Do You Believe These 5 Myths About Dental Implants?

Implant Model Philadelphia PA

Are any of these dental implant myths holding you back from the best tooth replacement option Philly has to offer? Dentists on the Square clear up these common misconceptions once and for all!

Myth #1: Getting a Dental Implant Hurts!

You won’t actually feel a thing during the procedure since your mouth will be comfortably numb. Post-surgery discomfort is easy to manage with over the counter pain relievers and it doesn’t last long. Getting an implant is far less invasive than having your wisdom teeth removed!

Myth #2: A Dental Implant Can Fall Out

Once it heals in place, that implant isn’t going anywhere! As long as you take good care of your implant, almost all people can expect their implants to stay with them for life.

Myth #3: Dental Implants Are Expensive

Implants don’t cost much more than dentures and dental bridges. Dental implants can even save you money in the long run, since they don’t need replacement and updating the way other restorations do.

Myth #4: I Don’t Have Enough Jawbone for a Dental Implant

It’s true that you need sturdy bone tissue for an implant to stay put. But procedures like bone grafting and mini implants could help you to qualify for the treatment even if you aren’t an ideal candidate at first.

Myth #5: Any Dentist Can Place a Dental Implant

Having your implant placed by a seasoned expert is the best way to guarantee success. If you don’t pick the right provider, you could experience discomfort, infection, or even implant failure.

    Dentists on the Square is great. I’ve had a lot of work done, and they are by far the best practice I’ve been to. They are preventative in mindset, which makes a huge difference to minimize issues before they are large scale problems. The team collaborates and they are very attentive. And now I walk out after a cleaning with much whiter teeth! My hygienist is amazing!

  • Betty H.

    This was my best experience at a dentist office. The staff was AWESOME!!!!. I had some major dental work done and still the experience was wonderful. Thanks, Bonnie for the warm welcome.

  • Jackie E.

    DOTS is fantastic! I’ve been a long time patient and have referred many friends. Their staff and doctors are attentive, caring and always willing to sit down and plan out treatment and talk through your benefits. Thank you!

  • Heidi S.

    They actually have me excited to get implants. The staff is amazing and extremely kind. Very thorough and comprehensible, even with such a detailed process. Thank you!! I’m very happy to have been recommended to come here.

  • Candace V.

    I highly recommend! The staff is really friendly and nice. I had my wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Roberts and Vince and they are great. I was really nervous to have that type of treatment but they reassured me that I would be okay and made it a good experience. It is so worth it!

  • Angela B.

    My first appointment at DOTS was pretty incredible. I had a traumatic experience at my last dentist three years ago that resulted in my 1) developing severe anxiety around going to the dentist and 2) me putting off my dental health for a while. Everyone at DOTS was incredible and super supportive. Shoutout to the hygienist and dentists there that get their patients through the appointments with humor and professionalism. I think I might actually look forward to the dentist now!

  • Jake P.
