How to Find a Dental Implant Specialist

dca-blog_dentist-selection-family

Do you need to get dental implants but don’t know where to find the best dentist? This is a very important choice because your dental implant specialist will affect the success of your surgery. To find the expert that’s best for you, chew over these bright ideas.

Look for a Dental Implant Dentist

Not every dentist is a dental implant specialist.In fact,the only specialty recognized by the American Dental Association to deal with restoring dental implants is called “prosthodontics.” Insist on a certified prosthodontist for your dental implants.

Years of Experience

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

Specialized Training 


Besides graduating from dental school, prosthodontists complete three full years of extensive specialized training. If you need a dental implant specialist, these are the experts recommended by other dentists.

Full Knowledge of Dental Implants

Unfortunately, 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.

Location of Dental Laboratory

Find out where the laboratory is 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’s crucial that there is clear, continuous communication between the dental implant specialist and the dental lab, try to select a prosthodontist with an in-office laboratory to ensure that your restoration is fabricated under their direct supervision.
