Dental implant: The importance of good dental health
There are many reasons you might require dental implants but a good level of dental health will be required before you progress with dental implant treatment.
As a starting point, there will be a thorough examination of your mouth and existing teeth and your gums, this is to properly prepare for any future treatment. You will need to have x-rays of your mouth to ensure the best possible fit.
At your first tooth implant appointment when you begin the treatment, the dentist will quickly be able to identify 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 (teeth in a day might also be an option).
When you are 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 is 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.
