The Dental Implant Process
Step 1: Book an Implant Consult (30mins)
Initially, before any cosmetic dentistry, we carry out a scan of your mouth using our intraoral-oral scanner and plan for a 3D Cone Beam x-ray. This establishes your suitability by checking bone structure, bone density, tissues and nerves that can’t be identified on traditional x-rays.
Step 2: Book a Review Appointment (10mins)
Here we determine suitability and confirm acceptance of the treatment plan. At this stage, we will inform the MIS lab to start manufacturing the MGuide System for your single implant or implant bridge. A deposit will be taken at this appointment.
Step 3: Implant Surgery (60 mins)
A qualified, experienced dentist will perform your single implant or bridge implant surgery following the most stringent, regulated protocol.
Step 4: Restoration of the Implant(s)
This is usually planned for 3-6 months after the initial placement. The deferment of this appointment allows the implant time to integrate into the surrounding bone and for the soft tissue to heal.
Step 5: Continuing Dental Care
Just because you’ve left our chair, doesn’t mean you’ve left our care. On completion of the treatment, it is advised you care for the dental implant as you would your other teeth. We strongly suggest regular check-up appointments at our Newcastle dental clinic plus oral hygiene reviews with Oral Health Therapists.
Why use the MGuide System?
At The Good Dentist, we love being able to provide you with the latest in digital tech. The MGuide System* permits more precise surgical procedures and as a consequence more predictable aesthetic results. In essence, the MGuide System combines the art and science of dental implant surgery.
**The use of this system is at no added cost to the patient**
