Highest Quality Implants
Thistle Dental is at the forefront of digital dentistry and the most advanced dental implant practice in North East Scotland
High Quality, Reliable and Trusted Implant System
Thistle Dental is a state-of-the art, high-tech, multi-disciplinary care centre that provides everything under one roof – from your consultation, scans and surgery, to the laboratory work and your tooth restoration. This allows us to provide a truly patient-focused service that is fast and efficient, yet extremely high quality and delivers the best results.
By choosing a trusted and predictable implant system and utilising the very latest digital technology Dr Kavi can restore smiles to their former glory – often in just one day.
Dental implants are a long lasting solution for replacing missing teeth and providing a secure anchor for bridges and dentures. They look, feel and work just like natural teeth and many of our patients say they cannot tell the difference between their own teeth and their implants.
A Two-Stage Process for Implants
Implants come in two parts. The first is a screw made from ultra-pure titanium that replaces the missing root and which is placed into the jaw. Next, a crown, bridge or denture is fixed firmly to the screw.
Dr Kavi has been an implant dentist since 2004 and during that time he has placed more than 2,000 implants, using only the highest quality implants on the market to deliver the best results. He is listed in the top 1% of implantologists in Europe based on his success and the numbers of implant placements carried out.
Strong, Natural-Looking Ceramic Crowns
Alongside the Ankylos implant system we use E-Max crowns. We prefer these all-ceramic crowns because of their longer lasting, aesthetic, strong and durable qualities.
An E-Max crown is considered to be the best match to your own natural teeth. The transparent colour and lifelike shape ensures that it is unlikely to be noticed and because there is no metal alloy base this means no unsightly-looking grey line around your gum line. They are strong, long lasting and unlikely to crack or fracture when compared to many other types of crowns.
Looking to the Future
Our mission is to become the go-to implant dental centre in the North East of Scotland, across Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth, Stirling and Angus and up to Inverness, and we are well on our way to achieving this goal.
