After the scan is done the information will be sent back to the dentist and a discussion will take place. They will discuss whether the implant is visible. Whether it will functional and aesthetically benefit you. And discuss dates and time for you to come in and have it placed.
You will be given a routine course of antibiotics, usually Amoxycillin (500mg, 3 times daily), for a week starting 4 days prior to implant placement.
The placement of the implant is normally done during an evening appointment by Dr J Allsopp. The placement of the implant take about half an hour.
2 weeks after the implant is placed we will ask you to come back to the practise to check that everything looks sound with the implant. It takes about 6-10 weeks for integration of the implant to occur. After about two month we will ask you to come back to the practise again to start the reconstruction process.
