What questions should I ask a full mouth reconstruction dentist?

The main areas of concern are going to be with the dentist him/herself: what level of experience has he/she got? How many years have they been in practice? How successful is this procedure?

You want to determine their level of competency and experience before proceeding with what can be an expensive affair.

So, there are questions you can ask in regard to the dentist and ones which are related to the procedure. Here is a list of suggested questions which may help in that all important meeting:

  • Do you have professional accreditation? Are you a member of a professional organisation?
  • How many years have you been performing this procedure?
  • How many of these procedures do you carry out in a year?
  • What are your success rates for this treatment?
  • How will you plan my treatment?
  • How long will my treatment plan take?
  • What can I expect from this treatment?
  • Is it likely to be painful?
  • What type of anaesthetic will I have?
  • How much will this all cost?
  • Can I get any help towards paying for this?
  • What are the chances of something going wrong?
  • If something does go wrong then do I have to pay extra?
  • Is there an aftercare service/follow up visits?

It’s a good idea to go in with a list of questions and make a note of the answers as you ask them. The meeting you have with the dentist is your chance to ‘interview’ them and to see if they and the clinic are reputable.
