The Advantages of Implant Referrals
Implant therapy can be used for a number of clinical situations that you can relate to your patients. The most common reason being a single tooth replacement adjacent to healthy teeth.
Implant therapy can be beneficial in three/four unit bounded gaps where two implants can support three to four teeth. In complete edentulous arches, two lower implants can support a removable denture where 4-6 implants can do the same for the upper arch.
More complicated full arch fixed bridgework can be provided where 6-8 implants would be required. Adequate bone volume is a necessity for successful implant treatment using traditional methods. In cases, where bone volume is minimal, augmentative procedures can be undertaken from small grafts using xenograft material to large grafts using autogenous hip graft material.

Assessment Process for dental implant treatment:
A decision is reached with your patient as to the type of initial assessment that would be desired. A short appointment will determine from the outset, at no cost, whether an implant option is viable and whether bone augmentation is required.
It is at this point that the patient can decide for themselves if implant therapy or traditional restorative dentistry is more suitable.
A more detailed assessment will be carried out, if it is determined from the outset, that implant therapy is possible. This will involve a full restorative examination including soft tissue, periodontal, tooth, restoration and occlusal analysis. Detailed measurement of bone volume can be made for simple cases using digital radiography.
