Choosing your Implant Dentist
Why your Implant Dentist Matters
When placed successfully, dental implants can provide you with a long-term replacement to missing teeth. However, there are several factors that can impact the longevity of your treatment. In particular, implant placement can determine the long-term success of the restoration. As a result, it is highly recommended that patients visit a professional with specialized training in the field, such as a periodontist.
Why Visit a Periodontist for Dental Implants
In addition to completing dental school, periodontists go above and beyond educationally, pursuing advanced training that focuses on the health of the gums. As a result, periodontists are uniquely trained to address any number of gum-related issues and are especially qualified to provide dental implants and implant based restorations to patients.
At Arch Street Dental, we work with local periodontists to ensure our patients receive the best implant treatments for their smile. Following your treatment consultation with Dr. Eka, dental implant candidates meet with our visiting periodontist to determine the condition of the gums and supportive bone. During this visit, impressions and high quality X-Rays will be taken of your smile, allowing our team to create a customized placement strategy for your dental implants. In the event additional treatments such as bone grafting or sinus lifts are necessary, we will add in the necessary procedures to your eventual implant treatment plan.
This collaboration between the periodontist and your dentist provides patients with not only the advantage of a successful treatment, but also the benefit of continuous care throughout the recovery process. As our Boston dentist coordinates the restoration portion of your treatment, patients can rest assured that their implant treatment plan is uniquely designed to address their dental needs.
