In a previous blog we presented some ideas regarding how to chose a dental implant system.
The dental implant dentist usually tries to find systems that will be up to date and that offers answers to various clinical challenges including adequate cosmetic outcome, same day teeth options, immediate implants…etc
Just before Christmas, a patient contacted the Clinic after a long break.
He developed a complication with his dental implant.
The abutment screw broke. As a result, he lost the fitted cosmetic crown.
The patient repeatedly missed his regular maintenance visits with changing bite and loss of other teeth. Such maintenance is strongly recommended, at least annually to make sure the implant is functioning properly and the gum around the implant is healthy.
Clearly the patient was in lots of distress. As Christmas was approaching and with tight budget we were trying to find a solution to keep everyone happy.
Removing the fractured screw from a dental implant is a demanding procedure that requires special skills.
The challenge was not just the difficulty of the case but also the financial implications with the need to make a new cosmetic crown and to order new implant’s parts.
The patient was lucky to trust our choice to use Bredent dental implants system.
An email to the company UK director received immediate reply.
Within 24 hours, a retrieval kit was dispatched and the company committed to the repair of the implant back to its original working condition with a new fitted cosmetic crown all paid for by the Bredent Dental.
At London Smile Care and as a sign of goodwill, Dr Daoudi specialist dental implant dentist, offered his services for free to fix this problem.
The fractured screw was successfully removed, new cosmetic crown was made and the laboratory cost was all paid for by Bredent.
Bredent implants is a reputable German based company committed to research and development. Bredent introduced the fast and fixed dental implant concept for all on 4 same day teeth with user-friendly dental implant system.
Most importantly the amazing offered support.

Thank you Bredent for making our patient’s Christmas
