Dental implant surgery is one of the best ways to replace missing teeth, whether for cosmetic or functional reasons. Done by an experienced cosmetic dentist-periodontist team, the results of dental implants, abutments, and crowns are hard to match with other methods. This is why dental implants are increasingly in demand, as well as the dentists that say they offer them.
With so many general dentists offering dental implants it can be a challenge to find one that will hold themselves to the highest standards. Luckily there are signs of who can do the best job at placing dental implants.
If a dentist office has a periodontist on staff, like our dental office in DC, that’s a good sign. A periodontist specializes in the gums and tissue that the teeth are anchored in. This means they would have more experience and knowledge than a general dentist that happens to place implants. A periodontist, such as Dental Town DC’s Dr. Dong Park, has placed many dental implants over the years and as a result has specialized knowledge and experience.
While a periodontist may do the best job of placing a dental implant, a cosmetic dentist is more knowledgeable about the esthetics of the dental restoration that will be placed on the dental implants. Together, working and collaborating under the same roof, a periodontist and cosmetic dentist can help patients achieve an optimal result.
Undergoing dental implant treatment is a life changing experience, as a result you should expect only the best. If you want to set up a dental implant consultation at Dental Town DC, don’t hesitate to contact our DC dental office.
