Dental Implant Procedure FAQ's

Dental implants are a revolutionary tooth replacement option offering a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for missing teeth. Here at Smile Artistry Chino, we understand you might have questions about the procedure. Let's explore some frequently asked questions:

How can I ease my fears about dental care without medication?

When you visit our Chino dental center, we can discuss ways that you can prevent experiencing anxiety while receiving dental care. In addition to the medication that we can provide, you can try relaxing by drinking a glass of tea. There are several natural varieties that you can purchase at the health foods store that will relax and calm you. At times, this can be enough to put you into a naturally relaxed state. Some patients also find that they benefit from meditation and acupuncture.

How can I prepare for my dentist appointment?

Another easy way to help calm your fears is to visit our dental office Chino and meet us without having actual dental work performed. Taking the time to tour our office, where you can sit in the dentist chair and have a conversation, will allow you to become familiar with our staff and office environment. This way when you do have your teeth cleaned, and dental work performed; you are doing so in an atmosphere that you feel comfortable in with procedures being completed by friendly and familiar faces. During your consultation, we can also discuss what you can expect from a teeth cleaning or a specific procedure. This will help you to prepare mentally for how long it will take, what dental tools will be used, what you could feel during the process and what the recovery period will be, if any. At Smile Artistry Chino Valley, we have found that the more informed our patients are the more comfortable and relaxed they feel. This one appointment can help to alleviate the dental anxiety that you are experiencing.

Sedation Dentistry Can Reduce Your Dental Anxiety

In our dental office, we practice sedation dentistry that can be used to reduce and prevent dental anxiety. Here are some of the questions we are regularly asked about sedation.

Will I be asleep when sedated?

Typically not. Sleep dentistry is usually reserved for oral surgery and lengthy procedures. Sedation dentistry will help you relax and can make you drowsy, so some patients do nod off, but you are technically not put to sleep.

How can I prepare for the dental implant procedure?

A thorough consultation is the first step. We'll discuss your medical history, perform a dental examination, and take X-rays to assess your jawbone health and suitability for implants.

Pre-operative instructions will also be provided, which may include:

  • Fasting for a specific timeframe before surgery (depending on the chosen sedation method).
  • Arranging transportation to and from your appointment, as you won't be able to drive yourself after sedation.
  • Stopping certain medications that could interfere with clotting.
  • Maintaining good oral hygiene by brushing and flossing regularly.

Can sedation dentistry help me?

Yes, absolutely! Sedation dentistry is a great option for patients experiencing dental anxiety. We offer various sedation methods to keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout the implant procedure.

Are there negative side effects of sedation dentistry?

Most side effects of sedation dentistry are mild and temporary. These can include drowsiness, dizziness, or slight nausea. In rare cases, some patients might experience headaches or a metallic taste in their mouth. Our team will carefully monitor you after the procedure and ensure these effects subside before you leave.

How do I know if dental implants are right for me?

Dental implants are a versatile solution for many patients with missing teeth. During your consultation, Dr. Vijaya Cherukuri will assess your individual needs and jawbone health to determine if implants are the best option for you. Factors like gum health and underlying medical conditions may also be considered.

How do I take care of my dental implants?

Maintaining good oral hygiene is crucial for the long-term success of your dental implants. This includes brushing twice daily, flossing regularly, and attending regular dental checkups and cleanings. We'll provide specific instructions on caring for your implants and surrounding tissues.

What happens during the implant procedure?

The dental implant procedure typically involves several stages. In some cases, bone grafting may be needed to strengthen the jawbone before implant placement. The implant itself is a small titanium screw surgically inserted into the jawbone. Over time, the bone fuses with the implant creating a strong foundation for the replacement tooth (crown). The crown is then attached to the implant in a later appointment, restoring both aesthetics and functionality.
