Why Choose a Specialist for Your Tooth Implant?

There are many benefits to getting a tooth implant. Patients who choose this option for addressing missing or damaged teeth can make their smile natural-looking and attractive. Dental implants are longer lasting solutions than other options, such as fixed and removable devices. Also, because of the strength provided by a tooth implant, patients may have the freedom to eat a wider range of foods.

As a surgical procedure, however, a tooth implant is more involved than other options. That’s why it’s so important to work with an experienced provider. For many patients, this means choosing a Prosthodontist.


What is a Prosthodontist?

A Prosthodontist is a specialist dentist recognized by the American College of Prosthodontists and the American Dental Association. Prosthodontists specialize in the cosmetic restoration and replacement of teeth, and typically have three to four additional years of post-graduate training beyond dental school.

One important difference for patients to contemplate when considering dental tooth implants: cosmetic dentists are not all prosthodontists. Only dentists who completed additional study and achieved recognition by the ADA have this distinction.

Before choosing a dentist for a tooth implant, patients should find out whether the provider gives the quality of care they require. Just because a dentist offers a “smile makeover”, or a complex aesthetic procedure, doesn’t mean that he or she is the right dentist for their needs.
