An initial consultation and thorough assessment is vital before proceeding with any treatment. During the consultation process, our experienced full arch implant dentist will review your oral and general health and take into account any medical conditions that may impact treatment. We’ll also take 3D X-rays using our advanced imaging technology to gain a complete picture of your mouth and jawbone. These images will form the basis of the template for your new teeth. This is also your opportunity to tell us what you’d like to receive and address any concerns you have about treatment. If treatment is suitable and you’d like to proceed, we’ll put together a detailed treatment plan based on your consultation, scans and images, so we can deliver the best possible results.
When it comes to having your implants placed, your comfort and safety is our top priority. We’ll have discussed anaesthesia with you during your consultation and will be ready to put you at ease. First, you’ll meet our anaesthetist, who’ll ensure you’re as comfortable as possible and will be pain-free throughout the procedure. Then, our highly trained implant dentist will place your implants. It will only take a few hours and, shortly after, we’ll be able to fit your replacement teeth to your implants. Once in place, we’ll check your bite and make sure you’re smiling from ear to ear before you leave us.
Immediately after the procedure, you’ll need to be careful with your implants. We advise you to eat a soft, healthy diet, drink plenty of water and avoid smoking. Within a few days, you should start to feel yourself again. However, it will still take up to six months for your jawbone to fuse with the implants, so you’ll need to look after them. That said, as long as you follow our advice, practise good oral hygiene and have regular checkups with us, then that new smile won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
