Dental Implants are an important dental procedure to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Getting the best implants possible is important but can be tricky to find out. Here are some tips to get the best implants possible
Always feel free to ask a dentist about their experience with implants. While a dentist may be in practice for decades, implants are a specific skill, so it is important to know how experienced they are with them in particular. You should ask how long they have been doing implants, what the options are as far as size and placement, how many have they placed, etc. A dentist is always willing to answer these questions, and if not, it could be a red flag.
Those that are skilled can ensure that all implant surgeries are minimally invasive. If your dentist says they do not offer minimally invasive surgery, keep looking for a dental implant dentist.
Dental Implants are a specialty, and like all specialties are unique for each patient. The customization of a dental implant should always be done by one office. Changing your dentist halfway through procedures can be a very bad idea.
If you are told that it can take weeks or months to complete the process with your new tooth attached to the implant (and no temporary tooth placement is available), look for another option. Nobody should ever have to walk around with a metal implant sticking out of their gums.
The best dentists care about their patients more than the finances. If there is no option for a payment plan or other options, you may want to keep looking.
