After our initial discussion, if you are happy to go ahead you will be booked to see our dentist in London and they will prepare your pre-treatment or if you already have a CT scan and a photo of your smile from your local dentist, then this is fine too. Our UK dentist will perform a checkup. If you have any infection you will be prescribed antibiotics. Any gum disease will be treated, and any teeth that need extracting will be done at this point. Any extraction that follows PPI treatment which prevents healthy bone loss.  Finally your CT scan will be taken.
