At Adams Dental, we think the first step to feeling comfortable having any treatment is to feel at ease with your dental practice. We focus on patient care and are sensitive to the needs of many different kinds of people.
The next thing you will need is plenty of information about any procedure you are interested in. When you make the decision to go ahead, you want to be sure you are making an informed choice and that there will be no surprises. This might include an outline timetable of treatments, any costs involved and may even involve taking a look at some equipment or understanding the hygiene routines used to keep you safe. This is especially true when you are having an extensive treatment like dental implants in North London at our clinic.
If it is dental implants you want, then the next thing that will happen is a detailed examination, consultation and history taking. This is to check your suitability for the procedure and to tailor the general advice you have already had to your specific situation.
Dental implants need to be inserted into the jaw bone and this is likely to be done under local anaesthetic or, more rarely, general anaesthetic. At this point, it is important to let the dentist know if you are feeling particularly nervous, or would like to consider some of our alternative sedation options to help you feel relaxed during treatment.
Once you have had dental implants fitted, you need to take time to heal and allow the implants to settle. We will give you advice on self-care and the kind of diet you will need to eat, at Adams Dental, North London. Dental implants need around eight weeks to become fully integrated into the jaw bone and ready for adding your choice of synthetic teeth. You can talk to us at any time during this process and we will make appointments with you to check on your progress.
We also continue to monitor you after you treatment to check that everything is going well and you are completely happy. We want to give you the support you need to enjoy your new teeth for many years to come.
