The most frequently asked questions and answers regarding dental implantation
Who do I contact if I think dental implantation is the solution for me?
When you think about dental implantation, the most obvious is to turn to your own dentist who you trust and who knows you well. It is then the physician’s responsibility to direct their patient to the right place. After consulting the dental implant specialist, it is up to the patient to decide whether or not to continue with this recommended dentist.
What are your doctor’s duties and responsibilities?
The doctor should fully examine the patient’s teeth to get a clear picture of the tooth and gum condition and the availability of adequate bone for the implants. She or he has to explain all this in plain English and answer any questions you may have, according to their best knowledge about implantation.
How to decide if a dentist is suitable for dental implantation?Most general dentists are able to fully handle the dental problems that occur, but they may not be able to do dental implantation since it requires special knowledge and practice. Therefore, you should specifically ask whether she or he is capable of doing this kind of treatment. You can also ask how much experience they have in this area.
What do I need to know before I decide to have dental implantation?
First of all, your dentist needs to know what kind of implants and what kind of implantation method is suitable and can be used for you. There are two common implantation methods: one-phase immediate loading implantation and two-phase conventional implantation. More information on the major differences between the two implantation types can be found on this page (https://ilident.com/are-all-dental-implantation-methods-the-same/)
Is it true that possible implantation-based dentures in just 5 days?
Yes, it is possible. Using the aforementioned one-phase, Immediate Loading implantation, 95% of the patients may have a new dentition in just 5 working days. This method not only has the advantage of speed but can be applied for those who have a significant bone deficiency, which is not typical of conventional two-phase implantation.
Another advantage is that it is not necessary to cut up the gums, they simply drill the gums where wants to place the implant. For that reason, there is just minimal bleeding during implantation!
Are there dentists who deal with both preserving dentistry and dental implantation?
Yes, there are some. However, in our opinion, it is better to choose an oral surgeon dental implantologist with many years of experience and knowledge than a preventive dentist who does implantation too. The implantation itself – with the right knowledge – is usually not more complicated than a complicated wisdom tooth removal.
