Questions to ask before getting implants…

If you are considering getting implants there are some important things to keep in mind …
Here are a few questions you should ask your dentist – be sure to get answers before you make your decision for dental implants.

  1. How many implants do I need?
    Consider: The number of implants often determines the complexity of the procedure and also will have some implication of the cost. Also, in some cases, if there is not enough good quality of bone then more implants may be required.
  2. What implant system will the implant surgeon be using?
    Consider: There are over 500 implant systems around and some have more research behind them than others. The ones in teh top 3 have over 20 years of research which means they are safe and effective.
  3. How much does the procedure cost?
    Consider: It is really important to get the full cost for the implant and crown on top. Also, if you do require any bone grafting (artificial bone), determine if this cost will be extra or if it is included.
  4. Can I have sedation for my implant placement?
    Consider: implant placement is a very safe process, although it does involve surgery. We find that people are much more comfortable with some sedation, which helps patients relax.
  5. Immediate or delayed?
    Consider: will you have a provisional set of teeth straight away, or will you have to wear dentures for some time whilst the implants heal within the bone?
  6. Removable or fixed?
    Consider: the bridge that you have supported on top of the implants – will it be removable, or will it be fixed?
