The process of implanting a dental implant requires a high level of skill and experience to do it correctly. Sometimes a dentist may be only diagnosing and coordinating the placement of the implant, while an oral surgeon actually implants the replacement tooth. However, some dentists, like Dr. Ahrabi of Oakton Dental center in Oakton VA complete the entire process from start to finish. Either way, it is vital to carefully choose the dentist who will do your implant. When a dental implant is placed by a knowledgeable and skilled professional like Dr. Ahrabi and followed up by excellent oral hygiene, your dental implant can last a lifetime.
Choosing a Dental Implant Dentist
With such an important venture for the future of your smile, you’ll want to be sure you are investing in an implant dentist you can trust. Dental implant surgery is not considered its’ own specialty like orthodontics or periodontics; so when choosing a dentist to place your implant it is important to research their level of training and experience with implant dentistry.
When searching for a dental implant dentist, consider the following:
- How long has the dentist been performing dental implant procedures?
- How much training has the dentist had in implant dentistry?
- How many previous dental implant patients have been installed successfully?
- Are there before/after pictures available from previous patients?
- How long will the entire procedure take?
- Does the dental implant dentist have high ratings and positive reviews on patient review sites?
Along with taking into consideration the answers to the questions above, it is critical to note whether your dental implant dentist seems willing to listen to your needs and opinions and take the time to explain the options and procedure to you in understandable terms. This is vital to ensuring that you can make educated choices for your treatment.
