If you find going to the dentist pretty scary at the best of times, you may laugh a hollow laugh at the idea of having dental implants fitted. After all, this treatment absolutely requires the use of the drill and takes a while to carry out. But don’t write off having dental implants in North London because if you come to Adams Dental, you will be in safe hands.
We understand just how frightening it can be to go to the dentist, lie back in a pretty vulnerable position and give up all control. Actually, suffering from dental phobia is more common than you think. It shouldn’t be a barrier to having life-changing treatments though. And in North London, dental implants really can change lives for the better.
If you have already lost a few teeth, you will have noticed that it’s getting harder to eat and also to speak clearly. That will only get worse with each tooth you lose.
However, getting dental implants in North London can give you back all your food choices, making speaking clearly easy again and save you from any embarrassing wobbles that you may experience with dentures. Dental implants mimic Nature by giving you roots as well as teeth and it is the roots, which are firmly embedded into the jawbone, that make all the difference. However, in order to get back your life, you will have to go through implant surgery and the drill.
But don’t worry because at Adams Dental, we are happy to supply you with sedation if you are a nervous patient. Sedation comes in two forms: intravenous or oral.
This is a tablet that you take about an hour before surgery. It will make you very relaxed and drowsy, but you will still able to respond if we need to talk to you.
This goes straight into your bloodstream, usually via the back of your hand. It is pretty instant in its effects and will make you very drowsy. You may even sleep through your treatment, but you can be roused if needs be.
