During your initial appointment for a single missing tooth in Cheltenham we begin by carrying out a thorough assessment of your mouth, gums and teeth. This allows us to accurately plan your implant treatment.
A referral will be sent to a local dental practice where they will carry out a CBCT scan. The scan uses the latest technology to assess your bone density and create your individual treatment plan. This scan also helps us to determine the size of the implant and where the implant will be placed in the jaw.
It is crucial that you have sufficient bone to support the implant. However, if you do not have enough bone, you could still have dental implants. It is possible for us to safely and effectively correct your bone deficiency with techniques such as bone grafting and sinus lifts.
