The importance of good dental health
A decent level of basic dental health will be needed before you and your dentist progress with dental implant treatment.
As a start point, there will be a detailed and thorough examination of your mouth and remaining teeth and gums, to properly prepare for treatment. I’m certain you’ll need to have x-rays of your mouth carried out.
At your first appointment, your dentist will quickly be able to establish if dental implants are suitable for you or not, and you really should expect, at the very least, a verbal outline of how your dentist will approach your individual treatment.
When you’re considering the impact of dental implants after your treatment, you should be aware that things like hygiene procedure may be a little more complex than before. You may also have to spend a little more time on your cleaning routines.
There’s also a strong chance your dentist will want you to see the hygienist more frequently in the period after your treatment, just to make sure they are satisfied with your progress.
