What Patients Should Expect the Day of Dental Implant Surgery

Posted by maryleboneimplant on March 20th, 2013

Are you thinking about getting dental implants to fill the void of a missing tooth or missing teeth? If so, you may be wondering about what you should expect the day of the surgery. Top dental clinics in the UK always want the best outcome for their patients, which is why many of them will discuss in full detail with you what you should expect on the day of the dental implant surgery. But for those who haven’t had the opportunity to talk with a dental implant surgeon, here are several things you should expect to happen on the day that you would have surgery.

Arrive Early the Day of the Surgery

You always want to arrive at least 20-30 minutes prior to the scheduled time for your surgery. This will help give the staff the proper amount of time to prepare you for surgery and to help you settle into the pre-surgery routine. Not only will this help you to not be as nervous as you might be if you otherwise would show up 5 minutes before surgery, it’ll also help the surgeon be better prepared as well.

Bring a Friend or Relative to drive you Home

You will probably be placed under general anesthesia and probably be given pain medication which could leave you unable to operate a vehicle. It’s recommended that you have a friend or relative to come along with you on the day you will be having surgery so that you will not have to try and drive home after the procedure. If you live alone you might also want to ask if they can spend the evening with you just to be on the safe side.

Follow Your Dentist Orders and Keep Follow-Up Appointments

After you have received your implants, make sure that you follow your surgeon’s recommendations. This should include information on how to care for and clean your teeth after the surgery. You may also receive prescriptions for medication to help deal with pain and other issues that could arise. You also want to make sure that everything goes well and that you have a beautiful smile for many years to come. This is why you will receive a follow-up appointment.
