Lots of people consider going for dental implants in Ealing but are put off by the thought of the procedure. Here at Ikon Dental Suite, we believe that fear of treatment shouldn’t put you off dental implants or leave you with a gappy smile.
Everyone deserves to smile with a full set of teeth. Whether you have taken a knock to the teeth, or the tooth has fallen or been extracted because of gum disease, it isn’t too late to restore your smile.
Don’t fear the drill
The main question on people’s lips when they think about dental implants in Ealing is, ‘does it hurt?’. This a question we can’t really answer, because everyone’s pain thresholds and individual dental situations vary. However, we can assure you that you will be given enough local anaesthetic to numb the pain during the procedure.
If you suffer from dental phobia, we will do our best to answer all your questions and listen to your concerns, to help you feel more at ease about treatment. It may also be a good idea to speak to others who have had treatment, so that you can see the benefits and get a better idea of what’s involved.
Look on the bright side
While the drill can seem scary, dental implants are often worth it. Dental implants provide a stable foundation for the new tooth. If you keep good oral hygiene, they can last upwards of 25 years. What’s more, dental implants give you back a beautiful smile and boost your confidence in your appearance.
Looking after your new tooth
Once you have had dental implants in Ealing, they are pretty easy to look after. It may take a while for the anaesthetic to wear off, during which time its best to avoid hot food and drink. It’s also a good idea to mainly stick to eating liquid and then soft foods for some time after surgery. If you experience any pain after treatment, this can be treated with over-the-counter painkillers.
To maintain good oral hygiene, you must brush and floss regularly as you would your natural teeth. We’ll also arrange check-ups to ensure that everything is looking as it should.
