As you would be aware dental implants are well accepted by most patients, however, there are some individuals with a higher risk of complications including those who have poor healing, are smokers, have uncontrolled diabetics or who are taking some immune suppressant or osteoporosis medications. These risk factors may increase the failure rate.
During your first visit, you will undergo a complete assessment by our team and your suitability for all treatment options will be established. If not already provided we will take CBCT scans, intraoral scan, extraoral images and then conduct an assessment of your current dental situation. All options of treatment will be discussed with you and you will be provided with not only a verbal outline of your options but also written notes from the appointment.
We welcome open discussions with patients, love questions and try to understand treatment from a patients perspective. Patient education is absolutely key to establishing trust and assisting you to receive the best possible care available, whatever treatment approach you choose to adopt. Patient education is also essential for continued oral health after your procedure and we see it as part an important part of our role to support you.
