At Hertford Dental Implants in Hertford, we can offer you the benefit of experience and care when you have your dental implant surgery. We know that implants are very beneficial for patients but we also appreciate that the treatment journey can be challenging at times. We can make it clear to you what the positive impact on your life will be so that you can make an informed choice about whether to go ahead.
What can we offer you?
First up, we can share with you our knowledge and expertise and answer any questions you have about getting implants. You can ask us anything you want and we let you know or find out the answers. If you are well-informed then, when it is time to make the decision to go ahead, you know exactly what will happen and can prepare.
How we take care of you
At Hertford Dental Implants, your dentist does a lot of planning at the start. After making a detailed inspection of your mouth, they use digital imaging technology to make a plan for siting your dental implants.
The position and angle of implants are important. They are placed in your jawbone in a precise way so that, when healing has taken place, they are best able to withstand the forces that you exert when you are chewing or biting. They are very secure so you can make a broad range of food choices.
The other major plan is your overall treatment schedule. You may need some preparatory work such as removal of any unhealthy teeth or perhaps a bone graft.
The treatment itself will take place over a few hours and, afterwards, you will need follow up appointments at Hertford Dental Implants over a few months to check that everything is working as it should.
What will you need to do?
You need to talk openly with your dentist and answer questions about your health and lifestyle accurately so they can give you the best advice for you.
You also need to be prepared to take some time for convalescence after your treatment. Initially, this will mean bed rest for at least a day followed by a gradual resumption of your normal activities. Depending on the nature of your job and how physical it is, you may need to take time off work or restrict the strenuousness of your schedule for a little while.
