You’ve been there. You purchased a product or service on perceived value.
Then it happened! A problem arose.
Now, where’s the support?
No doubt there’s significant value accompanying dental implant treatment. Even better – your support is built in.
What do I mean?
Deciding to have oral surgery is a major step. And you should expect that post-operative protocol is essential to the lifetime value of your dental implant.
Hold that thought on “lifetime value.” We’ll return to that in a moment.
The follow-up factor
Many factors affect the success of your dental implant. Including…
• Preliminary (in our case, free) consultation
• Bone and gum tissue health
• Treatment expertise
• Bone adaptation after placement (osseointegration).
And the all-important topic of the moment…
• Follow-up appointments.
Healing begins the moment the implant is placed. But it is sustained during the monitoring phase.
Don’t miss it!
Why? Because the early stages, following implant placement, is where problems can be spotted, treated, and eliminated.
Typically, expect your first follow-up to be within three to four weeks of your oral surgery. This allows us eyes-on opportunity to check the progress of your healing.
And this is vital to the success of your implant.
The stability of your dental implant relies on how it integrates with your jawbone. Your bone tissue must bond, in a timely way, with the titanium post (your implant).
This process (osseointegration) can require several months. During that time, it’s important that you’re consistent with your scheduled follow-up appointments.
It’s great to feel good and we want to keep it that way.
We hope and plan to provide you a worry-free implant treatment. And frankly, any issues that arise makes it all the more important to be monitored via regular follow-up.
Count on your follow-up appointment frequency to be reduced as time goes by. Within an appropriate amount of months it won’t be necessary.
A shift in your priorities
This where lifetime value comes into view. It’s vital to treat each dental procedure as an essential element of your healthy life plan.
Your new dental implant is no doubt part of that. And even though it’s not vulnerable to decay (as a natural tooth is) the bone and gum tissue it’s placed within is.
Lifetime value for your dental care relies on routine check-ups, dental exams, and teeth cleanings. These regularly scheduled appointments provide consistent monitoring of your overall oral health.
Teeth are for life. And your dental implants are no exception.
Schedule a consultation to determine how implant treatment can replace your missing teeth. And continue to maintain the health of your teeth and gums by scheduling your next dental exam and teeth cleaning.
