So here’s the follow up to my last blog about fit and forget implants:
here’s a few questions to put to the dentist before you choose to go ahead:
Q. What guarantees do you offer on your dental implants?
Q. Will you replace an implant if it doesn’t take – free of charge?
Q. And in the long term – how will you ensure that I still have my implants in 10 years?
Q. What are the ongoing maintenance requirements for dental implants, and how much does that maintenance cost?
Q. Can I see some before and after photos of your work?
Q. Can I speak to any of your patients who have had implants placed by you? (Ask for testimonials)
Q. How long have you been placing dental implants?
Q. How many implants have you placed?
Q. How many of those implants have failed?
Q. Talk to me about peri-implantitis!
Q. I’m a smoker – am I still suitable for dental implants?
Q. I have had gum disease, this is how I lost my teeth (they got wobbly and fell out), will the same thing happen to my dental implants?
Its important to know everything before you choose, and of course, we’ll answer all these questions for you in the Free Consultation.
