Stage 01

Consultation 

Firstly you would meet with Dr Mallorie for a full assessment of your mouth and the site where the tooth is missing.

Stage 02

Investigations

We would then perform a 3D x-ray using our state of the art cone beam CT scanner. This allows us to assess the volume of bone present for implant placement. If there is a good volume of bone present then we would progress to implant surgery. But if there was not enough bone volume present then we would discuss the option of a bone augmentation procedure to regenerate the bone prior to implant placement.

Stage 03

Implant surgery

We would then perform the surgery in one of  our comfortable treatment suites to place the dental implant in to the site. This is usually performed with local anaesthetic only, but we do also offer sedation if you wish to consider this to chemically relax you during the surgery. Single implant surgery is usually a straightforward process if there was sufficient bone volume available on your 3D scan. It normally takes 7-10 days to recover from the procedure.

Stage 04

Implant restoration

We usually then wait three months for the site to heal and for your bone to fuse on to the implant surface via a process called "osseointegration". After that is compelted we then take impressions of the implant position to allow for the crown to be made. We work with a dental laboratory in South Wales to deliver the highest quality result for you from their award-winning dental technicians. Once fabricated the crown is attached to the implant and the restoration of the tooth is complete. 

Stage 05

Maintenance

We then usually review the completed restoration six months after the inital fit to check all is stable and that your cleaning routine is appropriate for the site. It is very important to look after your dental implants the same as you would your natural teeth and regular follow-ups of the site would be planned in order to try and help ensure it has a long lifespan in your mouth.
