Welcome to Total Dental Care Implant Centre, Folkestone
Situated in the port town of Folkestone, our award-winning dental implant centre is well-known for providing same-day dental implants, also known as smile in a day treatment.
Smile in a day with same-day dental implants
Smile in a day treatment at Total Dental Care involves placing dental implants and a full set of temporary, natural-looking fixed teeth on the same day. The temporary teeth are then replaced with a set of permanent teeth once your gums have healed.
It’s often used as a solution for those who have few or no remaining teeth or don’t want to wear dentures. One of the main benefits of the treatment is that there’s no need for long healing periods and multiple surgeries, which is common with implant placement.
The smile in a day treatment can restore both the look of your smile, as well as your ability to bite and chew normally. After years of feeling self-conscious about the appearance of your teeth, your sense of confidence could be restored in a matter of hours.
If you’re interested in smile in a day treatment, we offer free consultations. Get in touch with us to find out more.
Experienced with complex dental needs
The majority of our patients have complex dental needs and require smile in a day on at least one full jaw, however, the technique is also suitable for single and multiple implant placements. We regularly treat patients without needing to perform bone grafts or sinus lifts, but we can provide these procedures if necessary.
We have been able to treat many patients who have been previously told they aren’t suitable for implants, with our innovative techniques. Due to the specialist skills of our team, we routinely treat patients referred to us by other dentists. Dr Michael Zybutz is also one of the few UK registered dentists who can offer zygomatic cheekbone implants, which we accept referrals for.
Expert clinicians and specialist-led care
Our lead dental surgeon who carries out smile in a day treatment, Dr Michael Zybutz, is an expert in his field. He has over 25 years’ experience placing dental implants and is a GDC registered specialist periodontist. He’s also a diplomate of The American Board of Periodontology, a world authority for dental implants, aesthetics and bone regeneration.
From 2013 to 2015, he was the resident dental expert on Channel 5’s ‘Botched up Bodies’, correcting dental work using dental implants.
Award-winning patient care and innovation
We also have implant centres in Peterborough and London, Harley Street. Our group of implant centres have won two ‘My Face My Body’ awards including ‘Most Innovative Dental Treatment or Service’ and ‘Best Customer Experience’. We’ve also been finalists for four UK Private Dentistry awards for our patient care.
We offer a relaxing environment, with magazines and newspapers available for our patients in our modern, spacious waiting room.
Services for nervous patients
Our clinicians have extensive experience dealing with highly-anxious patients. Our approach is designed to be reassuring, supportive and honest, to build trust with our patients and help them overcome their dental phobia. Our patients will also have their own treatment coordinator who will be on-hand to guide them through each step of their treatment.
The majority of our patients opt for dental sedation, which is administered by an experienced sedationist who will stay with you throughout the procedure. This means you’ll be conscious but will be in a deeply relaxed state. We’ll be happy to speak to you about your options.
How to find our implant centre
You’ll find us on Sandgate Road, the main high street in Folkestone. If you’re driving, there’s limited parking on street and there are several pay and display car parks in easy walking distance of the practice.
