From start to finish my treatment was excellent many appointments over a year until my final one having my implants fitted. I chose to be sedated as it was a lengthy procedure & I woke up to a stunning set of teeth.

I was very undecided about having a dental implant as I was absolutely petrified at the thought of all the procedures.

However, Gordon explained all the options with pros and cons which enabled me to make an informed choice. He made me feel at ease during the treatments, carefully explaining every step along the way.

The implant has blended perfectly with my other teeth and I sometimes forget which tooth is the implant. I would not hesitate to have another one if I lost another tooth

What to Expect
Your Consultation with Dr Black

Your initial consultation with Dr Black will focus on addressing your concerns and assessing your overall oral health. More often than not an X-ray is required to check your suitability for a dental implant and ocassionally an additiona CT scan. Prior to your appointment you will be asked to fill out a medical form which Dr Black will go through with you. After this Dr Black will inform you of your different treatment options along with an easy to understand explanation of each treatment, costs and the associated time scales so that you have everything you need to make an informed decision on your best option.

Your implant placement appointment

Dr Black will run through the different stages of treatment that will take place. To alleviate pain a local anaesthetic is gently applied to make your dental implant experience pain free. Afterwards you will then be asked to thoroughly brush your teeth and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash. We follow a strict sterile protocal to give your dental implant the best success rate possible, this involves setting up the surgery with sterile drapes, Dr Black & his assistant wearing a sterile hat, gown and gloves and a sterile hair net and gown for you as well. We will also wipe your skin with a disinfectant skin wipe. We make a small incision in your gum to make space to place the implant and then follow this with resorbable sutures.

Aftercare

Following dental implant placement we recommend that you rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash for at least 1 week. You may wish to take some painkillers during this time, however we have found that most patients find this unnecessary. We book you in for an appointment 2 weeks later to review how your implant is healing and to remove any residual sutures that have not yet resorbed. During this time, Dr Black will be available to you for any advice or guidance you may need during this time.
