its about quality of life

Dr Vekaria’s aim is to clinically restore your dentition on a long-term basis and to give you teeth that will allow you to function, smile with ease and face the world with confidence.  

His philosophy is that a beautiful Smile stems from solid foundation, good function and beautiful teeth. This result can be created from the understanding of the smile design where by, teeth are placed at its most natural position. This can only be done if the missing and deficient foundation is reconstructed prior to positioning the aesthetic tooth. A new patient will usually be given the opportunity to see such cases on the outset prior to committing to any part of their treatment.

 Dr. Balwant Vekaria is one of a few Accredited and Recommended Implant Dentists in the UK by the AAID (American Academy of Implant Dentistry)

What is the AAID?

AAID stands for the American Academy of Implant Dentistry – an organization promoting the standard of care for comprehensive implant dentistry.

History of the AAID

The American Academy of Implant Dentistry was founded in 1951, and is the first worldwide organization solely dedicated to implant dentistry. The AAID’s members include oral and maxillofacial surgeons, general dentists, prosthodontists, periodontists, and other dental professionals who have a keen interest in the implant dentistry field. The AAID is currently representing more than 4,500 dentists from all over the world.

How the AAID Helps Patients

The AAID gives patients the valuable information they need when it comes to dental implants, and the steps involved in the entire treatment procedure. Patients can also use the AAID to find dental implant experts, through the organization’s Associate Fellow and Fellow credentials. These credentials, which are set by the AAID, can help patients in identifying which dentists adhere to the specific expertise and standards in the field of oral implantology.

Finding dental implant experts is easier with the help of the AAID. Implant dentists who have AAID credentials are guaranteed to provide patients with the best possible treatment options, compared to dentists who have the capability to place implants – but without the means to do so with great expertise and skills.

Dentists and AAID Credentialing

The AAID provides uses the Associate Fellow and Fellow membership examinations for bona fide credentialing in implant dentistry, and these credentials are recognized by the state boards. The American Academy of Implant Dentistry fully supports its members’ research and clinical interests, in the quest to attain the highest standards in implant dentistry. Members’ achievements and milestones are also recognized and highly encouraged by the AAID.

Dentists who wish to augment their expertise in the field of implant dentistry can do so starting with the Associate Fellow membership. This certificate will let patients know of a dentist’s credentials and experience in the field of implant dentistry. There are minimum requirements that need to be met with regards to the experience and educational attainment, before getting the Associate Fellow membership certificate.

The Fellow membership provides dentists with a special validation of their proficiency and expertise in implant dentistry. The examination for the Fellow membership can only be taken by dentists who have:

  • The required minimum experience and educational attainment;
  • Practiced implant dentistry for a minimum of five years;
  • Proficient in both the surgical and restorative phases of the dental implant treatment
