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.

Misconceptions About Dental Implants

misconceptions about dental implantsFor many patients worldwide, the term “implants” has a scary meaning. It’s understandable for someone to feel anxious about the idea of receiving an implant inside the mouth. Our Springfield dentists at Chesterfield Family Dental can help debunk some of the most common misconceptions about dental implants. Our implant dentist will help you determine whether this type of procedure is best for your restorative dentistry needs.

Dental Implants Are Painful

The most common question that our dentists receive from prospective implants patients is, “Do dental implants hurt?” The fear of pain is the biggest driving factor that keeps patients away from getting the restorative dental work that they need.

Fortunately, dental implants are not painful. The process is often simple and seamless, and is reported to be a lot less complicated than patients had initially thought. While different people heal at different paces, it is not a typically painful procedure for most.

Other than some bruising and initial swelling after the anesthetic wears off, there is no painful recovery process or harm done to the mouth.

Dental Implants Cost Too Much

Another common misconception that keeps people away from budgeting towards a dental implant is the idea that they are too costly. There are several budget options available through our Springfield dentists, as well as services available to help you cover the costs.

Another contributing factor to the overall affordability of dental implants comes from the fact that dental implants last forever. Most patients never need to replace their dental implants. They are built to last, and can feel natural in your mouth for years to come.

Implant Surgery Recovery Takes Too Long

Another false proclamation is that recovery from the procedure is too long-winded. Most of the time, patients return to normal feeling within a couple of days from the procedure. While there is a little bit of inflammation at first, the dentist can prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines to quell the pain and keep recovery on a fast track.

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.
