The placement of a dental implant is usually no worse, or often less traumatic than having the tooth out which the implant is going to replace. They can sometimes be placed at the same time as the tooth is removed but only when the circumstances are right. We choose to use sterile set up protocols with gowns and drapes, as you would see in an operating theatre so that the environment is optimal for success.
If we need to use regenerative materials we use the most tried, tested and researched biomaterials available and protocols recommended by the International Team for Implantology for a predictable result. Careful, tidy surgery results in more predictable and quicker healing with less scarring, which is particularly important in the front of the mouth.
We pride ourselves on our post-treatment care and will take time to ensure you are comfortable before you leave the practice. You will already know what to expect and how to look after things after your surgery as we will give you this information before your visit.
