Prior to implant treatment, you should allow your body to be in the best health possible to allow for the best healing. You may want to ask your general medical practitioner if there are any contraindications to having implant therapy.
You should stop smoking at leat 6 months prior to having any implants placed having plenty of water.
Please be mindful of the below factors:
If you are taking aspirin, you should check with your physician that it is suitable to stop the recommended dose one week before the implant placement.
Make sure you have taken the prescribed antibiotics before arriving at the dental practice and that you complete the course of medication in the period afterwards.
Research has shown that regular smokers lack Vitamin C. This deficiency interferes with all healing processes.
Smokers are strongly advised to take 1,500mg of Vitamin C a day for one month prior to the operation and continue for as long as possible afterwards for its general health benefit. However, if at all possible you should give very serious consideration to giving up smoking altogether, or discuss with your dentist a suitable period of cessation pre- and post-operatively for the key surgical stages.
All patients can help the process of healing by taking 1,200 international units (IU) of Vitamin E, and 60 milligrams of beta carotin each day starting three weeks before the operation.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
