Do you have missing teeth? If you do, then deciding on having dental implants is one of the most important decisions you can make. The implants work by replacing the function of the lost tooth roots to prevent (or stop) jawbone deterioration. These implants are embedded directly into the jawbone and left to integrate with the rest of the jawbone tissue. After a healing period is completed, the implants are uncovered, and are then connected to the corresponding teeth replacements such as dental crowns or a dental bridge. The implant treatment restores the smile’s proper function and normal appearance.
Your initial dental implant consultation aims to make you more familiar with your London Dental Studio dentist, as well as with the implant treatment. You will be encouraged to ask questions to make things clearer with regards to the implant placement, and to boost your confidence as well as peace of mind as far as the treatment is concerned. As you feel more comfortable with your dentist, you will find it easier to converse about the implant treatment and your goals for the said procedure.
The initial consultation will also involve the assessment of your dental condition, with the dentist giving you all the available treatment options so that you can make the most informed decision. The steps of the implant treatment will also be discussed to give you an idea of what to expect. Payment option information will also be given to give you a chance to prepare for your dental implants placement.
