10 Questions to Ask Before Having Oral Implant.

Here are 10 questions everyone should ask their dental implant dentist before having Implants.

Are dental implants the best option for me?
Before you even start asking about details, you’ll need to know if implants are the best option for you. Age, tooth and bone structure, oral hygiene and whether you smoke are just a few of the things your dentist will need to know before giving you a recommendation.
How much experience do you have with dental implants?
Since dental implants are such a huge decision, it’s helpful to know how much experience your dentist has with dental implants. You can ask about  training, years working with dental implants, success rate and even the specific number of dental implants they’ve performed.

How advanced is your equipment?
The more advanced the technology at your dental office, the more precise your dentist will be able to complete your dental implant procedure. From 3D X-rays to innovative dental implants like All-on-4, advanced equipment can give you higher-quality service.

Will you be performing all the dental implant procedures?
Some dentists only perform surgeries. Others only place the implant. And others may only restore the implant. It’s important to know if your dentist can do all parts of the process in their office, or if you’ll need to visit more than one location.

How many times will I need to visit the dental office?
It’s important to know how much time you’ll need to invest for your dental implants. Some dental implant procedures, like All-on-4 and Teeth-in-an-Hour, take less than one day.  Traditional dental implants can take three to six months.

Will I be sedated during the procedure?
One of the biggest fears many people have about the dentist is feeling pain during a procedure. You can opt for sedation during your dental implant procedure. In this option, you awake to no memory of the procedure.
How long will my dental implants last?
Dental implants aren’t called “Permanent Teeth to Last a Lifetime” for nothing. Most last forever (when they are properly cared for), but it’s important to get confirmation from your dentist.

What brand of implants do you use?
There are many implant systems available for practitioners to use. It is very important to use only implants from the most reputable implant companies with a consistent, historically proven track record of successful osseointegration and final results that you can depend on.

How much continuing education experience do you have with dental implants?
A dentist that actively pursues continuing education in implants is passionate about implants and committed to learning the latest techniques and refining and updating their treatment skills to provide excellence in implant care.

 Are there any risks involved with implant placement?
An implant placement is a minor operation. Complications, such as injury to nerves and blood vessels, are always possible during implant placement. However, this is most unlikely with the current methods of diagnostics and planning. The risks involved with implant placement are normally no greater than those in removal of a wisdom tooth.
