Dental Implants Leyland
A Dental Implant is a very small but strong post, made of materials which merge with the body, acting like a natural tooth root. An implant acts as a support for a tooth and can be placed at the clinic, meaning you don’t need to travel for the implant placement.
The Dental Implant Process
An in depth consultation, with Dr Assim Ghaffoor, our Senior Dental Clinician. At this appointment we will provide a thorough dental examination of your existing teeth and gums, where needed we take digital x-rays* from the inside and outside of your mouth.
Dr Assim Ghaffoor will discuss his findings with you and talk about any issues and advise you of your treatment options. This appointment is an ideal opportunity for you to discuss anything about your oral health and appearance which may be concerning you.
At this consultation we may suggest further analysis appointments**, for example; a CT scan may be required to check your bone levels.
We will work closely with you to formulate a bespoke treatment plan and, within seven days of your consultation, you will receive a letter detailing everything we have discussed.
* X-rays have an associated cost from £5.00 – We will always explain why they are needed and confirm you are happy to have then taken.
** Any appointments that take place at another location may have an associated cost which should be discussed with the treatment provider.

We will place the implant into the jaw bone using local anaesthetic to make the area numb; if you wish, we can provide Dental Sedation to help you relax during your appointment. We will advise you on how long this appointment will be, this treatment is relatively quick, lasting between one and three hours.
