Dental Implants can be used for a variety of different situations. Common examples are as follows:

Treatment Options

Treatment with Dental Implants requires careful planning and preparation in all phases. This helps us to achieve our high degree of success.

The Initial Consultation

After a clinical examination and a digital x-ray, we will plan the treatment process together with you. All the costs shall be detailed in a full consultation report. This will give you time to decide on the best treatment option for you.

Planning and assessment

Once we have decided on the best treatment for you we shall undertake more detailed planning including models of your mouth to help us to decide how the final prosthesis should look and feel.

In more complex cases we will often use computerized CT Scans to accurately assess the amount of bone available.

CT Scans are a valuable tool, they enable the bone to be measured in three dimensions; they also provide the means of measuring bone density.

Once we have all the necessary information we will then proceed with the treatment in one of 2 ways:

Staged treatment

The majority of dental implants can be placed using normal dental local anaesthetic in a short and painless procedure.

The simplest form of treatment involves carefully lifting the gum, placing the implant then replacing the gum so that the implant can heal with the jaw bone uneventfully.

After the suitable healing time the implant can be uncovered and the final crown, bridge or denture constructed to create as natural appearance as possible.

Immediate Implants

We can also replace failing teeth with immediate implants or stabilise a loose denture in a single visit.

More advanced techniques include the removal of multiple teeth, the placement of the implants and construction of new provisional implant supported teeth, all on the same visit.

Once the bone has healed we can then construct the final porcelain restorations to create an as natural appearance as possible.
