You may have heard that getting dental implants is a complicated process. Nothing could be farther from the truth, especially if you work with an oral surgeon who focuses on making it easier and faster to receive top quality dental implants in Thousand Oaks, CA.
How can an oral surgeon speed up the time that it takes for you to go from consultation to a new smile? Below are several methods that can shave off weeks or even months from this potentially life-changing treatment.
Offering All Appointments at One Location
One of the biggest factors affecting the time it takes to get dental implants is having to go from one specialist to another. Not only can that be frustrating, but it can lead to miscommunications between healthcare providers.
A better solution is to choose a dentistry practice that offers single-location treatment. All your information, as well as your oral surgeon and other dentists, will be in one place, making it simpler for everyone to be on the same page.
Using Advanced Technologies to Place Dental Implants in a Day
Traditionally, dental implant placement involves two surgeries. During the first, the implant is placed in the bone. After several months, the abutment and crown are added.
If you are accepted as a candidate for a same-day dental implant procedure, you could eliminate this months-long waiting period. You could literally walk in with one smile and out with another in a period of a few hours.
Relying on the Latest in Bone Grafting Techniques
Not everyone can receive dental implants without a bone graft or other additional procedures like a tooth extraction. But did you know it can be possible to perform a bone graft or extraction at the same time that the implant post is placed?
To be sure, not all oral surgeons offer this type of all-inclusive treatment option. Look for a practice that gives you the choice and can back up their work with countless happy patients.
