7 Dental Implant Questions
Are Dental Implants Right For You?
7 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Making Your "Yes" or "No" Dental Implant Decision?
It is important that you don't rush into a dental implant decision (either to get implants or to forego them) without getting all of the facts ... weighing those facts based upon your wants, needs and desires ... understanding exactly what's involved in the process ... exploring the alternatives ... and asking yourself these seven questions:
Question 1 -- Am I missing one or more teeth that I have yet to replace ... or have replaced with dentures? (Implants are also a viable alternative to root canal therapy.)
Question 2 -- Do I want teeth replacements that look, feel, function and last just like real teeth ... or am I satisfied with what I have?
Question 3 -- Am I in reasonably good health?
Question 4 -- Am I willing and able to practice good oral health, flossing and brushing regularly?
Question 5 -- Am I willing to pay a little extra for the higher quality of life that dental implants are likely to give me?
Question 6 -- Am I willing to visit Dr. Scholler 2-3 times over a 2-4 month period to place the implants and do a couple of follow-ups to check my progress and complete the restoration process?
Question 7 -- What do I feel deep down with my innermost feelings and instincts ... Would I likely be happier and feel better about myself if I had dental implants versus what I have know?
If you answered YES to all of the above questions, then your decision is an easy one ... dental implants make sense for you.
If you answered YES to all but 2-3 of the questions, then your decision is not quite as clear cut and might require a bit more thinking. Dr. Scholler will be happy to meet with you -- no cost, no obligation, no pressure -- to answer any questions you have and to help you objectively sort through the confusion so you can make the decision that's right for you.
