Implant treatment explained
It takes a few stages to have a Dental Implant placed. It will take from 3-9 months depending on your oral condition.
The first step is the Surgical Placement of the Implant. This is a surgical procedure and will be performed in the practice under strict sterile conditions. We are able to provide this treatment under Local Anaesthetic or Sedation (Oral or IV).
Some patients don’t have sufficient jaw bone for a straight forward placement of the implants. In situations like this, we are required to perform a Bone Expansion, Bone Grafting or Sinus Lift procedure before the implants are placed.
Some additional short appointments to the surgery are needed for suture removal, exposing of the implants, etc.
Who is suitable for an Implant placement?
The vast majority of people are suitable for implant treatment but before we go on with the treatment we normally require some laboratory tests in order to ensure a smooth process of the Implant Surgery and an uneventful healing. In many cases a computer tomography (CT Scan) is needed to evaluate the bone and to localize the nerves.
