Factor the location of the practice into your choices. Driving for hours to see a provider is more strenuous on your wallet than a local implant provider with the same credentials and experience. Look at the cleanliness of their office and the age of their equipment.
Speaking of equipment, dental implants are a complex procedure that is constantly advancing each year. A good implant provider is one who stays on top of the latest trends and understands how to integrate new technology into their office. Ask if you can see the machines that they use to analyze and diagnose patients.
Ask the provider about where they went to dental school, as well as implant training courses. Continuing education is also important to the advancement of dental implants and to maintain certain certifications, so don’t be afraid to ask about those either. Ask about their success rate with dental implants among their patients, or any before and after photo sets.
Dental implant dentistry is a field that never stops changing. Implant providers are aware that they need to stay up-to-date on tools and techniques in order to provide the best service for their patients. The best way to achieve that is through memberships and fellowships with implant-related dental organizations. Some common ones include:
While this option may seem unexpected, it’s still important. Over the course of your consultation, ask yourself if you get along with this implant provider. After all, you will be spending a lot of time in their office. Take a look at other services they offer, and see if you’d be interested in coming back to them for future treatments.
If you’re still stumped on what exactly to bring to the table during a consultation, consider asking the following:
