What To Expect
Your initial implant assessment appointment is an important opportunity for you to outline any concerns you may have with your current situation and express your desired outcome following treatment.
We will discuss in detail all treatment options that could help you to achieve your functional and aesthetic goals.
Nicholas will discuss the benefits and risks of all suitable treatment options and advise you on the best course of treatment to meet your needs. The treatment planning procedure is important as it will help us determine what is possible to achieve and what our limitations may be.
At this visit, a full medical history and thorough extra and intraoral examination will be carried out. If necessary, photos and impressions for study models and diagnostic wax ups will be taken on the same day. Preliminary dental radiographs (X-rays) will also be taken if required or, we can go over old films you may have, please bring them with you to this appointment.
Often a CT scan will be required for more accurate planning and assessment of your case. This can be done onsite at our practice at the same appointment.
Once all the required information is gathered, a full report and treatment plan will be outlined with all necessary treatment stages, costs and additional recommendations.
Disclaimer: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner
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.
