Before Your Dental Implant Placement
Preparing for Dental Implants
It can be a bit nerve-wracking to think about what you should do before getting a dental implant. DaVinci Dentistry performs implant placement in Southlake, TX, and as a part of that, we guide patients through the entire process, start to finish, to ensure 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 do to prepare leading up to implant placement, including:
- Immediately establish a routine at-home oral hygiene routine if you haven’t already.
- Stock up on soft, cold food and soups (only heated to lukewarm temperatures) to eat throughout 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 should you choose general anesthesia.
- Begin taking antibiotics to prevent infection, if prescribed.
At DaVinci Dentistry, 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. Because Dr. Khal is a board-certified prosthodontist, you’ll find a high level of planning and precision with regard to your care.
