Searching For A Perfect Dentist

Finding a dentist may be challenging, especially when you’re new to a location. The hardest part about finding the perfect dentist is knowing how their payment structure is set up and if you like their bedside manner. Not finding a dentist isn’t and shouldn’t be in the question, so how do you find someone that works well with you and your family?

One of the best ways to go about finding a dentist is going through your insurance plan. This is a good first step because it will eliminate any dentist your plan does not cover. This is ideal, so you do not end up paying your full dental amount and you narrow down who you can pick.

Another good way to find a dentist is by asking coworkers or neighbors. If you are friendly with the people that are around you, you should use them as a resource. This will give you a few selections of people you could potentially trust and like, and then you have an easier path to narrowing the options down to fit your exact needs.

And finally, another option that works well for finding your perfect dental fit is setting up consultation appointments with those you have found through research. A consultation will allow you to get to know the dentist and their team, and see if the office offers everything you’re looking for and needing.

There are many ways to go about finding a new dentist, no matter what your circumstances are. If you need help, you may want to contact the dentist you were seeing in your old location, and see if they can offer you recommendations.

Schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience. Remember, it is necessary to keep on top of your oral health so other major issues do not arise. A dentist is there to help you stay on track with your oral hygiene, and give you any heads up they can on signs and symptoms they notice.

Dental implants have become extremely popular for patients, and become a routine procedure for dentists, because of the permanency of the treatment and the hygienic qualities. Dental implants can be used for a number of reasons, but whatever causes you to need the procedure, you will know after the treatment you will have a stable, beautiful smile.

Through the years, technology improves, and that is the same for the dental industry. The dental implant procedure over time has become efficient and beyond effective for majority of cases. Of course, like in any surgery, there are few and far between issues that rise up, but with the proper treatment and care post-surgery, you will never be afraid to show off your teeth.

These technology advancements also allow for the procedure to have faster healing and pain management.

A main concern that revolves around dental implants is the cost associated with the treatment. Like any dental treatment, cost will vary depending on the specific person and what their needs are. Depending on if you need one tooth, or many replaced and if your bone is sufficient or if grafting is necessary, the price will go up and down. If your gum health or jaw bone strength is compromised, eligibility for implant procedures will be determined by the doctor. If your dentist agrees that you are a suitable candidate for this type of treatment, that is when you can start preparing for the procedure and going through other consultations.

Dental implant surgery in the most basic from does not take long, and can be done at the same time as the extractions in some cases. Every patient is different, which means every procedure will depend on the person.

If you believe dental implants are the best option for you, schedule an appointment with your doctor. During this appointment, your doctor will be able to go over your treatment plan and discuss payment methods. From here, your dentist will schedule a consultation to go over how you would like your final teeth to look, and you will be on your way to a confident smile.

Have you ever thought about enhancing your smile? If you have then we at Water Oak Dental Group suggest reviewing our cosmetic dentistry options. Cosmetic dentistry allows you to improve your oral health while allowing you to feel confident with your smile and teeth. There are three major types of cosmetic dentistry procedures: teeth whitening, dental implants, and dental veneers.

Veneers – help resolve numerous issues such as have cracked or crooked teeth, damaged enamel, and even gaps between the teeth. The veneer is applied to the front of each tooth using a dental adhesive to hold it in place. To make sure your veneers look as natural as possible they are customized to fit your individual teeth. You look realistic because they are designed to resemble your teeth.

Teeth whitening – is one of the most common procedures in cosmetic dentistry and is also known as teeth bleaching. This is mainly performed when your teeth become stained from things like foods, beverages, or even smoking. A whitening treatment can be completed in as little as one visit to our office.

Before you undergo this procedure, your teeth should be thoroughly cleaned and removed of all plaque and tartar build-up, so the treatment has a stronger effect. The longevity of the treatment’s’ effects largely depends on your personal oral hygiene, but teeth typically stay whitened for 4-12 months.

Dental implants – can be a permanent solution to replacing lost teeth. This procedure is very safe with more than a 96% success rate. The procedure consists of a titanium screw being surgically placed into your jaw where the missing tooth is. This provides the support for the crown that will then be held in place. Implants are also designed specifically for you in order to match your other teeth, giving you a natural look.

Interested in any of these cosmetic dentistry options?  Schedule an appointment with Dr. David S. Krishingner at our offices in Brevard, North Carolina to learn more and find out what method or procedure works best for you.
