Dear [Patient’s Name],

I hope this letter finds you in good health. I’m writing to you as your surgeon and care provider regarding your upcoming treatment plan for implant surgery. It is paramount that we communicate clearly and effectively about each phase of the process, from what to expect during surgery to post-operative guidelines and long-term care.

Phase 1: Pre-Surgery Consultation

Before any surgical procedure, it is crucial that we conduct a thorough review of your medical history, oral health, and overall wellness. The findings from this consultation will guide us in tailoring the best possible treatment plan for your specific needs.

Phase 2: The Surgery

The surgery itself will involve the placement of Bicon ultrashort implants. These implants are exceptional due to their small size and unique locking taper design. They are specially created to effectively use available bone, even in areas with limited bone volume. This innovative design bypasses the need for further invasive procedures such as extensive grafting or sinus lift, making it a more comfortable and less risky choice for you.

Phase 3: Post-Operative Care

Following the operation, you’ll be given a list of guidelines to adhere to. These instructions include ways to protect the surgical site(s), maintain oral hygiene, manage swelling, pain and possible nausea, adhere to dietary restrictions, and more. These directions are intended to ensure your smooth recovery and to minimize potential complications.

Phase 4: Long-Term Maintenance

To ensure the longevity and success of your implants, it is vital to follow proper oral hygiene practices. These include daily brushing, flossing, using a Waterpik Water Flosser, and changing the bacteria content and environment around the implant regularly. Furthermore, you must visit your restorative dentist at least once a year for check-ups.

I understand that this information can feel overwhelming, but rest assured, our team will be with you every step of the way. We are committed to ensuring that your experience is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

In addition to the clinical benefits, the use of ultrashort Bicon implants is also economically efficient, eliminating the need for additional procedures or expensive grafting materials. This factor should hopefully alleviate any financial stress related to the treatment.

I look forward to meeting you at your next appointment and beginning this journey towards improved dental health and wellbeing. Please do not hesitate to contact my office should you have any questions or concerns.

Thank you for entrusting us with your care.
