The 4 stages permanent denture on implant treatment
The four stages treatment are:
- Implant placement
- Denture creation and placement
Your initial consultation is where we discuss your suitability for implants; and what is the best option for you. To be a suitable candidate you need to be in relatively good health, have healthy jawbone density, and realistic expectations of treatment outcome.
To prepare it may be necessary to have x-rays and CT scans to plan out the treatment. This planning covers the plan for implant placement and denture construction.
Your implants will be placed either by a dentist or surgeon. The number of implants required will be explained in the preparation stage and will depend on the size of the denture or implant bridge being used. For your jaw to heal around the implants can take between 3 to 6 months depending on: type of surgery and your body’s natural healing ability.
Denture creation and placement
The denture will be constructed to suit your individual needs. Once it has been built, we will make sure it fits comfortably before securing it to your dental implants.
