We take very special care with patients that are nervous about any dental treatment, especially dental implants, and you’ll be reassured to hear that all our treatments are carried out painlessly.
Whether you are an existing or new patient requesting dental implants, you are in safe hands with Stella Maris Dental.
At Stella Maris Dental Practice, we take pride in the feedback we receive from our patients and the work that is carried out. We have several case studies on our website to demonstrate work that has been carried out at our practice. In this case study the patient had lost confidence socially and had been wearing a plastic upper denture for over 15 years. To read his case study:
I have been providing dental implants for over 20 years now. I have trained in the UK and Germany and offer different systems including German and Swiss dental implant systems.
I have treated hundreds of patients and placed over 1500 implants, from one implant to full arch implants per patient.
I have used Straumann (Swiss), and Oktagon (Swiss) implant systems.
After a full dental examination is carried out, we discuss the options that you have regarding the missing teeth or tooth including non-implant options.
In some situations, implants are not the only or best option available to you for fixed teeth. Once the ups and downs of each option are discussed with you, you have the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. You will be advised as to what is the best and most appropriate option in your particular case and why. If you decide at this visit to go ahead with your chosen option, then the fees are discussed, and you will normally book your treatment appointment.
Sometimes you may want to think about your options. In this situation, another appointment is booked when you can tell us how you wish to proceed. Your best interest is paramount to us. There is no hard sell or pressure to choose one option or the other or any treatment whatsoever, for that matter! You have to feel 100% comfortable with your dentist and your decision to proceed with any treatment.
Once you have been given all the available options and the pros and cons of each, you can make an informed decision and informed consent as to what is appropriate for you and your circumstances.
At our practice, there are two options available to you to get comprehensive professional dental advice:
No. The procedure is totally painless; this is our promise to you.
Placing a dental Implant is much less traumatic than taking a tooth out. It is a high precision surgical procedure.
You’ll have surface anaesthetic cream placed on the area first. This will freeze the gum before you have the local anaesthetic. In this way, you will not feel the injection itself. When the gums are properly frozen (we test for this before the procedure starts) we place your implant(s) so you won’t feel any pain whatsoever.
Most patients say they feel a little discomfort afterwards (during the healing stage) but were far more comfortable following the procedure than they expected. Your dentist will prescribe painkillers and a special mouthwash for use after your implant procedure. You will be given full written instructions covering all the information you need before, during the healing stage and afterwards.
In this way, you will know exactly what to expect. One of our professional team will ring you the next day to check that all is well.
You will be seen a week after the treatment to remove the stitches (totally painless) and then followed up regularly to check that the healing is progressing well before the implant is ready to have a crown or a bridge attached to it. This normally takes around three to five months. Each person is different.
No implant case is the same, like no mouth is the same. We deal with some very complex cases, but do our level best to keep our professional fees uncomplicated.
