What happens in a dental implant consultation?
Dental Implants are the closest resemblance as well as feel to real teeth. They can replace single to multiple missing teeth and create a bond to the bone! Just like that of natural teeth. First things first we talk about what dental implants are, how they work and the different types of dental implant treatment that we do, such as dental implant bridges, all – on – four, teeth in a day and more!
During your assessment, your dentist will be analysing the height and density of your bone to make sure that it is sufficient to support dental implant(s). If you have suffered some bone loss there are many other options available depending on its severity such as bone grafting, sinus lifts, block grafts and more.
Dr Bruno Silva and his team have years of experience in implantology/dental implant treatment. During your consultation process, you will be booked in with one of our experienced dentists, who will perform a full dental check up. This is to evaluate the health of your remaining teeth and gums. If you have any existing oral health problems such as tooth decay or tooth wear our dentist can talk to you about treatment, as any oral health issues must be treated first before dental implant treatment. This can be incorporated into your treatment plan.
This simply means a gum and tissue evaluation, this is to see the health of your gum and mouth tissue to see if you may have any recession as well as infection such as gum disease this is to evaluate how your dental implants will be supported.
During your assessment, you will also receive a free full panoramic x – ray. This x – ray is to evaluate what is happening under the surface of your entire mouth, including your nasal passage and joints in your jaw. This is to evaluate if you have any impacted teeth, cysts, infections, fractures and more. This will help us develop a suitable treatment plan as well as options for your individual case.
Dependable on the outcome of your panoramic x-ray, in some more complex cases, you may require a CT scan. With an on-site CT scanner, this is available at the clinic at an additional fee.
Impressions and bite analysis
During your free assessment, we will take dental impressions as well as evaluate the relationship of your upper and lower jaw. This is so we can see how your mouth should close together as well as what we will be able to achieve when making dental prosthetics.
