How Patients Must Prepare Themselves Before A Dental Implant?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

When you have missing, chipped, broken or damaged teeth, it’s imperative that you opt for a dental implant treatment under the supervision of a highly experienced periodontist. This is not as easy as it sounds because a lot of aspects such as the condition of your teeth, overall oral health, the number of teeth damaged, and the condition of the jawbone, need to be considered. To cut the long story short, a patient has to prepare accordingly to get the most out of the treatment.

In some cases, when there is a complication, one has to consult two doctors – one who will examine the condition of the mouth, face and jaw – and the dentist who specializes with the structures supporting the natural whites. In this article, we are going to walk readers through the preparations they have to take before the implant.

In-Office Investigations

There are some in-office examinations or tests that must be performed prior to the treatment. The tests may vary from one patient to the other. These investigations should be carried out very carefully to avoid any kind of risks during the treatment. So, let’s have a look what these tests are:

Examination of a Patient’s Mouth

An experienced doctor will analyze the condition of your gum and biting to ascertain the size and site of the implant. This test will help your doctor to place the insertion safely.

Blood Test

Ailments such as hypertension and diabetes may prove risky during the surgery. Therefore, diseases such as these including infections should be treated and cured before the dental surgery.

CT Examination

This is the cross-sectional investigation of the body via images and with the help of a computer and the x-ray. The observations should be recorded. This examination is beneficial because it verifies the size, form and location of each of the organs of the human body.

X-Ray

In order to make the procedure successful, adequate bone thickness and height are the fundamental requirements. This is where the importance of an x-ray examination comes into play through which both tooth shape and bone volume are confirmed.

Keep Your Doctor Informed

Besides the above tests, a patient must also inform the dentist about any medical conditions, illness, or medicines he or she is taking. As far as medicines are concerned, these include prescription drugs as well as over-the-counter preparations and supplements. Your dentist may recommend some antibiotics before the surgery to avert any kind of infection.

Treatment and Cure of Gum Disease

One primary cause of gum disease is bacteria formation and it may result in the disintegration of the bone supporting your teeth. If the implant is performed without curing the gum ailment, the bone round where the insertion is placed would get infected easily. Such infections may prove detrimental and would result in the loss of the restorations as well as your natural tooth.

Correcting Biting

The clenching or gritting of teeth, i.e. bruxism may create concerns with the procedure. To avoid such complications, it’s imperative that clenching and biting is controlled and rectified before the treatment.

Bone Grafting

If a patient has less bone thickness or height at the site of the insertion, bone grafting or augmentation should be done before the implant.

Changes in Lifestyle

Those who are addicted to drinking or smoking must avoid such habits for the success of the surgery. That’s because too much smoking or drinking has an adverse impact on the bonding capacity between the bone and the implant body.

So, if you are considering a dental implant treatment in the future, make sure you get the necessary tests done and have your gums checked.
