Deciding that dental implants are best for you is just the first step on your path: finding someone who can provide your implants is another matter entirely. Patients should be prepared with a list of questions as they look around for a fitting provider, and we’ve helped jump start your search with a list of questions below. Not only do we give you some guidance, but also Dr. Richard Assing or Dr. Brenton Assing could fit the bill here in Brandon, FL.
First things, first: ask yourself how far you’re willing to drive to get dental implants. Is the nearest provider you know of located an hour or more from home? Factor in how much you may need to spend on gas money to transport yourself there. There are even some patients who are willing to fly to a viable dental implant provider that’s recommended to them. You don’t necessarily need to go that far, but do your research before you drive off.

A good implant provider is also flexible, offering more than one way for a patient to pay for their procedure. Financing options such as accepting dental insurance, or third-party patient financing services, can make all the difference when it comes to finding an affordable dental implant treatment that fits your budget.
At Brandon Complete Dental Care, we accept most dental insurance providers, and work with patient financing services such as CareCredit and Springstone. We’ve found that our patients feel more comfortable and confident in pursuing treatment when they know that their dental implants are affordable.
Nowadays, it can be easy for any dentist to learn about dental implants, but there’s a big difference in learning about implants and having experience in placing them. Good dental implant providers not only attend courses that teach dental implants, but also continue their education as the field grows. New technology and techniques are introduced every year, so knowing a provider who stays up-to-date on that is beneficial to you and the success of your implant. Certifications from institutions such as the Misch Implant Institute or the International Congress of Oral Implantologists are one example.
Dr. Richard Assing and Dr. Brenton Assing are a father and son duo experienced in implants and prosthodontics. Dr. Richard Assing is also a graduate of the Misch Implant Institute, a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral Implantology, and is an active member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
Don’t be afraid to ask the provider about their success rate for implants. They may also have before and after photos of successful patients, or testimonials from real patients who enjoyed their experience. Ask them about how many implants they place per year, how many patients have received implants, or how long their average dental implant process takes. These questions could influence who you choose as a provider.
This last one may seem superficial, but it’s important that you also get along with your implant provider. Do they have good chairside manners? Is their staff civil and willing to answer your questions? Is their office clean and well-maintained? These are signs of a well-established and cohesive practice, and will reflect in how your dental implant process is handled.
Don’t hesitate to fill that gap in your smile! Invest in dental implants, the number one recommended way to solve your tooth loss. Consult with Dr. Richard Assing and Dr. Brenton Assing, to find out if you qualify, and if our practice is a right match for you.
