Apicoectomy

Bone Graft

+ More
  • A bone graft or bone augmentation may be required for patients who have a soft or thin jaw bone and are having dental implants.

  • 3 - 5 days

    Patients may need to stay longer if they are having a bone graft from the hip bone. A longer stay may also be required for cases where the sinus is affected.

  • Learn more about Bone Graft

Braces

+ More
  • Braces are used to straighten and align teeth. They can help to correct many orthodontic problems, and prevent problems further down the line. The brace works by applying continuous but gentle pressure to the teeth, which causes the teeth to slowly move. In order for the teeth to move into the desired direction, the braces need to be adjusted regularly by the orthodontist.

  • 1 - 4 days

    This time is required per trip. Patients need several trips to get the braces adjusted, unless an orthodontist at home can offer follow-up care.

    Cannot recommend Dr Carine Borges and the dental clinic enough! Came in for an Invisalign consultation and walked out with my dream smile following Dr Carine's expert advice. She executed my composite bonding treatment with such precision and care - best dental experience I've ever had!

    personaly feel nervous and scared about seeing a dentist, however I had a very pleasant experience at smilepod. I've been at this clinic a couple of times for check-up, filling and other treatments ,and I was extremely satisfied each time. Thanks to the professional and super friendly team, also special thanks to Dr Carine, who made my treatments smooth and fearless every time .

    Had a hygiene appointment (the "Classic") with Lorena and she was fantastic. Very thorough and made a big effort to make sure there was no discomfort at all. Will definitely go back.

    I'd been putting off going to the dentist for 2 years but I'm glad I came here. Dr. Stephen Nkansah is amazing, my check up and clean were completely painless (unlike some places I've been before) and he explained everything really well. Overall my experience at Smilepod Moorgate was brilliant and they're really well organised (again, unlike a lot of places!). I'm definitely not going to wait another 2 years with a dentist this good :)
