How To Find A Dental Implant Dentist

If you’re considering a dental implant in Richmond then it’s important to make the right choice of dentist. There are many professionals who place dental implants. Some dentists may have undergone a short training course while others may have taken a different path and hold a Diploma or Masters. While for many people cost and procedure times may be factors for choosing the dentist to replace their missing teeth, it really does pay to do your research thoroughly and take the time to choose a well-qualified and experienced dental implant dentist and restoration method which best meets your needs and helps you achieve your long-term goals of smiling, laughing, talking, and eating with confidence.

That said, how do you go about choosing the right implant dentist to restore your missing teeth?

Similar to undergoing major surgery where you’d likely ask all manner of questions about the surgery itself, any risks involved, and the likely outcome, then there are also plenty of questions you should ask any dental implant dentist before making your choice. Let’s take a look at some of them:

  • What are the options for restoring my missing teeth?

  • How many dental implants have you placed?

  • What has been your success rate?

  • What education and training have you undertaken in connection with dental implants?

  • What treatment and type of replacement teeth or appliance would you recommend for me, and why?

  • What stages are involved in the treatment and where and who performs the procedure?

  • What should I expect during the entire process when it comes to pain, recovery times, and being able to eat?

  • Will I be without teeth for any great length of time?What sort of anaesthetic do you use?

  • Are there any risks involved in the treatment you’re recommending for me, and if so what are they?

  • What are the benefits of the treatment?

  • Can you show me and before and after pictures of patients you have treated?

Some people and even dental professionals use the terms “dentures” and “bridges” in different ways or generically. Some dentures and bridges are supported by dental implants and some are not. The end result when comparing implant and non-implant dentures and bridges differs in terms of fit, function, appearance, feel and after care as well as in terms of longevity. Be sure to clarify which type of denture or bridge is being recommended for you, whether it will be secured to your teeth or jawbone, and whether it will be removable or not.
