5 Reasons Why You Should See an Implant Dentist

Dental Implants 3D images

Dental implants are one of the most commonly recommended restorative dental treatments for replacing missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots made from titanium screws implanted in the jaw that are used to support a crown, bridge, or denture. Out of all the restorative treatments available for replacing missing teeth, dental implants can restore the best aesthetics and function, and are extremely long lasting. 

However, because they are placed in the jawbone, they do require a minor oral surgery. Like any other dental procedure, it is important to consider the qualifications of the dentist who will be placing the implants. While many general dentists are capable of placing implants, there are some dentists who focus exclusively on dental implants, known as dental implant dentists. If you are interested in dental implants, here are five of the top reasons why you should see an implant dentist: 


For starters, implant dentists have more experience placing dental implants than general dentists because their practice only sees dental implant clients. This means that they have placed implants in a variety of different patients and are better able to adapt their technique.  Additionally, many implant dentists are members of professional organizations that offer post-doctoral training to keep them up to date on developments in implant dentistry. This allows them to provide their clients with the best treatment possible. 

Faster Recovery

The experience of implant dentists allows them to precisely place dental implants while minimizing trauma to the surrounding structures. They are also usually able to complete the procedure in less time, however this can vary. Ultimately, the result is a faster recovery period due to minimal trauma. This also means that there is also less postoperative discomfort. 

Can Treat Complicated Cases

With so many new improvements in implant dentistry, implant dentists often have a variety of techniques that they can use for dental implant placement. Even if you have been told you are not a good candidate for dental implants, your local implant dentist may offer a technique that will work for you. However, it is necessary to schedule a consultation to determine if dental implants are right for you. 

Greater Chances of Success

Having your dental implants placed by an implant dentist who has advanced training and placed implants almost daily, means that you will have a greater chance of implant success and a decreased risk for postoperative infection or implant failure. However, implant success is also highly dependent on patient cooperation during the recovery period. 

You Get What You Pay For

Implant dentists offer you extensive experience, shorter recovery, and a greater chance of implant success. When you make the decision to see an implant dentist, these are the benefits that are reflected in the cost. In some cases, implant dentists may cost more than a general dentist, however this varies depending on the practice and location. The good news is that many implant dentists still accept dental insurance and some even offer payment plans to help with the total cost.
