It is critical that you regularly see a hygienist every 3 months. This is so that we can keep the oral condition and the gums around the implants healthy. Otherwise you can get gum infection around the implant called Peri-Implantitis or Peri-Implant Mucositis, that can lead to failure of the treatment. Hence, this will be planned into your oral care maintenance program.
Smoking is often an contraindication and can affect the longevity of the implant treatment. Hence it is recommended that you do not smoke during or after the treatment.
Correct treatment planning and selection of the appropriate implant. This is a factor to seriously consider since the treatment will not last long if you do not have the correct type of implant that suits your situation. Fortunately, we have highly skilled clinicians that have a huge amount of experience in successful surgical treatments.
Regular examination appointments are necessary with the implantologist to ensure that everything is going according to plan. This reduces the risks of any harmful effects that may be undetected if you do not attend regularly.
Implants although complex in nature are a fantastic way of getting your smile and function back. At Hockerill Dental in Hertfordshire, we ensure strict processes to ensure safety, longevity and great results.
