Things Every Dental Implant Patient Needs to Know
You’ve probably already heard about how great dental implants are for your smile. After all, they’re the next best thing to natural teeth! But at Marconi Dental Group, there are 5 things that we want each one of our dental implant patients to know. They might not be things you’ve even considered, but they can impact your decision when it comes to replacing missing teeth.
1. You Need to Choose an Implant Dentist That Provides Comprehensive Treatment
Far too many people go to the dentist for an “implant,” but find out during the process that they have to go somewhere else for the actual surgical placement of the implant itself. After the surgery is completed, they finally go back to their regular dental provider to have the tooth restored. Not here! Our Carmichael dentists place and restore your dental implants in one convenient location – reducing the number of appointments that you need.
2. It Doesn’t Hurt to Get Dental Implants
Most people dislike getting dental work done. It’s just a fact of life. But many people assume that getting a dental implant will be an extremely painful process. That simply isn’t the case! Like any other type of dental treatment or surgery, we numb the area around the implant site, so that you don’t feel any discomfort or pain. You can even request sedation to keep you as comfortable as possible.
3. We Don’t Want to Pull Your Teeth Just So That You Can Get Implants
Yes, implants are the best thing since sliced bread, but if it’s possible, we want to help you save your natural teeth. That might mean we recommend a root canal or crown before having a tooth pulled just to replace it with an implant. Your smile is in our best interest.
4. Insurance May Actually Cover a Portion of Your Treatment
Dental implants aren’t nearly as expensive as they used to be! More and more people are finding them to be a cost efficient solution for replacing their missing teeth. Dental insurance companies are starting to feel the same way. In fact, many plans are starting to cover at least a portion of the implant process. Plus, your implant restoration, such as a crown, bridge, or denture, can also be applied to your insurance plan benefits.
5. If You Weren’t a Candidate for Implants Before, You Might be Now
In the past, technology for dental implant placement was limited. Since then, implant design and placement techniques have evolved. At Marconi Dental Group, we can provide comprehensive implant treatments to people that may need bone grafts, sinus lifts, or have previously been told they weren’t candidates for implants. You might just be surprised!
