How to Choose an Implant Dentist

woman at dentist smile consultation greenwood in restorative dentistryThe embedding of a dental implant requires a high level of skill and experience to do it correctly. Sometimes a dentist may only be diagnosing and coordinating the placement of the dental implant, while an oral surgeon actually implants the replacement tooth. Some dentists, like Dr. David Goris of Beautiful Smiles in Greenwood IN, are involved hands on in the entire procedure from start to finish. In either case, it is pivotal to carefully choose your dental implant dentist. When a dental implant is placed by a knowledgeable and skilled professional like Dr. Goris and followed up by excellent oral hygiene, your dental implant can last a lifetime.

Choosing an Implant Dentist

For an important expenditure towards the future of your smile such as this, you’ll want to make sure you are investing in a dental implant dentist you can trust. Installation of dental implants is not considered its’ own specialty; so it’s vital to learn about their level of training and experience with implant dentistry when choosing a dentist to install your implant.

When searching for a dental implant dentist, consider the following:

  • How long has your dentist been performing dental implant procedures?
  • How much training has the dentist had in implant dentistry?
  • How many previous dental implant patients has the dentist installed successfully?
  • How long will the entire procedure take?
  • Does the dental implant dentist have high ratings and positive reviews on patient review sites?

Along with contemplating the answers to the questions above, it is important that you feel your dentist is willing to listen to your needs and opinions and takes the time to explain the options and dental implant procedure to you in coherent terms. This is vital to ensuring that you can actively participate in treatment decisions.
