Dental implants are an excellent choice for replacing missing teeth but, like any surgical procedure, are not to be undertaken without due consideration. After all, you are making a big investment in your health, well-being and appearance. And dental implants are a long-term commitment. You might, as with all surgery, be feeling a little nervous and have lots of questions. The Same Day Teeth Team in Coventry will be happy to answer all your questions, allay your fears and put your mind at rest before you say, ready, steady, go.
Before you make your decision, you need to ask your dentist lots of questions but when your nervous one can sometimes forget. So here are some ready made questions, add your own and print off this list and you will have it ready to remind you when at your appointment.
- How long have you been fitting implants in?
- Approximately, how many implants have you undertaken?
- What are your success rates?
- Do you have patient testimonials?
- Are your dental implants guaranteed?
- What is covered under guarantee?
- What happens if the implant doesn’t take?
- How many surgeries are required?
- Will I have an anesthetic?
The answers will give you a good idea of the dentist’s expertise and delving deeper, will be more reassuring.
- How will I know if I’m eligible for dental implants? (here is a test we have devised for you, to get an idea)
- How much will they cost?
- How can I, as a patient, ensure my dental implants will last?
- What is the cost of caring for my implants?
- I am a smoker. Am I still a good candidate for dental implants?
And just to be clear:
- How long does the procedure take?
- How many stages are involved?
- Does it hurt?
- How long will it take to recover from surgery?
- Will I be able to eat normally after the surgery?
- I’m a nervous patient. Can you do anything to help?
