Dental Implant Consultation

We want to make sure that you are clear and informed on all your dental implant options, which is why we dedicate consultations dedicated to implants. We want you to have a clearer idea on what to expect with the dental implant, ensure you are suitable for the best success and allow you to ask any questions abut treatment and recovery. Your consultation will introduce you to your dental implant expert, who will undergo a full medical history and understand your needs as well as the condition of your oral health for long term success.

X-Rays are usually taken to facilitate the discussion so that it is personal to you and informative. The consultation process should allow you to have a greater understanding of dental implants, alternative treatments, advantages and disadvantages of different modalities both implants and non implants, timing, procedures and costs making you better informed and putting you in a position to make the correct choices about the treatment plan that’s best for you.

Denture Consultation

If you have missing teeth our denture consultation will form part of your Dental Health Check and you don’t need to be resigned to a life-time of wearing ill-fitting dentures that you can’t eat with and that look unnatural.

Nervous Patients

Be assured that you are far from alone and we have treated hundreds of people in your situation and they keep coming back! We recognise that dental phobia can be a real issue which affects your oral health over the long term. One visit to envisage dental and we promise to help you overcome the fear of the dentist. Before you even sit in the chair we discuss any anxieties you may have and take these on board when treating you – we want you to be in control.
