Dental implants are highly regarded as the best long-term solution for restoring your natural smile and bite following a tooth extraction. Because they look, feel, and behave like normal teeth, it’s easy to see why dental implants are a popular choice and a top recommendation among patients and periodontists alike.
However, dental implants are a very complex procedure that takes place over a number of office visits. Placement requires a very high level of precision in order to ensure successful long-term outcomes. To achieve the best possible results, it’s important to turn to an experienced periodontist who is not only an expert at their craft but also one who puts in the time and effort to educate you about the procedure and make you comfortable every step of the way.
Below, we’ll review exactly what a periodontist is able to do for you, and why Ormond Beach Perio is your best choice for dental implants in the Ormond Beach, Florida area.
What Is A Periodontist?
Periodontists are dentists that specialize in treating periodontal (gum) disease, jawbone health, and the placement of dental implants. Some also perform a variety of procedures including bone grafts, gum tissue grafts, surgical extractions, laser periodontal treatment, and even sinus augmentation. Dentists often refer patients to periodontists to treat severe gum disease or to perform complex oral procedures. In order to manage pain, many periodontist practices are able to administer local or general anesthesia.
To become a periodontist one must undergo extensive education and training. To start, a periodontist must complete a four-year undergraduate college program, and then go on to graduate from an accredited dental school with a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DDM) degree. Afterward, they must complete an ADA-accredited periodontal residency program, which can last anywhere from four to seven years. Training and education don’t stop there — a periodontist must also become recertified every six years by completing additional education and training.
Why Choose Ormond Beach Perio For Dental Implants
Because dental implants are such a large investment, choosing the right periodontist is an important decision. You want to minimize the chance of complications and also ensure your implants last a lifetime. However, experience isn’t the only criteria to look for when selecting a periodontist. You also want to be treated by a provider who makes you feel comfortable and who can communicate effectively.
If you’re searching for a periodontist for dental implants in Central Florida, here are three reasons why Ormond Beach Perio is your best choice:
1. We Invest In The Best Technology Around
Technology is constantly improving the medical industry. In order to provide the best possible care, we invest in the latest and best dental treatment technology around. Because Ormond Beach Periodontics uses advanced imaging and diagnostic technology, we’re able to diagnose problems and place dental implants with incredible precision.
While traditional dental x-rays provide a two-dimensional view of a patient’s teeth, a three-dimensional view can be significantly more helpful when it comes to tooth replacement procedures. As a result, Ormond Beach Perio uses a CT scanner called Gendex CB-500HD to obtain a 3D image of the teeth, jaw, and gums. Not only does this view help us better evaluate a tooth’s chance of survival, but it also makes it easy to determine if a jawbone is stable enough to support dental implants. This enables us to make more accurate decisions when it comes to bone grafting prerequisites. It also provides us with the right information to craft the most effective treatment plan for our patients
2. We Do Everything Possible To Make Patients Comfortable
