What To Expect During a Dental Implant Consultation

Dental implants are a popular solution for missing teeth, but they are not for everyone. An implant consultation is a dental examination to determine if a patient is suitable for dental implants. 

During the consultation, the dentist will assess the patient’s overall oral health and examine the condition of the gums and jaw bone. Based on this examination, the dentist can determine if the patient is a good candidate for dental implants.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Implant Consultation

Dental implants offer the following advantages over other types of tooth replacements:

  1. Closest restoration to natural teeth. They are anchored in the jawbone, so they function and feel like your natural teeth.
  2. Lasts for a long time with proper care. With regular brushing and flossing, plus regular visits to the dentist, they can last for decades.
  3. Better retention. Dental implants are surgically embedded in the jawbone, providing a more secure foundation for the replacement tooth.
  4. Prevents bone loss. Bone begins to deteriorate when you lose a tooth. An implant prevents this by providing stimulation to the jaw bone.
  5. Keep adjacent teeth stable. When a tooth is lost, the surrounding teeth can shift out of position, leading to spaces and bite problems. Dental implants help prevent this by keeping the surrounding teeth in place.
  6. Prevents facial sagging and premature ageing. Dental implants support the facial muscles of the cheeks and lips, maintaining the shape of the face.

Dental implants are considered to be a safe and effective treatment option. The success rate for dental implants is very high, and complications are relatively rare. In addition, the risks of dental implant surgery are similar to those of other dental procedures. With proper care, these risks and complications can be easily managed. 

If you are considering dental implants, be sure to consult with a qualified dentist to ensure that the procedure will be safe for you.

Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for missing teeth. However, as with any surgery, you should do a few things to prepare for the procedure.
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery. The anaesthesia can take a few hours to wear off, so it’s important to have someone else take you home.
  • Plan your food for the next few days. You’ll want to stick to a soft diet while your mouth heals.
  • Fix your schedule so you can rest for a few days. Recovery from surgery can take a few days, so it’s important to have some time set aside to rest and heal.
  • Ask your dentist about anaesthesia or sedation options. This can help you decide which pain management procedure should be used for the surgery.

    By taking these steps, you can help ensure a successful dental implant surgery.

The cost of dental implants can vary depending on several factors, including the type of implant, the number of implants needed, and the location of the dentist. On average, the cost of a dental implant starts from $5000 per tooth. 

While this may seem like a lot of money upfront, it is important to remember that dental implants are a lifetime investment. They can last for decades with proper care, making them a more cost-effective solution in the long run.
