This message from Neal C. Johnson DMD in Billings is for those who have decided to replace a missing tooth with a dental implant. Great choice!
Now you need to choose a dental implant specialist to perform the procedure.
This is a critical decision. A dental implant is permanent. It involves oral surgery. It requires a significant financial investment. Making a bad choice of provider can lower your chances for success.
Here are the critical factors to consider:
- How many years has the dentist been performing implants?
- How many dental implant procedures has he/she done?
- How many years has the dentist been practicing cosmetic dentistry?
Online reviews are a good resource. Former patients not only give a star rating, some of them share details about their experience. Check out the reviews for any dentist you are considering. Visit multiple online platforms.
A modern dental practice with the latest technology helps ensure a successful outcome. When you visit the office, ask about their patient amenities. Observe the cleanliness of the office and friendliness of the team.
What About Price?
You may wonder why we didn’t list price as one of the considerations. This was intentional. Choosing an implant clinic by price alone is a bad idea. In the Billings area, most implant dentists’ prices are comparable. If you find a provider that has slashed the price for implants, be cautious. Find out exactly what is covered. A dental implant consists of a post, abutment and crown (or denture). Some implant-only clinics advertise the price for the post alone. This is misleading.
