If you are a parent of a teenager that is heavy into playing sports, then you know what it is like to have them come home with cuts and bruises. When it comes to a cut or a scratch they will heal on their own. What happens when he or she comes home with missing teeth? This would be a whole different situation.

Back in the day, they would just make a retainer and call it good. The child would end up losing the retainer or breaking it. Now, they have dental implants, which act like a real tooth that will not come out.

In this article, we will talk about how to find a good dentist that will do implants.

Dentist

2The first step is to find a good dentist that will do implants as not all dentist will perform surgery. The easiest way is to look them up on the Internet. You will get an extensive list of different types of a dentist, make sure they do implants.

The next step would be to read their reviews and see how other people think of the quality of service from the dentist and staff. Always look to see how long they have been in service and if they are all licensed.

Cost for implants

When you are still comparing, make sure to ask them how much this will cost you. Don’t always go for the lowest price.

Insurance

Now that you have picked a dentist, you should make sure that the dentist will take your insurance. If you just opt to get this done without checking, you could be paying a lot of money to get your implants done.

Service

3When you go in to see the dentist for the first visit, he will go over everything that he or she thinks needs to be done. This is a good time to ask things like can the teeth be pulled and the implants at the same time or will you have to do more visits? How long will it take to recover from the implants? The most commonly asked question is, will it hurt?

In most cases, there will be two people who will be assisting you, one will make the implants, that will be the dentist, and the other is a maxillofacial surgeon; he or she will be the one who will put you to sleep and perform the surgery.
