Many patients looking for ways to replace missing teeth seek out dental implant FAQ information to see if dental implants are the ideal tooth replacement solution. The doctors at The Dental Studio in Midland can answer all of your questions during your consultation, but below you will find our dental implant FAQs for patients in Midland, TX:
Dental implant procedures are completely customized for the patient and are designed to address all of the symptoms or oral health issues you are experiencing because of missing tooth structures. Our doctors can replace a single tooth, several missing teeth or a full arch of missing teeth. They have advanced knowledge and experience with the Dental Implants® full arch dental implants procedure where they create a very natural-looking bridge to attach to dental implants.
This question comes up often, which is why we included it in our dental implant FAQ page. Some patients in Midland, TX, find their insurance company does cover some or partial costs of dental implant surgery. Some insurance providers even offer a benefit for pre-operative procedures, such as a sinus lift. We can review your benefit coverage with you before treatment begins.
The surgery to place dental implants is typically performed in one visit but you might need to come in for a bone grafting or other procedures to prepare the gums and mouth for implants. This will add time to your treatment plan. After placement, we will need to wait several months for the gums to heal before we can place the final restoration.
Our doctors at The Dental Studio of Midland are unique because they are doctors of dental surgery and skilled in restorative procedures. They can perform both the placement and restoration procedure in house, and also perform bone grafts, sinus lifts, and laser gum disease treatment if necessary. This means you can work with the same doctor for the entire course of treatment.
Every patient has a different pain tolerance level, but most patients find they can tolerate this procedure well because of sedation dentistry options. You will be numb throughout your procedure and we have several ways to reduce dental anxiety. Our doctors use some of the most advanced technology in the industry to reduce time in the dentist’s chair and minimize pain and discomfort.
Our dental implants are made with highly durable materials and designed to last a lifetime. As long as you take good care of your teeth and gums, you can look forward to maintaining your new smile for many years to come.
