Dental implants are widely known for being a state-of-the-art tooth-replacement option. After all, they replace the entire tooth’s structure from root to crown, are built to last 20+ years, and are the only option on the market that preserves your jawbone. However, few patients are aware of how to find the best implant dentist. If you are interested in restoring your smile and bite with dental implants, keep reading to learn three tips on finding the right dental professional for the job!
Tip #1: Look For Extensive Experience
Since dental implants require an extensive procedure and precise placement, you want to select a professional who has years of experience. In addition to taking note of their time in the field of dentistry, don’t hesitate to ask about how many patients they have successfully helped with dental implants. This will provide you with insight into their overall expertise as well as their hands-on experience.
Tip #2: Ask About Continuing Education
In addition to earning their dental doctorate, the professional you trust with your smile should prioritize continuing education. Completing advanced training and maintaining an active membership with professional organizations ensures they are up-to-date on the latest techniques and technology, which directly benefits you. Fortunately, this information is often listed in the doctor’s bio section on their website, but you can also bring this up during your initial consultation.
Tip #3: Read Patient Testimonials
Patients who have written a review, good or bad, were once in your position. Taking the time to listen to their experience can provide valuable insight into what yours may be like if you follow in their footsteps. Therefore, take the time to read reviews on the doctor’s website, Google, and even Facebook. Does it seem like the person had an overall positive experience? Did they feel cared for and informed? Would they make the same decision if they could do it all over again? Answers to questions like these can help you determine if the implant dentist you are considering is a good fit for you.
Initially, the process of finding an implant dentist can seem overwhelming. Fortunately, with the above tips in your arsenal, the journey to selecting the right one for you should be much more seamless!
