Doing your own research can give you the basics of what you need to know to make your first appointment. It’s worth having a list of the things you want to ask your dentist so you can be sure you cover everything.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, you will get a thorough examination of your mouth that may include x-rays. This will be used to check suitability and to make a plan for your implant procedure.

For many people, there are different ways that dental implants can be placed for optimum function and your dentist will decide which way will be best. Based on all this, you can get a detailed timetable of treatment so that you know what will happen and when. This will help you to plan your life accordingly as dental implant treatment does require some time to be set aside for healing.

The treatment and healing process

When you have dental implants fitted, it will typically be under local anaesthetic although occasionally there might be a requirement for a general anaesthetic. Either way, you will feel little or no pain as the dentist makes holes in your jawbone to insert the dental implants.

Afterwards, it is important that you take the time to heal. You will need bed rest for the first day. It is recommended that you do not exercise or do anything too strenuous for the first three to four days. After that, it depends on how you feel and your dentist’s recommendations based on how extensive your surgery was.

It is important to keep the area clean with gentle brushing and salt water cleanses. You will also be on a restricted diet that will become less limited as time goes by. At Dental Implants Hampshire, we will give you the most accurate estimates of time frames so that you can feel prepared for your dental implant journey.
