Dental implant surgery is a big treatment for you and your oral health. This is why it’s important to do all you can to prepare for your appointment so you can improve your chances of success. To help you prepare for your dental implant treatment in Gilbert, Arizona, our Higley Dental Care dental team encourages you to do the following things:

-Make sure you tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, even over-the-counter and prescription drugs and supplements. It’s also important to tell Dr. Zack Nimri about and medical conditions you might have, especially because if you have a certain heart condition or if you have orthopedic implants, he will prescribe antibiotics before surgery to prevent infection.

-Usually, your dental professional will use a type of anesthetic to help control the pain during the treatment. Talk to Dr. Zack Nimri and see which anesthetic is right for you. Generally, your options include local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia.

-Your dental team will give you specific instructions on what to eat and drink before surgery. Make sure you follow those instructions because they will help with the way your body deals with the anesthetic.

-If you decide to use a strong anesthetic during your surgery, it’s recommended to ask someone to drive you home after the treatment. It won’t be safe for you to drive home alone.
