Complex Cases
Many dentists refer complex cases to the unit. These patients may require advanced bone grafting techniques, a large number of implants or have other issues (e.g. medical problems) that require a greater level of expertise in the field. It is rare that a patient cannot be treated.  Sometimes, even a single tooth implant restoration can be classed as a complex case.
Your specialist will examine you and discuss in detail what options are open to you, including the potential benefits and risks. Only then can you make an informed choice. Many of our patients have undergone complex treatments, with treatment times varying from a few weeks to a couple of years. It is not unusual to require a group of specialist to complete the treatment, for example the orthodontist to align teeth prior to implant surgery or the consultant physician to control health issues prior to surgery. What we can promise is our full attention to your needs and our determination to provide you with a long term functional and aesthetically pleasing restoration to improve your quality of life and give you your smile and confidence again.
