If you need a dental restoration, it’s important to know how to choose a practice you can trust to provide comprehensive, quality care. Getting a dental implant (especially if you’re in need of extensive reconstruction) requires a specialist who is skilled, detail-oriented, reliable, and compassionate.

But how do you find the right dental implant specialist, and what should you look for in a practice? We’re here to offer some helpful tips so you can get the best care possible.

Look for a practice with specialized experience and training

Most practices will have specific information about the educational background and experience of their dentists on their website. Look for dentists that have specialized training and experience providing dental implants to ensure that you get care from a highly-reliable provider with a proven track record.

Pay attention to location

Finding a great provider is extremely important. It’s also necessary to find one that’s convenient for you to access. You’ll want to choose a place that’s within a reasonable distance of your home and workplace.

This will make the entire process easier, and more convenient, and will reduce transportation costs. It’s also a good idea to choose a place you can access quickly in case you’re ever in need of same-day care.

Listen to what other patients are saying

Although you can learn a lot from reading websites and asking questions, reviews from other patients are often the best place to find honest information. Google, Facebook, and Yelp are all great places to read up on other patients’ experiences at a given practice.

Keep an eye out for how other patients speak about not only treatment results, but customer service, communication, and how comfortable treatment was. Generally, patients that have a good experience like to show it off!

Read up on insurance and payment options

The cost of dental implants is one of the most common concerns patients have. The amount you can expect to pay can vary significantly depending on the specialist you go to.

Look for a dental implant specialist that accepts insurance and offers flexible payment options. Transparency is key. You should be able to speak openly about all of your options and get solid answers about cost – as well as recovery time and post-op care.

Also, make sure that you are not charged hundreds of dollars just to get a consultation on the treatments you need. At Smart Arches, your dental implants consultation is always completely free. Additionally, we accept most forms of insurance and are here to help you understand your benefits and the costs of treatment.

Ask questions before setting up an appointment

Before you decide whether a particular office is the right fit for you, it’s important that you get your questions answered.

Also, pay attention to the tone of the practice’s website and how the receptionist engages with you on the phone. This will give you an indication of the office’s atmosphere and attention to customer service. It’s important to make sure you’re dealing with compassionate, caring dental professionals.

Do they offer sedation options?

It’s common for patients to experience anxiety and nervousness before and during any restorative procedure. For patients with severe anxiety, it can even keep them from getting the treatment they need to stay healthy.

At Smart Arches, we prioritize helping patients feel as comfortable as possible during treatment so they can always get the care they need. That’s why we offer multiple sedation options, including IV sedation and general anesthesia.

Make sure they use up-to-date technology

Dental implants have come a long way over the years. Technological advancements have transformed these necessary procedures to make them less invasive, more comfortable, and more effective. We use the latest technology to ensure that you get high-quality, state-of-the-art care with minimal discomfort no matter your situation or needs.
