All staff members are very nice. I came in after having neck surgery. Range of motion wasn’t normal for me. They worked on it to make sure I was comfortable and not in pain. Will be going back again.

Dental Implants FAQs

dental implants faqsYou do not like that you are missing some of your teeth. It can make it difficult to chew some of the foods you love, and you probably do not like to smile either. Not having all your teeth can be embarrassing. Fortunately, with the restorative dentistry options available today at Chesterfield Family Dentistry, it is possible for patients to get the smile they deserve. One of the options available is to have dental implants put into the mouth. Most people have quite a few questions about the implants, so take the time to check out the following dental implants FAQs.

Dental Implants FAQ #1 – How Long Does It Take?

Many people want to know exactly how long it will take to add the implant or implants to the jaw. This depends on the location and the number for the most part. Most of the time though, the overall process will take less than an hour. You can speak with your dental implant specialist about this to get a better estimate for your procedure.

Dental Implants FAQ #2 – Does the Implant Process Hurt?

Of course, this is one of the areas that interests everyone who will be getting implants. During the process, patients are generally under a local anesthetic, which means that they do not feel anything. After the anesthetic wears off, they might feel some pain. However, it is easy to remedy this with some over the counter pain medications.

Dental Implants FAQ #3 – Will the Implant Be Successful

Dental implants have a high rate of success for those who are good candidates. There is a rare risk of rejection, but most of the time it works well. If it doesn’t work the first time, the dentist can remove it and then try again once the site heals.

I am always excited to go to the dentist now that I go to Chesterfield Family Dental. They always answer any questions I have and are so friendly and nice. I am always so comfortable here, which is saying alot because I have peridontal disease and the treatment for it doesn't always feel so great, but when Im here, the hygenist makes me forget all about it!

The staff is so warm and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door. Even though my son is a bit apprehensive about going to the dentist since he had to have four teeth pulled in the past, he is still always happy to see them. Dr. Buzbee and his staff are so great and patient with him. He leaves with a smile on his face and no cavities!

I have been a patient of Dr. Buzbee for as long as I can remember. The Staff at Chesterfield Family Dental is always greet you when you walk in and they seem to know everyone by name. The care you get for the staff is always great and all seem to be the best of the best at what they do. I have always recommend anyone I know to go see them and will continue to do so in the future.
