What to Look for in an Implant Dentist
When it comes to Dental Implants… Expertise Matters
The decision to get dental implants is an important one- it can potentially change your life for the better! Another decision that is just as important is choosing an implant dentist to perform your treatment. The differences among implant providers can be monumental!
Not all dentists are implant specialists.
If you were dealing with heart problems, would you go to a general practitioner? You’d likely see a cardiologist because they specialize in treating diseases of the cardiovascular system.
The same holds true for prosthodontists. A prosthodontist is a dentist that has chosen to complete three additional years of advanced training and education at an accredited prosthodontic graduate program. They specialize in treating complex dental and facial problems, including the restoration of missing teeth and jaw structures. Our very own Dr. Khal is a Board Certified Prosthodontist, an achievement not very many dentists obtain. He was also the recipient of the 2020 Top Dentists Award.
While implant dentistry may seem like a straightforward one-size-fits-all procedure, it’s not quite that simple. Each and every case is so different and unique, it takes skill and actual artistry to craft a dental restoration that fits in seamlessly with the rest of the teeth. Choosing a prosthodontist will guarantee your well-being and peace of mind as much as it will help facilitate the ultimate success of your dental implant.
With all of this in mind, here are a few questions to help determine which dental provider is right for you:
- Training – Did you receive training from an accredited dental school?
- Continued education – What kind of continued training and certification do you seek for dental implant placement?
- Frequency – How often do you perform implant placement?
- Recovery time – How long will it take to recover, and will I be without teeth for a period of time? Cost – How much does this treatment cost, and once completed, what are the costs associated with maintenance?
- Record keeping – Will you and your team provide a written copy of my treatment plan?
