Those who have worn dentures for years are likely to have suffered bone loss. This does not mean you are unable to receive dental implants; you can still have successful implant surgery through a clinically proven procedure called bone grafting.
Bone loss is bad news, not only for your teeth, but also for the facial structure. If a tooth is lost and not quickly replaced with a dental implant, over time the bone behind it will recede and give the face a sunken appearance. Bone grafts revitalise and rejuvenate the face while providing the best possible foundation for implant treatment.
We know that just like any surgical procedure, a bone graft can be daunting. We are more than happy to talk you through your procedure step by step and work out the best arrangement for you. We’ll always make sure you’re fully aware of every option and comfortable with your informed decisions before moving forward.
We understand that you might feel anxious about your dental treatment, so we make things really easy for you when you come in for your treatment. For all anxious patients we offer the option of sleep dentistry. This is a combination of sedation and pain relief medication which helps sedate you to make you feel dowsy and relaxed during your procedure. This is provided by a specialist anaesthetist at our practice. This is much safer than undergoing a full general anaesthetic. If you would like to know more how we can help you with your dental anxiety, please ask your dentist.
