The Angie's List Guide to Dental Care
On this episode of Chat with the Experts, we talk with Dr. Jin Cho about managing dental anxiety, choosing a dentist, and how to properly care for your teeth.
If you chose to go the other way, some Prosthodontists will place and restore the implants themselves. In other cases, an Oral Surgeon or Periodontist will place the implant and a Prosthodontist or General Dentist restores it. Fees can vary quite a bit from office to office and with the different options for restorative materials. Some offer free consultations, for others, they charge a fee that might be applied to any future treatment in some cases.
The first step is to schedule a few consultations with different providers, which it sounds like you've already done.
The most important factors when deciding which practitioner to work with:
.1. You should feel comfortable asking your doctor any questions so that you have a good understanding of the procedure itself, healing time and long-terem outcome, and possible complications. Write down a list of questions and take them with you to the consultation.
2. Ask about the experience of the practitioner. How many similiar procedures have they completed? Have they had any major complications with any cases? Ask to see photos if possible.
3..Figure out if it works out better for your schedule, to go to a "one stop" provider or to separate providers for the placement and the restoration of the implants.
4. Follow your instincts. If you feel rushed, didn't get direct answers to your questions, didn't communicate well or had any other negative feelings, this probably isn't the doctor for you.
5. Consider insurance coverage and financing options. If your dental plan covers implants and it is important to you to use a preferred provider, you will want to check your list. Many times, insurance does not cover implants, or at least not all of the steps. You may want to inquire about payment and financing options.
I hope this at least helps you feel a little less confused and a little more directed. Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of further help.

At any point in the process, did they have you sign something saying you were happy with the denture set up? Some practitioners will document the patient's acceptance at the try-in appointment, before the denture is processed. At that time, changes in tooth arrangement, size and color can be made with minimal lab expense.
If the letter doesn't get you anywhere, you might try going to the governing body of the dental profession in your area. I am a dentist in Blue Springs, Missouri, USA. Here, we have the Missouri Dental Board (or the Dental Division of the Missouri Department of Professional Registration.) This is the entity that licenses us to perform our professional duties in our state. They often have a process to file complaints against a provider if you were unable to resolve the problem yourself. After your complaint is received, they will contact the doctor to get their side of the story, then try to mediate a solution between the two parties.
As far as a new set of dentures, you might seek out the services of a Prosthodontist (specializes in dentures and removable appliances - extra training and certification beyond general dentistry) or go to a local dental school. The students are supervised and checked off at each step by professionals. Most dental schools also treat patients through their faculty practices, and you can often get the services of a specialist at a lower price.
I hope this information is helpful to your situation, and I wish you well.

Cosmetic Dentistry reviews in Paragould
If someone comes to the dentist, they obviously know they need some work done. There's no need to repeatedly point out the obvious. A more appropriate way for the hygienist to have handled my situation would have been to just clean my teeth, then tell me at the end that I had a lot of excess buildup, ask me questions to find out why this was happening, then provide product recommendations and teach me techniques to keep it from happening again.
Anyway, at the "shaming" visit, the hygienist didn't even finish cleaning my teeth. She scraped them, said she couldn't polish them that day, had me buy $18 mouthwash and some special flossers, then scheduled me for another appointment 10 days later.
Ten days later, I went in for my appointment and was told they were running "10 minutes late." 45 minutes later, I was told to reschedule my appointment because the office didn't have any more clean tools. When I expressed my frustration, the person at the front desk told me, "Well, you wouldn't want anything dirty in your mouth, would you?" No, I would not. However, "dirty tools in your mouth" or "reschedule your appointment" shouldn't be the only two options--especially after making me wait 45 minutes.
Yesterday, I went in for my third appointment. I had scheduled it for a Monday because I was told it was their least busy day. When I arrived, I was told they were running "a little late" again. There was already another client ahead of me, so I did not stick around for what was sure to be a repeat of last week. Now, I am now taking my family's business elsewhere. I took time off work THREE TIMES for a basic teeth cleaning and never did get the service completed.
I understand that procedures sometimes run unexpectedly long and know that most physicians double-book in case of cancellations because their time is valuable and they want to be profitable. However, my time is valuable too. At my billable rate, I cost my company over $600 in billable work by not being available to work during the time I spent traveling to and waiting in the dentist's office. This is, of course, on top of the personal vacation time I had to use in order to make these appointments.
This system just isn't going to work for me, no matter how much I like Dr.
