Find A Provider

Choosing the Right Dental Implant Provider

Dental implants have quickly become the most popular tooth replacement option for patients with missing or damaged teeth. But, after reviewing the treatment and your candidacy, how do you find the right provider for your specific goals, and budget? Here at Smile Design Specialists, we believe that education helps patients better understand what they are looking for and how to find the right dental implant provider for their needs. Here is some important information about how to choose a perfect provider and what you should do before you decide to use their dental implant placement services.

Reasons You Should Choose Smile Design Specialists For Your Dental Implant Placement

  • Dr. Ekstein has successfully completed the certification process with the American Board of Prosthodontics, and is now a Board Certified Prosthodontist. This is quite an accomplishment, considering there are only 14 Board Certified Prosthodontic Diplomates in the state of New Jersey.
  • Thanks to this additional education and training, Dr. Ekstein is significantly more skilled than many dentists in diagnosing and planning of restorative procedures such as: replacement of broken, worn, or decayed teeth with crowns, veneers or inlays; placement of implant crowns and prostheses; replacement of missing teeth with bridges; fabricating removable dentures and the management of TMJ disorders and bruxism.

Questions You Should Ask Your Dental Implant Provider

We recommend that you ask the following types of questions to assist you in determining if your potential provider is the right one for you:

  1. How long have you been practicing and how many years have you been placing dental implants?
  2. Do you have any special training in dental implant placement?
  3. Are you certified in dental implant placement? Do you currently have any other licenses or certificates related to tooth cosmetic dentistry or tooth replacement?
  4. What products and equipment do you use? Are you using the latest technology available?
  5. What is your success rate for dental implant placement? Do you have any pictures of former patients you can share?
  6. Will parts of my procedure need to be completed by a different provider?
  7. Have you ever had any disciplinary action?
  8. Will I need any supplementary treatment before I can undergo dental implant placement?
  9. Will I get a written estimate after my consultation? Is the consultation complementary? Is there an obligation to purchase products or services after my initial consultation?
  10. Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself for dental implant surgery?
