Undergoing Dental Implant Surgery
It’s fair to say that surgery can be an intimidating process for most people particularly when it comes to dental implants. In Richmond for example, Sheen Dental are very aware of nervous patients and as a result seek to use the latest technologies and methods to reassure the patient that the process is actually relatively pain free. However there are also other things that the patient can do them to stay as calm and relaxed as possible. Here are some ways in which they can do this.
Get as much information as possible about the process
They say that knowledge is power and certainly in this case, having a full understanding of the dental implant process and how it will help you in the long run is a particularly good idea. An experienced dental surgeon will give you a thorough consultation prior to the surgery during which you can ask questions and receive information about the surgery and what happens afterwards. Once you have a better idea of the actions the surgeon needs to take, you’ll find that you are better prepared and hopefully more relaxed.
Pain free process
Technologies have come on in leaps and bounds over the last decade or so and clinics that perform dental implant surgery are very close to performing totally pain-free surgery. Using techniques such as conscious sedation, where a patient is sedate but fully awake are key to this as the patient can maintain an alert but pain free state. In addition the use of numbing gels and dental wands can administer virtually pain-free injections, right to the places that need it. All of this means that pain (if any) will be very limited. For a nervous or anxious patient, knowing that the process isn’t going to hurt should give them some peace-of-mind.
Impact on your life
Undergoing dental implant surgery will have a positive impact on your life and should be a permanent solution to your missing teeth insecurities. Not only will the surgical process restore your smile, but it will also give you back your self confidence. In fact it’s fair to say that when you undertake surgery for dental implants in Richmond or anywhere else in the country, it’s going to be life changing. Again if you can change the way you think about surgery, from one of nervousness and anxiety to positivity that you’ll feel much better in yourself, then this will help you prior to undergoing the process.
