Questions to Ask Your Kennewick Dental Implants Provider
Considering a dental implant in Kennewick, WA or the Tri-cities WA? Here are some questions and answers you may find very valuable.
What Is a Dental Implant and Why Do People Get Them?
How Long do Dental Implants Last?
Typically, by the time most people require them, they will last a lifetime. They say that they will last longer than 40 years, but again, if you brush and floss regularly and have good dental hygiene, they should last forever. Compare that to a regular dental crown, which has a maximum life of about 20 years.
That depends upon many factors. The procedure is completed over a time frame of 6-12 months depending on how much surgical work is required. So time wise, it is typically 3 sessions of 1-2 hours each, spread over 6-12 months.
Where and How did You Gain Your Training and Education in Implant Treatment?
Dr. Simper has additional training in Laser Dentistry, Implants, Sleep Apnea, and Invisalign. Thanks to his gentle touch and chairside mannerisms, the dentist makes every patient comfortable during their visit.
Does My Insurance Pay for Implants?
Some insurance providers may partially cover implants. But most carriers do not provide for the surgical placement of the implants. Before the implant process, we recommend checking with your insurance provider. This will enable you to get a detailed look at what’s covered and what is not covered.
At Southridge Dental, our team will complete a complimentary benefits check. This will help to determine the exact coverage for the implant process based on your insurance.
