If you have even one missing tooth, then replacement is essential for the sake of your smile, your oral health and your well being. Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement. A small post of titanium metal does a really big job of completing your smile. It is critical, however, to make sure that the implant dentist you choose is properly educated and experienced in placing dental implants. For dental implants, Falls Church residents have learned to trust Dr. Berrada, the implant dentist at Tysons Dental Esthetics.
Dental Implant Education
Lots of dentists call themselves implant dentists, but it’s really up to you to do your homework and find out just how qualified they are. Some dentists only spend a single weekend learning how to place dental implants. Others enroll in a short training course. For the best outcome, look for an implant dentist with credentials from the American Academy of Implant Dentistry or the International Congress of Oral Implantology. This is your assurance that the dentist has received the best training and has completed a requisite number of hours in order to be certified. Dr. Berrada holds membership in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry as well as the International Congress of Oral Implantology.
Questions to Ask an Implant Dentist
A qualified implant dentist will be able to help you decide if dental implants are, in fact, the best tooth replacement option for you. Of course, cost and procedure time are important considerations. You’ll also want to consider your lifestyle and long-term goals, so you can eat, smile, laugh and speak with confidence.
Some of the questions to ask an implant dentist include:
- How many dental implant procedures have you done?
- What kind of implant dentistry education have you received?
- What is involved in the implant process?
- How long can I expect my recovery to take?
- What type of anesthesia do you recommend for my procedure?
- What are the risks involved in the dental implant procedure?
- What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Do you have any before-and-after photos of other patients who have come to you for dental implants?
