When you are looking for a dental care provider to get your dental implants started, you may want to seek the care of a surgical specialist or a periodontist. Periodontists have the knowledge, skills and expertise that you need when you are considering this surgical procedure for your gums. Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross are experienced periodontists who offer dental implants to their patients. Here are five benefits that you get from choosing a specialist for this procedure.
1. Additional Surgical Training
Our periodontists have additional surgical training beyond their years at dental school. In order to become a periodontist, they have studied exclusively about the physiology of the gums and the structure of the jaw. He has also spent more time developing his skills in this type of dentistry.
2. More Experience in Implant Procedures
A periodontist is also more experienced in performing dental implant procedures. At our office, we do not offer many other oral health services, such as cleanings and cavity checks. That way we can simply focus on more advanced procedures.
3. Extra Knowledge of the Gums
When you are treated by a periodontist, you get an additional resource of knowledge about the nature and structure of your gums. During your dental implant procedure, you can feel more comfortable to know that your gums are in good hands.
4. Ability to Consult Your Primary Dentist
Our doctors can also form a partnership with your primary dental care provider. This allows you to get the benefit of a team approach to your dental care.
5. Access to More Resources and Specialized Knowledge
Finally, being a patient of a specialist can give you even more access to additional resources and treatment that provide less discomfort and fewer days of recovery. We may be able to give you more options for dental implants than a general dentist could provide.
