Dental Implants

Dental Implants For Successful Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are a highly durable and long lasting solution for tooth loss.  They are designed to be permanently attached to the bone in your jaw and if properly maintained will last you a lifetime. They look just like your real teeth and no one will even be aware that you have dental implants.  Almost everyone is a good candidate for a dental implant procedure if their gums are in good health and they can safely handle the necessary oral surgery.

The only drawback to dental implants is the length of time that the procedure takes from start to finish.  This can be 3 to 6 months depending on how long the healing process takes.  Certain medical conditions can also effect the chances that a dental implant procedure will be successful.  Patients who suffer from diabetes, alcoholism, or gum disease and those patients that smoke have a lower success rate and tend to take a longer time to complete the process.

The Dental Implants itself will act as the root of your new tooth.  It is made out of titanium and is inserted through the root of the tooth that it is replacing and down into the bone.  Your dentist will make a small incision in your gum to gain access while you are under a local anesthesia.  After the implant is inserted you will need time to heal and allow the bone and implant to fuse together.  Once you have healed your dentist will attach a small post to the titanium root that will hold your tooth tooth snuggly in place.  A new crown will then be installed that has been designed to fit in with your remaining real teeth or other implants.  This new crown can be made to any shape and have any color so that it will be a perfect match and no one will ever know it isn’t a real tooth.

Dental implants look and feel like real teeth and are designed to be permanent.  This eliminates many of the embarrassing problems that patients experience with other solutions such as dentures.  Implants provide a greater comfort level and their permanent nature give patients a confidence boost.  Speech problems caused by slipping dentures are also avoided because implants are installed as individual teeth.  This single tooth method also leads to better oral hygiene as it easier to get between the teeth and keep them clean.  Most people with dental implants completely forget that the implants are even there.

Is the Michigan Dental Assisting School at Bright Side Dental worth it?

Question by : Is the Michigan Dental Assisting School at Bright Side Dental worth it?
It’s a 10 week program. The tuition is $ 3,500 due up front. I’m thinking about signing up for their application for their credit card so I can make monthly payments, but I doubt I’ll get approved. I have my bachelors degree in speech pathology but I only applied to one school for the masters program and I did not get in. I applied to dental assistant jobs that say they will train the right person, but unfortunately, I received no calls. I’m just trying to find a decent paying job so I can move out of my parents house and live on my own. Anyway, they say DA’s make 29-37,000 in Michigan. I have to pay back the money they loan me on their credit card in 18 months at 14.9% interest. I’m not good with numbers and calculations, but should I just apply anyway?

Please be aware that their website doesn’t mention anything about being accredited in any way (not even nationally accredited which is basically worthless 🙂 In addition, the school is NOT accredited by the “American dental association”.

Please also instead consider the more affordable (and usually more reputable) *community college* and/or the *state-public university* (or even the county vo-tech adult school) as long as the program is accredited within the industry. Just an fyi that “American public university” is a for-profit school.

For U.S. colleges (though please still forgo those for-profit schools):

Before considering dental assistant training, please look through some dental textbooks such as those found at the local community college library that offers a dental assistant/dental hygiene program or a local dental/medical school library. Some patients may have severe dental disease which can be difficult for some to handle.

To search for an accredited dental assistant program:

With regard to moving out, you may be aware, but saving up one’s money is crucial before having enough to get one’s own place 🙂 How about working out a budget of your monthly expenses vs. how much money you have to work with, at this point.

Answer by jannsody
You’re smart to want to avoid those private For-profit schools such as heald, Everest, devry and Carrington. If the local community college (or county vo-tech adult school for dental assistant) has an accredited program from the “American dental association”, those schools are usually more affordable and reputable.

Before taking pre-req courses for dental assisting or dental hygiene, please look through and peruse some dental textbooks such as those found at the local community college library that offers DA or DH or the local dental/medical school library. Some patients may have severe dental disease which may be tough for some to handle. If you haven’t done some job shadowing, please find out about that as well.

For accredited programs in DA or DH:
