What to expect from a dental implant consultation

If you’ve heard the latest buzz about dental implants in South Yorkshire and are wondering if they could be the answer for you, the first step is to book a consultation with an implant dentist. At PDC Dental Implants, we offer the options of an e-consultation, or you can visit in person at one of our South Yorkshire practices.

We understand that you have a busy life and may not have a great deal of time to spare. Or perhaps you’re not sure you want to commit to having dental implants in South Yorkshire, but want to talk to someone about the options and costs involved. An e-consultation is a great first step. It is free, and gives you the chance to learn more and decide if you want to come in for a full consultation and assessment.

What happens during an implant assessment?

A full assessment for dental implants in South Yorkshire is quite a lengthy process, so you should plan for it to last a little under an hour and a half. This may sound like a long time, but dental implants aren’t for everyone and we need to make a detailed assessment of your mouth and jaw, plus there will be plenty of time to talk through the options and for you to ask any questions you may have.

During the assessment, we will take a close look at more than just your mouth. The muscles of your head and neck will be taken into account, as will your jaw joints and bones. We’ll have a careful look at the health of your gums, and take x-rays, photographs and impressions.

If you currently suffer with a loose denture or failed denture, you can talk to our team about these problems. They will tell you about the different types of implants available, including All-on-4 implants. They will also discuss your jawbone density and tell you about the options of zygomatic implants and bone grafts if they feel your jaw may not have the required density to support an implant.

If you decide to go ahead with dental implants in South Yorkshire, we will give you a detailed written report for reference.
