Be Clear About Your Goals
One of the important things about choosing the best implant dentist for you is that they have to be someone you’re comfortable talking to. You have to be able to tell them about your goals for your dental implants and restorations.
Talk about function. What do you want to be able to do with your replacement teeth? How important are the different functions: smiling, chewing, talking, etc.? How important is comfort?
Use specific examples of what you want to be able to do with your dental implants. What foods do you want to eat, whether you want to be able to do public speaking, playing a brass or wind instrument, or anything else? Whatever your goals, make sure they are clear.
When it comes to appearance, feel free to bring in pictures for reference. These can either be pictures of yourself when you had an attractive smile or pictures of smiles you admire and wish you could have. In the latter case, your dentist might talk about how the smile might not be right for the size and shape of your face.
