What To Expect When You Come In For Dental Implant Treatment
Before any treatment can be done we ask you to come in for a consultation so that we can check that implant treatment is the right option. Although most patients are suitable for implant treatment, sometimes certain things can cause the treatment to be unsuitable. This is rare but we want you to get the best possible value from the work, so we will always be honest about which treatments we think are best. We will always offer alternatives in the event that dental implant treatment isn't right for you.
If dental implant treatment is a great choice for you, following your consultation you will be invited to come in for treatment on a day convenient for you.
We will place local anaesthetic in the treatment area to ensure your complete comfort whilst you're with us. Once the area is totally numb we can place the implant in the jawbone and apply a dressing. You will also receive detailed aftercare instructions following your treatment. It may then take up to three or four months for your implants to heal fully and fuse with the jawbone, and we will regularly check the healing progress at check-up appointments.
Once healing has completed we can attach the abutment and crown to complete your implant treatment, leaving you with a beautiful, full smile once again.
