It can be intimidating to consider just what you should do before receiving a dental implant. In Southlake, Texas, DaVinci Dentistry performs implant placement, and as a part of that, we guide patients through the entire process, start to finish, so there are no surprises along the way.
Once we have conducted our exam, evaluated your health history, taken necessary X-rays and determined that you are indeed a candidate for a dental implant, we’ll draft a treatment plan that will be shared with you before any work begins.
A member of our team will also outline some of the things you’ll want to check off your list leading up to implant placement, including:
- Immediately establish a home oral hygiene routine if you haven’t already.
- Stock up on soft, cold food and soups (heated to lukewarm temperatures) to last through your healing period.
- Discuss with us which type of anesthesia will be best for you (sedation, local anesthesia or general anesthesia), and arrange for transportation home if you choose general anesthesia.
- Begin taking antibiotics to prevent infection, if they were prescribed.
At DaVinci Dentistry in Southlake, we want every stage of your dental implant placement to be predictable and comfortable, so we’ll spend time with you answering your questions and providing tips for how to achieve the most successful outcomes for your implant. Since Dr. Khal is a board-certified prosthodontist, one of the only ones in the Mid-Cities area, you’ll find a high level of planning and precision with regard to your care.
