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.

If you’re using public transport, several local buses stop nearby in the town centre and we’re an eight-minute walk from Folkestone Central train station.

Whitening can be an important part of a smile makeover. We always check the suitability of your teeth, as it may not be recommended for some patients with high sensitivity. It’s important to know that we may not be able to treat all of your teeth: whitening can’t alter the colour of fillings, crowns, veneers, for example. Your dentist can explain and suggest any options open to you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

No, Bupa Dental Care practices are open to everyone. If you do have Bupa dental insurance, at selected practices we can guide you through your claim.

First, please check that our practice offers the services you’re looking for, then simply use the referral form on our contact page. Do feel free to give us a call and tell us what you’re looking for.
