1. Initial consultation with our dentist. The dentist that will place your implants will carry out this consultation. He will carry out a thorough assessment to check your entire mouth, soft tissues, bite, fillings etc so that he can assess suitability and plan your case for the best outcome. He will discuss all the pros, cons, appointments and costs involved specific to your case allowing you to make an informed decision. Following the consultation, a detailed summary of the consultation, clinical findings and if suitable, a proposed treatment plan will be sent to you. This treatment plan will show the number and time line of appointments and the costs involved at each stage. We also offer 0% finance options so do speak to your dentist about this should you be interested.
  2. Imaging: If you are suitable for a dental implant, and you decide to go ahead with treatment, we will arrange for you to have a CT (CBCT) scan of the area to be treated. This gives your dentist a more accurate image to assess the quality and quantity of the bone in which the implant is to be placed. If the quality of bone is insufficient, an additional stage may be needed where bone restoration surgery is required prior to the implant placement stage
  3. Surgical/Implant Placement: Using the CBCT scan, and after thorough planning, the dentist will carefully place a titanium implant into the bone under the gum.
  4. Osseointegration: This is the time during which the implant is left under the gum to allow it to ‘fuse’ to the bone. It can be anything between a few weeks and several months depending on the case
  5. Restoration: This is when the top part of the implant is restored with a crown, bridge or implant. For a single crown, a minimum of two appointments is needed and for a more complex procedure like an implant denture, 4-6 appointments may be needed.
