Examination and planning
Using our cutting-edge CT scanner, we will examine your jawbone to ascertain the best position to place the implants (as described above), and the relevant bone grafting requirements.
Before treatment takes place, Our implant surgeons will ask you if you would like the option of sedation during the surgical placement of your implant. While we will outline what’s involved with sedation for you before your appointment, you can read a little bit about this before your appointment here. A temporary bridge is placed, so you have the ability to chew and bite during the 3–6 month healing period. During this healing period, you have the opportunity to trial your new smile and, together with your dentist here at Oatlands Dental Lounge, decide on any changes such as tooth shade and positioning. This period also allows the implants to completely fuse to the bone, before your permanent restoration is secured in place.
Healing period and finished result
Once the healing period has passed, we can invite you into the practice to have your custom-made bridge or dentures fitted.
