There are a lot of misconceptions when it comes to getting dental implants! From the questions you should be asking for the treatment to the specialist you are seeing, many people are misguided from the start.
When scheduling your next dental appointment, consider asking your dentist some of these important questions that can help guide you in the right direction:
Does your dentist offer a standard X-Ray or a full 3D scanning?
Not all dental practices offer CT scans and many will commonly send you to another practice that has one. A standard X-Ray does not provide the kind of detail that dental implants require because they are two-dimensional. At Venice Dental Care, our CT 3-D scanner not only gives us a view of all interior structures of your mouth, but it also shows how much bone you have and its current condition – all while avoiding nerves. This process is vital to pinpointing the placement of the dental implant.
Are you choosing the right specialist for your dental implants?
Many people assume an oral surgeon is the most qualified to perform dental implants under the thinking that it requires surgically removing a tooth and replacing it with an artificial one. That is a common misconception! It is actually more important to look for a doctor who specializes in the gum tissue and bone in the mouth, which is a vital part of anchoring a dental implant. At our practice, each of our dentists is highly skilled and experienced to meet your unique implant needs and will provide you with full comprehensive care.
How long is the procedure?
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, on average, the total treatment time varies from a few months to more than a year in a complex scenario. Here at Venice Dental Care, we offer nSequence® treatments which can replace all of your upper and lower teeth in just a single day.
