Have you made the decision to receive dental implants to replace your missing teeth? If so, congratulations on making a wise decision that will not only restore your dental function, but your appearance and confidence as well. Although you’ve made one important decision regarding your oral health, there are still more to come, including choosing who you want to place your implants. While some general dentists have experience in implant placement, here are three reasons why you should select a qualified periodontist to help you with your dental implant needs.
Dr. Vikram Gandhi is a specially trained periodontist who is uniquely qualified to perform implant placement. Like other periodontists, he has undergone advanced training focused on the tissues that surround the teeth. These tissues include bone, gum and periodontal ligaments. General dentists do not receive this advanced training.
When you receive implant placement from a periodontist, you are more likely to have a good treatment outcome with superior aesthetic results. Since implants are a significant investment for most people, it’s important to give yourself the best chance of a good outcome by sticking with a specialist. Periodontists have a unique understanding of how bone and gum tissue heal. They can also treat the underlying cause of your tooth loss if it happened as the result of diseased gum tissue.
Choosing a specialist for your dental implant procedure is a great way to reduce your risk of complications, both during and after treatment. Studies show that specialists enjoy a higher success rate and a lower rate of complications when performing implant placement than general dentists.
