Your choice of dental implant dentist is the most critical decision that can make the difference between a successful treatment and a dental implant failure. The most important factors to consider when searching to find a dental implant dentist include:
When you have to choose the dental professional to perform your dental implants surgery procedure, the major key factor is nothing else than experience. Find someone that has experience in dental implants with a post graduate qualifications in implant dentistry or a specialty area of dentistry, often a Prosthodontist, Maxillofacial Surgeon or Periodontists. Look for an implant dentist in your area who practices extensively in dental implants.
Adequate post-doctoral training is important for a dental implant dentist. Implant training programs cover a detailed theory syllabus, as well as supervised surgical training and mentoring. Dental implants is a dynamic field of dentistry and dental implant dentists need continuous education on new materials and techniques. Look for a dentist that has implant qualifications in a reputable university and better still if they teach implants to other dentists. When in doubt conduct a search on the internet on their qualifications and implant lectures given.
Certification for dental implants has a meaning only in those countries that have strict legal requirements for implant dentists. Otherwise scientific affiliations in local ‘Implatology’ related societies might not provide adequate evidence on the dentist’s training or expertise on dental implants. A good implant dentist will be affiliated to a reputable university.
A good implant dentist will be able to show you their earliest cases of implants (at least more than 7 years) placed by them and provide their implant success rates. They should also be able to demonstrate the number of implants placed by them and the wide variety of implants placed. Ask them about the implant system being used and warranties on implants.
Placing dental implants is one of the most expensive dental procedures, due to the professional expertise required by the performing dental implant dentist, and the high tech materials used for the implants. Unfortunately you should not expect to find significant discounts for low cost dental implants without compromising quality.
Heavily discounted prices on dental implants may be an indication of a less experienced dentist trying to establish one's self or of using lower quality materials. A good dental implant dentist should provide a comprehensive written treatment plan for you.
