After we conduct a full dental examination, we discuss your options regarding regular dentures, missing teeth or tooth, including non-implant choices.
In some situations, dental implants might not be your only or best fixed teeth option. We never force treatments on you if they don’t fit.
After discussing the pros and cons of each option, you can ask any questions. We’ll advise on the best and most suitable choice for your case. If you choose to proceed with a treatment during this visit, we’ll discuss the fees, and you can then schedule your treatment appointment.
If you need time to consider, we can schedule another appointment for you to share your decision. Your best interest is our top concern. We never pressure you to choose a specific option or any treatment. You must feel completely comfortable with your dentist and your treatment decision.
After presenting all options and their advantages and disadvantages, you can make a well-informed decision about what suits you best.
The procedure itself involves placing a titanium implant into the jawbone to serve as a sturdy anchor for the dental prosthesis (crown, bridge, or denture). The procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia, ensuring that you feel no pain throughout. Following placement, the implant is left to integrate with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which usually takes a few months.
After the implant has integrated with the bone, it’s time for the restoration phase. During this step, an abutment is attached to the implant, and a dental prosthesis (crown, bridge, or denture) is then placed on top of the abutment. Our dentists will ensure a perfect fit and natural appearance.
Proper aftercare is essential to the success of dental implants. We provide detailed instructions for post-operative care, including oral hygiene practices and follow-up appointments to ensure the longevity and functionality of your implants.
At Stella Maris Dental, we believe that everyone deserves a confident, beautiful smile. Our dental implant treatments are designed to give you back your smile – and your confidence, we also want to be clear on what happens during a dental implants procedure so you are made to feel at ease.
