"Updated: So I originally left just a one star review but since they want to come after me for leaving a one star review by trying to make me look bad by looking up my name in their system and saying oh well you aren’t a patient call of you wana deal with this privately. I left the review for my niece!! Like her and I don’t even have the same last name lol of course you can’t find me. I’m not a 15 year old girl 😂 She is in your system. Not me. So just know if you don’t write a 5 star review they will look up your private info in their system and come after you so that way they don’t look bad. I’m even more angry than I was to begin with. I’m sure they will definitely come after me even more now just wanted to let y’all know. There is your fake 5 star review guys ☺️"- V.T. / Google / Jul 19, 2019

"This was my first time back to a dentist in over ten years. As a child I was taken to a clinic and a painful mistake was made which terrified me even to this day! I let them know up front before I came to my appointment. The staff was all extremely nice and polite about my fear! They made sure to explain every single thing they did to help keep me calm. Even after battling with my insurance for 45 minutes not one single employee was rude to me! I will happily be returning for all my dental needs and referring anyone I can to this office!"- J.P. / Google / Jun 14, 2019
What to Expect
Before a dental implant is placed, a thorough examination will be conducted by our dentists to assess the strength and health of the jawbone and gums. If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, digital X-rays and physical impressions will help our dentists to determine the ideal location for the dental implants during the procedure. The individual will be put under local anesthesia and sedation if needed while our dentists place the titanium post into the jawbone. Over the course of 3 - 6 months, the bone and implant will fuse while the bone heals and once the dental implant is secure, the false tooth or teeth can be attached to the dental implant using a connector. Our dentists will adjust the dental implant and false teeth for a snug and secure fit.
Most patients experience little to no discomfort following their dental implants are finished, however some patients may have short-term soreness and discomfort that can be relieved using an over-the-counter pain killer, such as Tylenol® or aspirin. To prolong the life of dental implants, patients should have a good home dental care routine that includes brushing, flossing, and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash. Regular appointments at DentalWorks - Fairlawn in Fairlawn, OH for dental cleanings and oral exams are also important to implant care. Dental implants can last a long time with correct care, however dental implants will eventually require repairs or replacement.
If dental implants are considered medically necessary, the patient's dental insurance plan might pay for some or most of the costs. However, elective dental implants are ordinarily not paid by insurance plans. During the patient's consultation, the office staff of DentalWorks - Fairlawn can confirm their insurance coverage and discuss payment methods and financing available through our office.
