What is the treatment process?
1. We assess your teeth and gums to ensure you are a suitable candidate for implants. We take digital x-rays and will require a ct-scan to check if you have enough bone volume for the successful placement of implants.
2. After administering a local anaesthetic, we carefully place the implant in the jaw and, over a few weeks, this will integrate with the surrounding bone. The healing period can vary between individual patients and also depends on bone quality.
3. Restorative phase
When fully healed, the replacement teeth can be attached to the implant fixture using connecting screws. These will either be crowns or bridges, which stay securely in place, or dentures, which can be removed for cleaning.
