Having made the decision to restore your missing teeth using dental implants is only half of the battle. Now that you know what direction to go in, it is time for you to decide who you want to perform your implant treatment. Not every dental implant provider has the same training and experience, and it can be difficult to determine which has the best chance of providing the quality of results you are looking for. In order to help you navigate the field of dental implant providers, we here at Assure a Smile have put together a list of questions you should ask of every potential implant dentist operating in the Miami, FL area you speak with.
It is incredibly important that you do your research before deciding whether or not you want to work with a certain implant provider. There are many different implant related training programs and organizations, as well as different levels of experience and skill, all of which can affect a dentist’s ability to achieve results using dental implants. Listed below are just some questions you should consider asking your potential implant dentist before agreeing to undergo treatment with them:
Dr. Ted Herrmann has been practicing dentistry for over 20 years now. Over this time, he has performed thousands of restorations using dental implants. With each restoration, another patient has left our office sporting a beautiful new smile.
Thanks to the constantly evolving technology and practices in the field of implant dentistry, dental implants have become a remarkably successful treatment. In fact, Dr. Herrmann has a success rate of over 95%.
As part of Dr. Herrmann’s association with the International Congress of Oral Implantology, he is required to attend continuing education and meetings in implant dentistry. This has the benefit of ensuring that he is constantly up to date on any new techniques or technology being used in implant restorations.
Some implant providers are not involved with every aspect of the treatment. In fact, some only do the restoration aspect of the procedure, choosing to outsource the placement surgery to another doctor. When you come to Assure a Smile, you can rest assured that Dr. Herrmann will be in charge of every moment of your implant restoration, from consultation to surgery to the final restoration.
At our practice, we offer a variety of different sedation and pain management options that can help minimize the amount of discomfort you feel during the implant process. During the placement surgery, you will be given an anesthetic, which will ensure you feel no pain while your implant is being positioned. We can also offer nitrous oxide and oral sedation if you suffer from dental anxiety or are worried about pain. We can also provide drug-free options for sedation and anxiety relief. For instance, we use homeopathic pellets and gels, which can be used to calm anxiety, alleviate pain, and even reduce the effects of anesthesia after your treatment is completed.
Before we perform any treatment at our office, we require that the patient attends a no-obligation consultation with Dr. Herrmann. During this consultation, the doctor will thoroughly examine your oral health in order to determine your needs and which treatments can provide the best results. Once we have this information, we will provide you with a written estimate of the cost of your proposed treatment options.
Absolutely. Here at Assure a Smile, we are constantly taking pictures of the work we have performed over the years. Because of this, we have a good collection of dental implant patients that perfectly reveal the quality of work we provide to our patients.
At our office, we work hard to ensure that our Miami, FL area patients are provided with the best quality of care and treatment. This is all thanks to Dr. Herrmann’s dedication to his craft and to continuing education. If you would like to learn more about dental implants or would like to bring your questions directly to Dr. Herrmann, then we encourage you to contact our office and schedule a no-obligation consultation today.
