Dental implants are definitely life-changing. They are a fantastic treatment, perfectly suited to those missing a tooth (or more) that provide the closest thing you can get to your natural teeth in terms of functionality, feel, and look. However, being a surgery, it is not a treatment that should be taken light-heartedly. On the contrary, it requires some serious thinking before proceeding and a long-term commitment on the patient’s behalf. This means that you must be certain you can commit to a lengthy treatment time, and, if we’re being honest, a fair amount in investment. The results you get from dental implants are excellent and contribute tremendously to elevating your mood and confidence. But, you do need to have your questions answered, before taking the next step. For these reasons, we, as SameDay Teeth Suite, offer a free, no-obligation consultation.

So, when the time comes, do your due diligence and consider asking your dentist the following:

Questions to Ask the Dentist

  • How long have you been fitting implants in Leicester?
  • What are your success rates?
  • Are your dental implants guaranteed and, if so, what is covered exactly?
  • What happens if the implant doesn’t take?
  • Do you have samples of your work (patient photos, video testimonials, etc.)?
  • How many implants have you placed (just a rough estimate)?
  • How many surgeries are required?
  • Do you utilise sedation?

Now that you have a pretty good first impression about the dentist’s credentials. However, this is not it. There are other things to be asked, as well…

Questions about You

  • How will I know if I’m eligible for dental implants?
  • How much will they cost?
  • How can I, as a patient, ensure I will still have my implants in 10 years’ time?
  • I know I will need ongoing maintenance. What is the cost of that?
  • I am a smoker. Am I still a good candidate for dental implants?

Finally, here are some last questions to clarify things for you, in regards the process.

Questions about the Process

  • How long does the procedure take?
  • How many stages are involved?
  • Does it hurt?
  • How long will it take to recover from surgery?
  • Will I be able to eat normally after the surgery?
  • I’m a nervous patient. Can you do anything to help?

Apparently, there are many questions you might want to, and, indeed, should be asking. Remember that the more familiar you are with the process and what to expect, the easier you can make the right decision.
