The Perfect Start to Your Perfect Smile

5 Must-Ask Questions About Dental Implants

There’s little doubt that dental implants can improve your health and your smile, but for most of us, we don’t really know what questions to ask when considering them.
Ask your implant provider about these 5 questions to ensure you’re getting the best care possible, for the perfect start to your perfect smile.

Training to place implants can vary greatly. Everything from weekend courses and online tutorials, to rigorous classes and long-term continuums. While it’s difficult to judge the quality of these courses, we do know those committed to clinical success tend to align together. Ask about professional associations such as the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID). This group requires at least 300 hours of additional education specifically for implants.

While everyone has to start somewhere, they don’t need to start with you. This is a fairly complex (and safe) medical procedure and experience will go a long way. The biggest tip here is to ask how MANY implants they’ve placed, not simply how long they’ve been placing them. There are some docs that will place more implants in one month that some will in their entire career.

Now, don’t let this scare you. On occasion, the implant simply doesn’t take and the processes to correct the implant may vary. Failure rates vary widely and if it happens to you, you’ll want to understand the process. The doctor should put you at ease and let you know that failure does happen, and there’s no need to worry.

If you could drive any car in the world, what would it be? Now, if you could drive only one car for the rest of your life, what would it be? Amazing how your criteria changes, isn’t it? Everyone has a budget, and implants are certainly an investment. However, bargain shopping for medical procedures might not be the best long-term plan for the best return on investment. Ask what financial options are available. Everyone deserves the best care possible, and a smile that lasts a lifetime.

Always ask to see before and after cases with photos – ideally a case similar to yours. Most people want to feel good and they want to look good, too. Implants should accomplish both of these goals. You should be excited about your new smile, both aesthetically and functionally. If you’ve been living with an uncomfortable solution, your life is about to improve immensely.

This list should give you a good starting point for things to consider when thinking about dental implants. Call Dr. Scott today and put him to the test. It’s time to smile again!

“Having implants done is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. Dr. Scott and his staff are wonderful, and are so good about helping me keep my implants healthy.”

“Go for it! They are worth far more than I ever dreamed. I’d do them again in a second.”
