We’re sure you may have many more questions to ask as well, but if you’re not sure where to begin, let these be a start!
- How do you determine if I am a good candidate for dental implants?
The first step to determining if you’re a good candidate is to come in for an initial consultation where our implantologist Dr. Priyank Mathur examines your mouth and helps you make an informed decision.
However, as a guide, factors such as loose or missing teeth, difficulty chewing, loose dentures, or issues with food getting trapped under your dental bridges may also make you a good candidate for implants.
- Do you have special training in placing dental implants?
A training in implantology enables a trained dentist to be competent in the surgical placement of dental implants and to prevent complications associated with them. It is therefore always advisable to visit an implant specialist.
Our in-house specialist Dr. Priyank Mathur has a post-graduate degree in implant dentistry and the experience of placing more than 500 dental implants with a success rate of 98%.
