Choosing the Right Dentist for your Dental Implant needs.

old_people_smile

In the first part of this 2 part series we explored some important considerations when choosing a dentist that is right for you and your Dental Implant Needs. Choosing the right dentist to place and restore your dental implants can mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems

The Right Training.

When choosing a dentist for your dental implant needs there are many things to consider.  The right training is one of them.  It is important to determine if the dentist has had additional training in restoring dental implants as well as understanding the surgical techniques necessary for success.  It takes time and experience to become proficient in planning and restoring dental implants.  A thorough understanding of the different implants systems available and their proper use in each situation is necessary to achieve the highest level of success.

The Right Credentials.

One way to determine the experience level of the dentist is whether they have presented seminars or lectured on treatment with dental implants.  Additionally, have they published articles in scientific journals?   The ability to lecture and publish on dental implant treatment is an indication of the level of expertise the dentist has achieved and an expression of the depth of knowledge and experience the dentist possesses.

The Right Results.

Having the right training, possessing the right credentials and having the knowledge and experience treating patients with dental implants will result in many successful outcomes.  An experienced implant dentist should be able to show you before and after results of dental implant cases they completed.   With examples of before and after cases they will be able to show you results typical for situations like yours.

Other good sources.

One of the best recourses to determine if you have chosen the right dentist for your implant needs is to consult with a surgical specialist.  A specialist like a Periodontist or Oral Surgeon who places dental implants for many different dentists is a great resource.  They have the ability to work with multiple dentists and often know who is the best dentist for your situation and to restore your dental implants.  It is this “team approach” that allows for long term success.

Choosing the Right Dentist for your Dental Implant needs.

In this 2 part series we will explore some important considerations when choosing a dentist that is right for you and your Dental Implant Needs.

Choosing the right dentist to place and restore your dental implants is an important decision.  It can mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems.  Decisions about your dental health should be taken very seriously.  In today’s world we are faced with many choices.  Should you choose a dentist by the advertisements you see on TV or in your local newspaper?  Some of these can be very convincing.  Making a decision as serious as this requires research into these “Implant Centers”.   It may not be as clear a choice, as it seems.  Be sure to carefully investigate the Implant Center or Dentist you choose to determine if it is the right choice for you.

One Size Does Not Fit All.

When choosing the right implant dentist for your needs “one size does not fit all”.  Implant dentistry has become big business with chains popping up nationwide.  This type of facility might be fine for eyeglasses or clothing chains but may not be right for your dental implant needs.  One-size implant systems and one type of implant treatment may not be what are best for you.  Each person is unique and so is their situation when it comes to implant dentistry.   Not everyone needs all their teeth removed and replaced with an implant denture such as “All on 4” or “Teeth in a Day”.  This may be right for you but perhaps there are other options that need to be considered.

One “size” or “type” of dental implant also does not work best in every situation.  You wouldn’t expect to use the same implant size and type to replace a back tooth as you would a front tooth?  The type of bone and the position in the mouth need to be carefully considered when choosing the right implant for the situation.  Also, the techniques required to beautifully blend an implant tooth in your smile with your natural teeth is much more challenging than replacing a back tooth.  This type of treatment requires additional skills and knowledge of implant dentistry.

You get what you pay for.

When choosing the right implant dentist for your needs “you get what you pay for”.  You have seen the advertisements on TV offering dental implants at a cost that just seems to good to be true.  Well in dentistry, just like everything else in life, if it sounds to good to be true it usually is.  This is especially true when considering your dental health.  All dental implants are not created equal.  Dental implant manufacturing companies have grown tremendously over the last few years.  The goal being to provide dental implants based on cost rather than quality.  That could mean cheaper materials being used or manufacturing techniques that are not as strictly regulated for quality.  This could mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems.

The right choice.

When choosing a dentist for your dental implant needs there are many things to consider.   In the second part of this series we will explore how to make the right choice when it come to your dental health and dental implant needs..

In the third part of this three part series we will discuss options to replace your teeth with dental implants if all your teeth are missing or have to be removed.  It also is a great option to replace or secure dentures.

The popularity of dental implants has increased in recent years.  This is due to their ability to restore oral health but also provide a beautiful natural smile that is permanent.   Getting to know what implant procedure is right for you can change and improve your life.

Missing all teeth: Ideal for replacement of Dentures

The loss of all your teeth can be a life changing event.  Replacement of missing teeth is critical to maintain your overall health and nutrition as well as maintaining a youthful appearance and beautiful smile.  The loss of your teeth doesn’t mean the loss of your smile or the ability to chew and enjoy food. There are many options available to replace missing teeth. A solution growing in popularity is an option called “All-On-4”.  You may also have heard about this option called “Teeth in a Day”.  Simply put, this is an option designed to permanently replace all of your teeth.  Utilizing eight total implants for replacement of both the upper and lower arch of teeth.  In some situations more implants may be needed but 4 per arch is the minimal number required to support the teeth.  It also may be an economical way to replace all the teeth when the use of more implants will  result in higher cost.

Dental implants have the highest success rate of any tooth-replacement option and a successful history spanning decades, making them the best long-term solution to replace missing teeth.  Implants can last the rest of your life when properly cared for.   This is what makes them such a good value.

In the second part of this three part series we will discuss options to replace multiple missing teeth with dental implants.

The popularity of dental implants has increased in recent years.  This is due to their ability to restore oral health but also provide a beautiful natural smile that is permanent.   Getting to know what implant procedure is right for you can change and improve your life.

Multiple teeth

Similar to the loss of one tooth, multiple teeth can be lost due to accident, decay or periodontal disease.  Multiple tooth replacement with dental implants is an ideal way to restore dental health.  Treatment with multiple implants is a option for those in the beginning stages of  tooth loss.  As we age we face the loss of multiple teeth even with good dental care.  Multiple missing teeth can be detrimental to your health as well as how you look and feel about yourself.  Replacing missing teeth is crucial to maintaining the rest of your oral health and slowing the process of losing additional teeth.  Fortunately there are many options available to replace multiple missing teeth.  Treatment may be as simple as placing implants in the site of  some of the missing teeth and placing a permanent bridge that is cemented to the implants.  This type of treatment works well for replacing as few as three teeth or replacing all the teeth.  It provides a predictable long term result giving you the look and feel of natural teeth and a beautiful smile.

Dental implants have the highest success rate of any tooth-replacement option and a successful history spanning decades, making them the best long-term solution to replace missing teeth.  Implants can last the rest of your life when properly cared for.   This is what makes them such a good value.

In the first part of this three part series we will discuss options to replace a single missing tooth with a dental implant.

The popularity of dental implants has increased in recent years.  This is due to their ability to restore oral health but also provide a beautiful natural smile that is permanent.  Dental implants technology is not new.  Dental implants have been a predictable successful option for the replacement of teeth for more than two decades.  With their arrival came the new hope for those with missing teeth.  What has changes is the techniques and advancement in procedures improving efficiency, comfort and esthetics.  Now implants teeth can be indistinguishable from natural teeth.  What used to take multiple appointments and months of treatment now can be accomplished in a fewer and shorter appointments.  Getting to know what implant procedure is right for you can change and improve your life.

Single tooth

The loss of a single tooth due to an accident, decay or periodontal disease can be upsetting and even devastating if it is a front tooth effecting your smile.  The good news is one tooth can be easily replaced using a dental implant. To replace a single tooth, a dental implant is placed into the site where the tooth is missing, replacing the root of the tooth. A small post called an abutment is then attached to the implant.  The replacement tooth, usually a crown, is then cemented over the abutment post.  The new tooth will look, feel and function just like your natural tooth.

Dental implants have the highest success rate of any tooth-replacement option and a successful history spanning decades, making them the best long-term solution to replace missing teeth.  Implants can last the rest of your life when properly cared for.   This is what makes them such a good value.
