Dental implants are the right choice for patients who are coping with missing, diseased or broken teeth. Choosing the right surgeon for a dental implant procedure is not something that should be taken lightly, especially when seeking a solution for full-mouth dental implants.
Discomfort can be a powerful motivation. When you are living with pain that complicates everyday tasks like eating, speaking, or sleeping, the decision to replace teeth with dental implants can feel incredibly urgent. However, jumping into a decision without doing the research can lead to unforeseen complications, more pain, and new unexpected expenses further down the road.
What Is a Dental Implant?
Dental implants are well recognized as an appropriate solution for broken teeth, missing teeth, and the discomfort and inconvenience caused by bridges or partials.
Often people mistakenly refer to the artificial tooth fitted above the gum as a dental implant.
This artificial replacement tooth is a crown, while the dental implant is the titanium anchor that fastens the crown to the jaw. Serving as an anchor, the implant replaces the function of a natural healthy tooth root. When placed by a qualified surgeon, the implant often encourages new bone development and improved jaw health.
How Do I Know I Can Trust My Dental Implant Provider?
The placement of dental implants is classified by the American Dental Association (ADA) as a procedure, which means, at this time, there is no recognized specialty in dental implants. Despite a lack of accreditations or requirement for additional licensing, these procedures are complex and specific to each case.
For that reason, it’s essential that you carefully determine whether your surgeon has the qualifications necessary to get the job done well.
An inexperienced surgeon may not make the most informed choices when selecting appropriate abutments, employing techniques such as zygomatic implants, or recommending bone grafting when it may not be effective. In fact, at New Teeth Now, our surgeons often find we can offer safe and effective dental implant solutions without any additional bone grafting. This comes as a great surprise and relief to patients who had been told they weren’t candidates for implants due to bone loss. Our surgeons also perform dozens of implant procedures per month and have been doing so for more than a decade.
