Factors to consider before going for Dental Implants

There are several important factors to consider before getting dental implants in Miami. Here are some of the key things to keep in mind:

Overall health: Dental implants are a surgical procedure, so it’s important to be in good health overall. Certain health conditions, such as diabetes or immune system disorders, may increase the risk of complications during the implant procedure or during the healing process. Your dentist or oral surgeon will evaluate your medical history and assess your suitability for the procedure.

Oral health: Your oral health is also a key consideration. If you have existing gum disease or tooth decay, these issues will need to be treated before the implant procedure. Additionally, there must be enough healthy bone in your jaw to support the implant. If you have lost bone due to gum disease or other factors, you may need a bone graft before getting implants.

Cost: Dental implants can be expensive, so it’s important to consider the cost and whether you can afford it. Insurance may not cover the full cost of the procedure, so it’s important to check with your insurance provider to see what is covered.

Time commitment: The dental implant process can take a few months.It can be placed in the jaw and the restoration (crowns, bridge, hybrid) can be complete in a couple of months with the new technology.  We have a new in-house laboratory. It will be a waiting period between each stage of the process.

Maintenance: Dental implants require regular maintenance, including regular check-ups and cleanings, just like natural teeth. It’s important to be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene habits to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Choose your dentist wisely: Considering above all factors, it’s really important to choose the dentist on the basis of his experience and expertise in dental procedures. You should consider a dentist’s qualifications and other factors, including patient ratings, the practice’s location, and hours. It’s crucial to choose the right specialist.
