There is always an element of hesitation
and doubt during any surgical procedure, even when the success rate of this
procedure is said to be up to 98%. Once people understand what the
procedure entails, they are more likely to become relaxed in competent and
confident professional hands.
dental implants ensures that every one of their patients is
statistically suitable for this procedure, by asking essential information
about their patient’s medical and dental history, their lifestyle, their habits
and what their smile goals are, regarding the final results of this treatment.
A thorough examination of the patient’s
mouth coupled with numerous digital scans, X-rays, impressions and photographs
will be taken of the teeth and mouth. This will give the dentist a good idea of
their patient’s current oral health condition and what kind of treatment will
be best suited to ensure maximum comfort and outstanding results that are able to last a lifetime.
With the use of innovative and modern
machinery that has been specifically designed for such procedures, dentists are
able to accurately plot the location of the implant screw which will ultimately
improve the chances of success, minimise healing time and be naturally fitting
and more comfortable in the mouth.
How does the treatment plan work?
During the initial consultation, the
dentist will have an informal chat with their patients to determine whether
this treatment is right for them and to answer any questions, concerns or
queries that the patient may have regarding the entire treatment process.
Should initial background information
and discussion prove positive, all necessary scans and photographs will be
taken so that dentists can plot, with the help of dedicated software, what the
treatment plan will likely be.
Costs for the whole procedure can be
quoted at this stage, once the dentist understands if there are any additional
factors that need to be accounted for. It is important to consider any
underlying health concerns before treatment takes place for the greatest
likelihood of success.
Such concerns as gum disease or tooth
decay should be treated before implants are inserted. Patients should be made
aware of the risks that are associated with smoking and other lifestyle
By providing a bespoke service that
addresses each individual’s needs personally, patients can rest assured knowing
that their personal needs are always attended to and that the best possible
result is being created for them.
Placement of the implant itself is
essentially simplified by the detailed and extensive planning that has taken
place beforehand. An incision is made into the gum and a socket is gently made
in the precise location for the titanium screw to be placed into.
With the use of specialised equipment,
the procedure leaves minimal impact on the body and extensive healing time is
given, to allow the bone and surrounding soft tissues to fuse with the material
of the implant screw, to ensure strength and longevity.
A natural looking and fully functional
crown will then be placed onto the screw to remain in place for life. A great
alternative to false teeth, patients can enjoy confidence in their smile again.
