Finding a Qualified Dental Implant Dentist

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

The quality of your dental implants is based on the quality of your dentist. You want a dental implant specialist who’s proficient in their craft, as well as perfect with your case. That’s why you must do lots of research and be confident that your specialist has all these appealing attributes.

Insist on a Dental Implant Specialist

Not all dentists are specialists in dental implants.According to the American Dental Association,the only specialty that is recognized to perform restorations with dental implants is called prosthodontics. A prosthodontist must complete an additional three years of extensive training in dental implants after graduating from dental school. If you need a dental implant specialist, these are the experts recommended by other dentists.

For the best dental implants, you should insist on working with a dental implant specialist and be sure to ask these questions:

  • How Many Years Have You Been Working with Dental Implants?

It takes a long time to be polished and proficient in placing dental implants, so find out how long the dental implant specialist has been working with them. And the longer the dentist has been involved, the greater chance of their experience with a situation like yours.

  • Are You Trained in Different Types of Dental Implants?

Surprisingly, some dental implant dentists are only trained in a single, specific implant system regardless of whether it’s the best option for the patient. It’s much wiser to select a prosthodontist who offers an array of different systems and will select the right dental implants for your personal needs.

  • Where is Your Dental Lab Located?

Ask about the location of the laboratory that will be fabricating your dental implants. Some prosthodontists have full dental laboratories in their offices, while others work with an off-site lab. Since it is critical that there is clear and continual communication between the dental implant specialist and the lab to create a precise restoration, try to select a prosthodontist with an in-office laboratory to ensure that your dental implants are made under the dentist’s direct supervision.
