In the first part of this 2 part series we explored some important considerations when choosing a dentist that is right for you and your Dental Implant Needs. Choosing the right dentist to place and restore your dental implants can mean the difference between long-term success and significant problems
The Right Training.
When choosing a dentist for your dental implant needs there are many things to consider. The right training is one of them. It is important to determine if the dentist has had additional training in restoring dental implants as well as understanding the surgical techniques necessary for success. It takes time and experience to become proficient in planning and restoring dental implants. A thorough understanding of the different implants systems available and their proper use in each situation is necessary to achieve the highest level of success.
The Right Credentials.
One way to determine the experience level of the dentist is whether they have presented seminars or lectured on treatment with dental implants. Additionally, have they published articles in scientific journals? The ability to lecture and publish on dental implant treatment is an indication of the level of expertise the dentist has achieved and an expression of the depth of knowledge and experience the dentist possesses.
The Right Results.
Having the right training, possessing the right credentials and having the knowledge and experience treating patients with dental implants will result in many successful outcomes. An experienced implant dentist should be able to show you before and after results of dental implant cases they completed. With examples of before and after cases they will be able to show you results typical for situations like yours.
Other good sources.
One of the best recourses to determine if you have chosen the right dentist for your implant needs is to consult with a surgical specialist. A specialist like a Periodontist or Oral Surgeon who places dental implants for many different dentists is a great resource. They have the ability to work with multiple dentists and often know who is the best dentist for your situation and to restore your dental implants. It is this “team approach” that allows for long term success.
