How to Find an Implant Dentist
If you're looking for an implant dentist, there are some things you need to consider before making your final selection. On this page, we've outlined some of the factors you should keep in mind when exploring your options.
Questions to Ask Your Prospective Surgeon
- Where did you complete your studies?
- How often do you place implants?
- Do you offer a guarantee for your work?
Because of the complicated nature of implant surgery, you should choose a specialist who not only studied at a well-regarded school but who also places implants on a routine basis. If your doctor places fewer than 15-20 implants per month, you may want to consider choosing another doctor. Repetition is vital for building experience.
Well-trained surgeons also offer a written guarantee for their work. A truly experienced doctor will know when it's best not to place an implant, thereby sparing the patient a bad experience.
Signs to Watch Out For
Be careful of surgeons who advertise constantly. Also, be aware of prices that seem too good to be true. You don't want to pick the cheapest surgeon you can find because the quality of their work may be reflected in their prices.
