A person’s smile is one of the first things we notice about people when we meet them. A great smile immediately makes the person seem kind, friendly and welcoming and the conversation starts off on a good note. However, the exact opposite is the case if a person smiles and has either really bad teeth or missing teeth altogether. It makes the person seem a little suspicious and can be quite off putting in many ways. So what if you are the person with the poor dental situation? What can one do to fix this about themselves and build the confidence needed to become a happier and for self-assured individual? This article is being written to suggest Dental Implants or Oral Surgery. However, when you or someone you know and love are choosing an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, there are a few things you should keep in mind.
1. Reviews. Make a list of the top five to ten Oral Surgeons you are considering for the work you want to have done in your mouth. After you’ve created this list, spend a bit of time doing some research and find out what prior clients have to say about their experience working with this dentist. Most good Oral Surgeons will have these reviews on their own website, but do not simply go there and call it good. Do a little more digging online on various sites and make sure that everyone was happy with the care they received from that doctor.
2. Payment. Hopefully you have some sort of dental insurance, and if so, you should definitely call your prospective Oral Surgery facilities and double check that they accept that insurance. If for one reason or another you do not have any dental insurance, you will want to think about how you plan to pay for your Dental Implants or whatever work you are getting done. Maybe you will use a credit card, write a check or hope the office offers some sort of payment plan. Whatever option you choose, call the oral surgery facility yourself and verify that this option will work for you and for them.
3. After you have narrowed your search based on previous clients reviews and found a few Dental Surgery facilities that will work with your payment plan, you can make your final decision based on one more determining factor, experience. It is all well and good that you found a low cost Oral Surgeon who earned three out of five stars on most reviews, but what if there were limited reviews available and this doctor has only been doing this type of work for a year or two. I’m not sure about you but I’m not willing to let someone with that little experience put sharp objects into my mouth. Look for an Oral Surgeon that has several years of quality work in the field under their belt. This will leave you less anxious and stressed as you sit in their chair having your work done.
