dental-implants-in-kentWhen you are considering something like dental implants in Kent, this is particularly vital. You will be committing to an extensive, life-changing procedure, if you decide to go ahead.

Informed decision

We want you to be able to make an informed decision about your own treatment. This means explaining the procedure to you in detail without using jargon or complicated technical terms. We make sure you know what will happen and when.

At Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited, we also believe in being transparent about the challenges of a treatment as well as the benefits. This means that your expectations match what will actually happen and that there are no difficult surprises.

With a treatment like dental implants in Kent, there are usually several stages to the process including consultation, procedure, healing and aftercare. If you need preparatory work like tooth removal or a bone graft, then this may add to the overall length of treatment. Every patient is an individual and will take a different route to dental implants. We give you a personalised overview of your treatment before you agree to start.

What happens next?

The dentist will plan your procedure with you after a detailed assessment of your mouth and jawbone. The final plan will tell you when your appointments will be and what will happen. It will also include a breakdown of all likely costs so you can budget accordingly for your treatment. You will receive all of this in writing.

What happens afterwards?

You will be given the information you need to prepare for the effects of your treatment at our clinic in Kent. Dental implants need time to become integrated into your jawbone after insertion and, during this time, you need to be gentle with them.
