Common Misconceptions Around Full Dental Implants

If you are missing several teeth or have several more that are damaged and decaying, you might be a good candidate for full mouth dental implants. However, you might be reluctant to have the procedure done. You might wonder, How can I afford them? Isn’t the procedure long and painful? This week, we are going to address some of these misconceptions around full mouth dental implants. But before we do that, if you think dental implants might be a good fit for you or perhaps some other restorative procedure, then you should consult with Dr. Liberman and her team at Great Neck Dental Care.

1st Misconception: The Surgery is Painful

Some people are afraid of the pain associated with dental surgery and implants, so they figure they will just continue living with missing teeth. Now, it would be dishonest to say that there is no pain following this procedure. There is some level of pain following practically all surgeries. However, patients attest that the pain following implants is roughly the same as having a tooth pulled.

2nd Misconception: They Are Noticeable

Another misconception is that the dental implants are noticeable and somehow look artificial. However, this is simply not the case. Your dentist will work with you and provide you with a shade of implant that looks natural for your mouth and smile. The only people who will be able to notice your new teeth are the people that you tell. Though it might be frightening to get so many new teeth, your restored smile will be well worth it!

3rd Misconception: Any Dentist Can Add Implants

So, most dentists can perform the full dental implant procedure. But that does not mean you should go to any dentist - like the cheapest dentist, for example. You can check reviews online, talk to some friends who have had the procedure done, or pay a visit to the dentist and ask how successful their patients have been. For a procedure such as this one, you will want to work with someone who has a lot of experience with dental implants - some like Dr. Liberman of Great Neck Dental Care.

4th Misconception: You Should Go with the Cheapest Option

When your teeth are involved, you do not want to be stingy and go for the cheapest option. Of course, you do not want to spend any more money than you need to. This is where you will need to have a thorough conversation with your dentist in which you address the different implant manufacturers, the costs of different implants, whether or not your insurance will cover the different types of implants, and their respective pros and cons. Full mouth dental implants are not a cheap procedure, but they also do not need to be exorbitantly expensive. Dr. Liberman and her team have experience providing patients with a variety of restorative dentistry procedures, such as dental bridges, full mouth reconstruction, and full dental implants. Dr. Liberman’s expertise, care, and resources can provide you with some of the best that Nassau County and Long Island have to offer.
