How dental implants may solve tooth loss problems and other frequently asked questions (FAQ):
Dental implant surgery may have significant benefits for patients who have lost their teeth due to accident, illness, or tooth decay. At Washington Street Dentistry in Indianapolis, Dr. Matthew Church understands that patients may have questions or concerns prior to treatment. Our patients’ frequently asked questions (FAQ) include:
Do dental implants hurt?
Patients who have had dental implant surgery report feeling little discomfort, less than a tooth extraction. Patients considering dental implants should consult a skilled and experienced dentist regarding comfort measures such as sedation. At Washington Street Dentistry, our gentle, professional team provides a comprehensive consultation, which includes sedation options for each patient’s maximum comfort.
What experience should my dentist have?
As with any surgical procedure, oral surgery such as dental implantation can have risks or complications. A dentist with advanced training in Oral Implantology can evaluate your medical history or health problems, conduct diagnostic tests, and talk with you about any potential risks or adverse reactions.
Dr. Matthew Church at Washington Street Dentistry has more than 16 years of experience as a dentist serving families in Indianapolis and surrounding areas. Having earned his dental degree at University of Kentucky, Dr. Church graduated from Misch International Institute’s surgical program and he holds a Fellowship with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
What payment options exist?
Dental implants may or may not be covered by dental insurance plans. The knowledgeable staff at Washington Street Dentistry can discuss your insurance plan and payment options with you. Believing that every patient deserves the opportunity to achieve his or her healthiest smile, Dr. Church and his staff offer flexible and affordable payment options including credit card, check, cash, and CareCredit financing.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Beyond the profound impact that dental implants can have on a patient’s confidence and overall appearance, they also function with the stability and durability of natural teeth, improving speech, and restoring a patient’s enjoyment and comfort when eating. Dental implants provide a stronger foundation in the jawbone and, because nearby teeth are not altered, allow proper oral hygiene.
