Dental implants are an excellent treatment choice for restoring gaps left by missing teeth.

Treatment Planning Process for Dental Implants

Like any treatment solution, it is best if the treatment is the most compatible with the situation.

For this reason, a few considerations can be made during the Treatment Planning procedure before establishing a definitive plan of action.

An implant consultation is the best way to understand fully which implant system is best for you.

How Long is the Treatment Process?

Dental Implants can be a valuable adjunct to many other dental treatments. We will provide a detailed evaluation and complete a comprehensive dental assessment to decipher the best and most appropriate treatment for you.

Treatment Planning Considerations:

  • The number of missing teeth: Your bespoke plan depends on how many teeth are missing and where they are in the mouth. This is because we need to plan how the implant supports the dentition and anchors the artificial teeth.
  • What is the treatment goal, aesthetics or function or both? If aesthetics is a crucial requirement, other teeth may be involved in the overall smile design; otherwise, the plan focuses on restoring the functioning of the teeth, such as the improved chewing ability. 
  • The type and systems of the implant: Since there are so many different innovations and technical differences between each implant system and brand, the implantologist must explore the best choices that are the most compatible for your unique situation.
  • The foundation: Here, we will look at the quality and quantity of remaining bone tissue. We have to consider if there is enough of the correct type of bone available or whether we need to carry out pre-implant procedures such as Sinus Lifts or Bone Grafting.
  • Final Aesthetics of the gums. Here the dentist looks to see what the gum line should look like after treatment and whether additional treatment is necessary. Dentists can sometimes carry out gum grafting procedures to re-establish the gingival aesthetics after the implant treatment. 
  • Is there any treatment required for the other remaining teeth? We will consider any other restorative or dental treatment you may need. However, your general dental practitioner can carry out this work for you. 
  • Do we need to create implant-supported crowns, bridges or dentures? What would be the preferential treatment, and why? This type of understanding is critical to the overall management. We often liaise with your dentist to work in collaboration and true partnership to achieve your aesthetic and functional goals.
  • How will we restore the area whilst the area temporarily is healing from the surgery? While we wait for osteointegration to occur, we need to plan if aesthetics is a consideration. Especially when it involves missing teeth at the front of the mouth, we will probably supply a temporary denture.
