What to expect
Before any patient undergoes treatment at Evodental, they need to fully understand the procedure and what happens at each stage of their journey with us.
When you arrive for your Evo 1-Day Smile treatment appointment, you will already have attended the centre for both your free initial consultation and your record taking appointment. Detailed clinical and technical planning beforehand is a must with our ‘3D Scan and Plan Pathway’, hence these appointments are a mandatory part of your journey with us. They enable us to gather all the information we need to plan and carry out your procedure in advance, using our 3D software.
On your Evo 1-Day Smile treatment day, you will undergo the surgical procedure in the morning under local anaesthetic (lasting approximately 1 hour) and your new temporary teeth will be fitted in the afternoon (approximately 4-6 hours later). Our on-site Evolab3D expert craftsmen and state-of-the-art technology, means we can ensure optimum quality and the best looking Evolution Solution. You can then return home with your new teeth and new smile.
Two-weeks later, you will be invited back to the centre for your final fitting appointment, and the temporary PMMA prosthesis will be replaced with a bespoke and refined cobalt chrome PMMA bridge.
We are committed to outstanding levels of service and clinical care, and have pain management procedures in place to ensure a worry-free experience with us. You’ll also have a dedicated Client Coordinator to guide you through the procedure from start to finish, and our experienced team of practitioners, nurses and technicians will work together to provide you with a dental solution for life.
Your step-by-step Evo 1-Day Smile journey
Your journey with us begins here.
You’ll meet your dedicated Client Coordinator who will be with you through the entire process. You’ll then be introduced to your dental implant clinician who will carry out the clinical assessment. The clinical assessment is mandatory for all patients as it enables us to assess your medical and dental suitability for implants and for you to find out more about us and the treatment. You’ll be able to ask any questions you have.
As part of the clinical assessment, we may take a 2D (OPG) or a 3D (CBCT) scan of your mouth. This service is included as part of our free, no-obligation consultation process.
Based on our analysis, we will put together a comprehensive treatment plan and discuss this thoroughly with you. You will also be given a copy to take home and look over in detail.
You will also receive a quotation of the actual cost of your proposed treatment, and be able to discuss finance options.
If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will schedule a record taking appointment for you. This appointment takes approximately 1 hour. You dental practitioner will take initial dental impressions of your teeth and a bite record. You, together with your clinical and technical team will decide on the size, shape and colour of your new teeth.
We will then arrange your Evo 1-Day Smile treatment appointment.
This is the big day when you receive your brand new teeth and new smile! All our work is completed in the same day. A typical day would be as follows:
You arrive at the centre and, after settling in, are given your necessary pre-operative medication by a member of the clinical team.
You are taken into surgery and your clinical team carries out all surgical work, including all necessary teeth extractions and placement of the implants. The procedure involves placing anatomy specific geometry implants in the jawbone using keyhole surgery principles. The implants are placed at specific pre-determined angles and fixed in place. Detailed impressions are then taken and sent to our on-site laboratory. The surgery takes approximately 1 hour for each jaw and is carried out under local anaesthetic. After the surgery, you return to your private waiting suite to rest whilst your new smile is constructed in our laboratory.
Your new smile is now ready and is fitted as a custom-made temporary PMMA bridge. The bite is checked and, once everything is satisfactory, you are free to return home with your new teeth in place and enjoy a rest and evening meal. You will be given full post-operative instructions and medication.
After 2 weeks, it is time to visit us again to be fitted with your final stronger and permanent teeth; this is your custom-made reinforced cobalt chrome PMMA bridge.
There will be a recovery period following your dental implant procedure. Approximately 20-24 weeks later, we will see you again for a check-up to make sure that everything is healing properly. We will carry out any tweaks and relining of fit. Any post op check-ups are at no additional cost.
Your aftercare is very important to us and we recommend that you visit us annually for us to check how your implants are doing and that your new teeth are also performing well.
We take this opportunity to carry out a thorough oral screening; checking the health of the implant, the surrounding bone and gums, and the state of your dental prosthesis (to detect any signs of wear and tear). The service includes the removal of your bridge which undergoes microscopic analysis in our on-site lab, a full ultrasonic clean and polish of your teeth to return them to their original finish, and brand new connecting screws fitted where necessary. This will ensure a continued excellent fit and a “good as new” feel. There is a fee for the annual screening and maintenance service.
