You may be concerned that your procedure, or the healing process afterwards, will be painful. But while replacing your missing teeth can sound like an enormous undertaking, dental implant surgery is so high-tech, many patients are surprised to discover just how manageable it is – check out our testimonials for our previous patients’. We can assure you that your dental implant procedure will be pain-free – your local anaesthetic, or sedation if required, will ensure you are completely numb. Post-operative pain is normal and to be expected, though every patient is different. It can be controlled and managed with over-the-counter medication as it is only mild. Implant surgery is so precise that the healing process is usually very fast.
We understand why you might worry about what happens during your implant procedure – whether everything will go to plan, and what will happen to you while the dentist is working. We won’t begin treatment until you are very familiar with our practice environment and feel confident about our team, technology, skill and experience. At Fusion Dentistry, our implant dentist, Dr Guy McLellan, holds dual medical and dental qualifications. You will also be supported by a team of dedicated and experienced care nurses who will watch over you for the whole of your procedure.
Whether you had a painful or traumatic experience in childhood, or you’ve simply grown to dislike dental visits, we understand that it may have caused you fear and anxiety. Here at Fusion, we pride ourselves on helping patients have a new and positive experience of dentistry. We are with you every step of the way for support and encouragement. Come and speak to us about what happened before, and let us help put your mind at ease. During all aspects of your treatment, you will have access to a dedicated care practitioner, who will explain every aspect of the process so that you always feel reassured, informed and in control.
It is common to feel embarrassed that your natural teeth are unattractive, discoloured, broken, decaying or missing. Maybe someone has made a comment to you, or you feel that you can’t open your mouth to smile properly. Many people feel embarrassed when they first come to see us, but there’s really no need – we see teeth in all conditions and are used to helping people that have struggled for a long time before getting the courage to come see us. We want you to feel that you can smile freely and without embarrassment – and dental implants will change this for you. We are here to help you overcome the embarrassment.
It’s normal to feel anxious about any dental treatment, but it can help to know exactly what will happen so that you can prepare yourself. During the consultation process, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the Fusion Dentistry practice, visit the lab and meet the surgical team. We will also show you photographs and models of dental implants, to help gain a full understanding of the procedure and can be expected. We offer personal consultations and discovery days where you can come along and find out about Fusion Dentistry and dental implants. We aim to reassure you, every step of the way, so that by the time you have your procedure, you feel completely confident.
Perhaps you’re suffering from a dental phobia, or you’re not sure what’s causing your fear. As well as dental sedation, we can take a natural, holistic approach to treatment of dental anxiety and can refer you for Amatsu therapy. This is a physical therapy that helps balance the body and brings your body’s healing system into play to overcome physical responses to fear. Talk to us about this when you come for your initial visit.
