Common Questions Patients Have Before a Procedure
Teeth Tomorrow Staten Island is dedicated to serving patients who are seeking a natural healthy-looking smile, compassionate care, and unparalleled quality. We understand that you may have questions while preparing for your Teeth Tomorrow® procedure. Our staff are here to help. Below are some commonly asked questions, but please do not hesitate to contact us at 718-705-4434 if you have any other questions or concerns.
Can I Travel During My Teeth Tomorrow® Treatment?
The healing process that occurs as part of your Teeth Tomorrow®treatment requires special attention. During this time, your implants are becoming a part of your mouth through a process called ‘osseointegration’ — the connection between your jaw and each implant. So while you can travel, it’s important to let us know when you’ll be away, follow all of your doctor’s instructions, and schedule a follow-up office visit for when you return.
Will I Be Sedated During My Teeth Tomorrow® Treatment?
Sedation may be recommended for certain procedures during your Teeth Tomorrow® treatment, and is not required for others. Your specific treatment will be determined by your unique needs and requirements and the recommendation of your Teeth Tomorrow® advanced implant dentist.
What Do I Have to Do to Care For My Teeth Tomorrow® Dental Implant Bridge?
Your Teeth Tomorrow® dental bridge is designed to be a permanent part of a healthy mouth. Since you don’t take it out, you brush it just like you would clean normal teeth. You see your dental hygienist on a regular schedule, but your Prettau® Zirconia bridge does not attract plaque or food particles, so there’s no need to floss.
