a new smile
Using dental implant
1. Assessment, Diagnosis and Planning
The first step is to consult with our experienced dentists for a thorough assessment of your situation, history, and requirements. We will first listen to what your concerns are and what you want to achieve. We then offer the most suitable treatment options for your situation, explaining dental implants and sedation dentistry and pricing options. We will propose a plan of action, answering your questions and ensuring you understand the process involved.
Radiology referrals for cone beam imaging, x-rays, or CT scans may be organised, if necessary. Photographic and radiographic assessment of your smile is done at this stage.
Sedation may be used for patient comfort during oral (dento alveolar) surgery. Dental implant surgery generally takes around one to two hours depending on the number of implants required and whether associated bone grafting or modification is needed. The procedure can often be done in one stage, but some cases may require a two stage surgery where dental implants are initially left submerged under the gum and exposed in a short procedure at a future date.
Dental implants will commonly be left for a period of about three months for a microscopic process called osseointegration, essential for creating a secure base for your new teeth. Temporary solutions will replace your missing teeth during this time.
After the integration period, permanent restoration work (crown, bridge or prosthesis) is completed for a fixed, permanent and naturally attractive result. In some cases, such as the immediate All-on-4 Plus® technique for full sets of teeth, the final bridge is fitted within 2-3 days of the surgery rather than the conventional three month wait.
5. Post Care
Care for your dental implants as if they were natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing and hygiene maintenance for a long-lasting, healthy smile.
