When it comes to deciding on which dentist to go to for treatment with dental implants, it always amazes us to learn how little consideration gets put into such an important decision. In fact, many people put more thought into where they will eat lunch on any given day than what they put into researching the person who will be in charge of their oral health. It is important that our current and prospective implant patients understand that not all Garden City dental implant providers are equally experienced and there are some important questions you should ask your potential dentist before agreeing to undergo treatment with them. We encourage you to read on to learn more.
What certifications does your dentist have?
There are many different organizations and training programs that implant dentists can participate in that can help them obtain the best education in the procedure. Often times, in order to join these organizations it is required that the dentist take a variety of tests that will fully reveal their knowledge in regards to treatment with dental implants.
For instance, Dr. Smile Moore has obtained a fellowship from the International Congress of Oral Implantology. He is also a member of the American Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry.
How long has your dentist been placing dental implants?
Dental implant technology has greatly improved over the last 10 years as new techniques are being discovered that can make them much easier to place. With all these new technologies, it is important that dentists take continuing education courses to remain up to date with the current standard of implant treatment.
Dr. Moore has been placing dental implants for over twenty years now. He is also sure to attend continuing education courses in order to keep his skills up to date. For instance, Dr. Moore participated in F.O.R.C.E., the Faculté for Orthodontic Research and Continuing Education.
Does your implant dentist conduct an examination during the consultation?
Dental implants are not the best treatment for every patient suffering from missing teeth. In fact, there are a variety of different conditions that can interfere with the implant process, resulting in the treatment failing. In order to prevent this from happening, an implant dentist will usually perform a thorough examination of each patient’s oral health before agreeing to place implants for them.
During the initial implant consultation with Dr. Moore, he checks each patient to make sure that they fulfill all of the requirements needed to be considered a good candidate for treatment with dental implants. He will also take this time to address any remaining questions or concerns you may have remaining about the treatment.
