Are you about to improve your oral health by replacing your missing tooth with a dental implant? If so, then it’s important to prepare for your treatment. If you prepare for the surgery, there is a high chance you’ll feel more comfortable in the dental chair and you’ll also increase your chances of treatment success. To prepare for your dental implant surgery in Kenmore, Washington, our Kenmore Dental dental team encourages you to do the following things:
-Consider your anesthesia options. Generally, your options include local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. It’s best to talk to your dental professional and discuss which option is best for you.
-If you decide to use a strong anesthetic during your surgery, it’s recommended to ask someone to drive you home after the treatment. It won’t be safe for you to drive home alone.
-Your dental team will give you specific instructions on what to eat and drink before surgery. Make sure you follow those instructions.
-Tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, even over-the-counter and prescription drugs and supplements. It’s also important to tell Dr. Michael J. Conway about any medical conditions you might have, especially because if you have a certain heart condition or if you have orthopedic implants, he will prescribe antibiotics before surgery to prevent infection.
Preparing for your appointment will help you in more ways than you might realize. So, if you have any questions or if you need help with any of the recommended tips, please remember that you can always call 425-485-0588 and talk to a member of our team.
