YOUR INITIAL DENTAL IMPLANT CONSULTATION
We want to give you an overview of what you can expect when you visit us for assistance with any problems you may be experiencing. We'll take you through the typical journey a patient takes when receiving care at our clinic, including important points to keep in mind. It's important to note that while this represents a typical pathway, there may be certain circumstances, such as emergencies, that may cause the path to change. However, we hope this gives you a good idea of what it's like to receive care at The Campbell Clinic.
After the placement of dental implants or any surgical aspect of dental implant treatment, it's crucial to let your body heal and for nature to take its course. This healing process typically lasts from around 6 to 12 weeks, but the duration may vary depending on your unique circumstances. Rest assured, we will always be upfront and honest with you about the healing period and what to expect. We understand that you may want to proceed as quickly and safely as possible, but our top priority is ensuring your well-being and making sure that everything has settled and healed before proceeding to the next stage. If you experience any issues during the healing period, don't hesitate to contact us via phone or email, and we will promptly address any concerns or necessary treatments.
Once the healing phase is complete and the surgical aspect of dental implant treatment is done, patients enter the restorative phase. This is a detailed and complex stage of the treatment, and it's essential to proceed carefully to achieve the best possible results with the longest lifespan. Although some may think it's a straightforward process, it's crucial to execute it properly. The restorative phase typically begins with an exposure appointment, where we uncover the implants under the gum. This involves a minor local anaesthetic procedure, identifying the implants, removing the lid on top, and replacing it with a longer healing cap.
Proper maintenance is key to ensuring the success of complex dental procedures, especially dental implant treatment. At our practice, we prioritise hygiene even before treatment begins. That's why we require all our patients to meet with our exceptional hygiene team first to ensure that their mouth is as clean as possible and that they can maintain excellent oral hygiene throughout the procedure.
