If you’re wondering what the implant journey entails, take a look below at our detailed step-by-step process!
Initial Dental Implant Consultation at Sarum Dental
We know that everyone’s dental needs and expectations will differ, which is why we take a patient-centric and individualised approach to our patients’ care. When you book a consultation with our friendly implant dentists, they will undertake a detailed clinical check of your dentition from the comfort of our spacious and modern Salisbury dental practice.
Your implant consultant will take the time to get to know you, learn your reasons for choosing dental implant treatment, and will help you to make an informed decision about your treatment options.
Your implant dentist in Salisbury will determine whether implant treatment is the right option for you through various x-ray and 3D imaging tools. These diagnostic tools will help determine whether there is sufficient bone to proceed with the implant procedure and the overall health of your dentition.
Dental Implant Treatment
Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. On the day of your surgery, you will be placed under a local anaesthetic, so you will feel no pain or discomfort during the procedure. A temporary prosthetic tooth may be securely placed onto your new implant at this stage, so that you are able to leave the dental chair with a complete smile.
Immediately after surgery, you may feel slight discomfort at the sight of the implant placement, but this is temporary and easily remedied with over-the-counter painkillers. The healing phase will last between 2-3 months and the stitches will be removed after approximately one week after the surgery. Being diligent with your oral hygiene routine during this phase is vital to support the healing process.
Placement of the Final Prosthetic
During your healing phase, we will be busy working alongside our dedicated dental laboratory to produce your new crown, bridge, or denture from your impressions. This will be inserted onto the dental implant once your Sarum dentist is confident the healing process has been successful.
The aftercare process for your new implant and prosthetic is simple. Just like your natural teeth, you will need to book regular check-ups with your local Salisbury dentist and continue a comprehensive at-home oral hygiene routine. This will ensure the long-term function of your implants and new, complete smile.
