1. Patients’ Medical History:
The patient is asked whether or not they have had important organ illnesses. If so, their current health condition is investigated. If there is an ongoing illness, treatment will be postponed until that illness’ resolution.
2. Oral and Radiological Examination:
The condition of all the teeth, gums and the bone of the implant sites are evaluated. Bite alignment is also checked while panoramic x-rays and, in certain cases, tomographic scans are taken.
3. Temporary prosthetic preparation:
These are used while the final crowns are prepared.
The implants are inserted into the bone under local anaesthetic.
5. Post-procedure care
The first 2 weeks are important for your recovery. Your doctor will give you a special mouthwash to maintain oral hygiene together with a course of antibiotics. For the first 2 days, you should apply ice while avoiding very hot or cold foods.
6. Fitting of permanent crown
The final, permanent crown is fitted into place after a waiting period of around 2-4 months.
