3 Great Reasons Why A Dental Consultation Is Paramount To Your Dental Implant Success
Here at Sheen Dental before clients undertake any form of treatment for dental implants in Richmond, we always advocate a consultation. There are several reasons for doing this and in actual fact; it can often be paramount to your dental implant success. Let’s take a look
Banishes dental fears
As many as 1 in 3 people in the UK experience some sort of fear or anxiety when visiting the dentist and in most cases this fear is often exacerbated because of uncertainty. In this instance, the patient’s anxiety levels are likely to increase simply because the implant treatment is new and alien to them and as a result, they don’t know what to expect. For this reason, by coming in and having a chat with our dental implants co-ordinator, the patient then leaves knowing exactly what to expect, therefore tackling the fear factor head on. During this consultation, patients can meet the team, discuss the treatment and see how it works, look at the facilities that we offer, and most importantly go away with a good idea of how the whole experience will help.
Creating treatment plan
Prior to undergoing surgery for a dental implant in Richmond, we like to give our patients a thorough oral examination and treatment plan. Using a 3D CT scan we can obtain a complete 3D image of the patient’s mouth, which includes bone density and bone mass which is crucial to implant success. We can also determine whether a bone graft will have to be done prior to implantation. Once we’ve gathered all the information then we can give the patient a clear and concise treatment plan including time frames, for the various stages of treatment including recovery times.
One of the main causes of dental implant failure is the lack of, or incorrect, after care by the patient. Oral cleanliness is paramount to the success of any implant as it prevents bacterial build up which could lead to gum disease and a weakened implant. During a consultation our experienced team will show you exactly how you can look after your implants so that they can remain a permanent fixture. They’ll give you hints and tips for a thorough and hassle-free cleaning regime which ensures that your implants look as good as new for a long time to come.
