WHY IS OUR OFFICE THE BEST CHOICE FOR DENTAL IMPLANTS AND PERIODONTAL SURGERY?

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHO TO PLACE YOUR DENTAL
IMPLANTS?

  • A Periodontal Surgeon is the only dental surgeon specialized to place your dental implants, keep them healthy and follow up with you throughout the life of your implants.
  • In medicine, it is critical and highly preferred for specialists to do specialty treatment, especially surgery. For example, having a baby delivered by an OBGYN Specialist is highly preferred rather than a general practice physician.
  • It is critical and highly preferred to have a Periodonal Surgeon rather than a general dentist place your dental implants.
  • Since most teeth are lost due to gum disease, it is wise to have the Periodontal Surgeon do the tooth removal, treat the gum disease, do the bone grafting, do the soft tissue grafting, and also place the dental implants at the same time if indicated.
  • It is best to have a Periodontal Surgeon not only place the implant but also follow it up over the years to make sure it stays healthy.
