3 Reasons to Choose a Specialist for Your Dental Implants

If you’re considering dental implants, it’s a good idea to find an implant surgeon that specializes in this treatment. Dental implants are the only permanent way to replace your failing or missing teeth, so having treatment completed correctly the first time is probably high on your list of must-haves. Seeking out a general dentist may not be the best idea, considering specialists such as periodontists and oral surgeons have much more qualified to complete dental surgeries. Here are three reasons why choosing a specialist for your dental implants is a good idea:

  1. Specialists are uniquely trained in dental implants.

Implant surgeons like Dr. Dan Holtzclaw and our team of doctors have advanced training in all procedures involved in replacing failing or missing teeth, and especially in dental implants. Our team has placed over 25,000 dental implants and over 2,000 full arch cases with a success rate of over 99 percent!

  1. Specialists have more experience in dental surgeries.

Specialists like periodontists and oral surgeons spend many additional years training and have vastly more experience than general dentists in placing dental implants, even before they begin practicing. Additionally, they have the in-depth knowledge gained from further education to treat patients with more serious conditions such as advanced periodontal disease or severe jawbone loss.

  1. Specialists have the skill and technology for superior results.

The advanced level of training and experience of implant surgeons like Dr. Holtzclaw give them the skills necessary to provide predictable and long-lasting treatments. Similarly, these specialists also often leverage incredibly advanced technologies and equipment. Our team uses Zirkonzahn™ scanning, design, and milling technology for every treatment to ensure the highest level of precision and predictability of your care.
