How to Find the Right Dentist for Your Dental Implants

September 8th, 2020 Dental Implants 0 comments on “How to Find the Right Dentist for Your Dental Implants”

If you have lost or had teeth removed due to decay, disease, or injury, there is one tooth replacement option in Brevard, NC that provides permanent benefits: dental implants. These artificial teeth are made from titanium and restored with life-like porcelain crowns, bridges, or full arches of teeth. Dental implants work just like natural tooth roots, so you can enjoy a healthy mouth, strong bite, and attractive new teeth—often for the rest of your life! To ensure these life-long benefits, you’ll want a dentist who is skilled and experienced in dental implant treatment. Here’s how you can find the right dentist for you:

 

Expertise in dental implant surgery

Choose a dentist with training and experience in dental implant surgery. While this may be your general dentist, you can certainly look for other doctors with higher degrees or more specialized surgical training. Choose a dentist who has completed many dental implant surgeries with success. A dentist with years of experience will help you feel confident undergoing surgery for a permanent solution.

Advanced training and certification

You’ll likely have much better surgical results if you choose a dentist with more advanced training or certifications. Board certification ensures the dentist has completed more rigorous training and testing. Affiliations with organizations like the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) often means a dentist continuously trains in the newest techniques and treatments in implant dentistry. In addition, look for a dentist who has invested in surgical technology to further ensure that your surgery is planned correctly, goes smoothly, and provides the best long-term results.

Patient reviews and ratings

Another great way to find the right dentist for your treatment is to talk with other patients or read their reviews. Part of the experience will be your interaction with the office staff and dentist, in addition to the actual procedures. Call the office or schedule a free consultation (if they’re offering) to get a feel for the office atmosphere. You can request before-and-after photos to see the quality of their treatment, too.

Searching for the right dentist for your dental implant treatment may take time, but it’s an important step of the process.

A Brief Guide to Dental Implant Surgery

August 26th, 2020 Dental Implants 0 comments on “A Brief Guide to Dental Implant Surgery”

Dental implant surgery is the replacement of missing teeth by the process of implanting ceramic crowns to form natural looking, supportive teeth that are secured by titanium “roots” that are placed into the jaw. Surgery can take a few months to complete, but the results of dental implant surgery are worthwhile. If you ever have thought about getting dental implant surgery, the information overload could seem daunting, so here is a brief breakdown of some of the top information to keep in mind.

 

When contemplating dental implant surgery, price is something to keep in mind. Depending on the type of implant you would be receiving, price can fluctuate. This surgery is not inexpensive, and medical insurance may not be an option for coverage. Payment plans can be set up with your dental implant surgeon and should be discussed ahead of the surgery.

Dental implant surgery is not an instant fix and is usually completed in stages. There are techniques that allow for the extraction and replacement in one day, but the work is not fully completed until the bones have fused to the implant, which takes several months. After the fusion of titanium to bone takes place to create your new teeth roots, your ceramic crowns are placed to create your new perfect smile.

For the dental implant, titanium is used to create the structure and security for your new teeth. Titanium is the metal used because of its durability and ability to exist in the body without affecting surrounding tissues. Titanium in the body is extremely unlikely to cause any adverse reactions, meaning your implant is trusted to be secure.

During your dental implant consultation, your doctor will decide if your jawbone structure is strong enough to take the implant. If it is not, bone grafting can be completed to strengthen your jaw, and may add some extra healing time before your implant takes place.
