Implants: 3 Things You Shouldn’t Fall For

When you’re examining the possibility of deciding on dental implants, you may find yourself with a wide array of possible options. One of the main challenges you may face might include deciding from which practice you will receive your implants. While we understand your preference to consider multiple options before moving forward with your smile completion, we would like to encourage you to come see us, your oral and maxillofacial surgeons, for the changes you need and the beautiful finish you deserve. Think through a few things to avoid and then give us a call to get started!

#1: Ignore Ads Promising Too Much

When you see an ad that promises a full set of dental implants in one office visit no matter what, run in the opposite direction. There are many details required when planning for and placing implants, which means such “too good to be true” offers are just that.

#2: Resist Implants From A General Dentist

If a general dentist offers dental implants, recognize that this is something best placed and provided by an oral surgeon. Recognize, as well, that placement is not necessarily all that you will need. You may require bone grafting, a sinus lift, or other care to prep you for success with implants. Choosing implant experts promotes your best start-to-finish experience.

#3: Avoid Suggestions In The Absence Of Advanced Imaging

If someone takes a quick look at your smile and then begins providing you with specific suggestions for your care plan, beware: You need a thorough assessment, including advanced imaging, before you can receive the detailed case planning you require. Without a complete understanding of your oral structures, such planning cannot accurately take place. Rest assured, our team offers the comprehensive imaging and examination that is necessary for strategic and precise dental implant treatment.
