What to Ask Before You Get Dental Implants
Why Should Patients Find an Oral Surgeon for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are treatment solutions with the potential to transform patients’ oral health. Not only do these implants replace missing teeth with beautiful, durable new crowns, but implants also can preserve jaw bone density and prevent additional tooth loss. Biting, chewing, speaking, and smiling become effortless and natural tasks that can be enjoyed without the self-consciousness that sometimes accompanies denture use. Best of all, dental implants provide a permanent solution that is natural looking, comfortable, and easy to maintain.
What Makes an Oral Surgeon Different?
Oral surgeons are distinguished by several factors. These include:
- Surgical training in hospital-based residency programs
- Training in general surgery, anesthesiology, and internal medicine, along with other subspecialties, such as emergency medicine and plastic surgery
- Four to six additional years of training and education
- The qualifications to diagnose and direct surgical treatments of the gums, teeth, mouth, neck, and head
Oral surgeons bring greater experience, expertise, and professional insight to every patient they treat.

What are the Surgical Aspects of Dental Implant Treatment?
Dental implants consist primarily of a visible crown and a titanium post that supports the crown. The posts are set into strategic points of the patient’s jaw as determined by the oral surgeon during initial evaluations. Healing takes place over a number of weeks, giving the titanium posts time to become firmly anchored into the bone. Once the patient’s healing has progressed to the right stage, the permanent crowns can be fitted.
A Higher Degree of Excellence.
Oral surgeons bring many years of training and professional experience to the practice. Patients who desire a higher care standard when considering dental implants should choose an oral surgeon that specializes in All-on-4 implants.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Dental implants can hold a dental crown, bridge or denture, just like roots hold your natural teeth in place. The unique, root-like shape of the tapered tooth implants we use provide superb stability, and maintain bone structure as well as facial shape.
