Selecting a doctor to perform dental implants can be a difficult task as the demand for dental implants rise, patients often turn to their regular dentist for implants. While any dentist with a dental degree can legally place an implant, should they? Dental implants are a difficult procedure requiring the right training and experience. Dental implant specialists will go beyond dental school to learn implant treatment, which can take upwards of three years to complete.
How Long Have You Been Placing Dental Implants?
Experience is essential when it comes to dental implants. Dr. Hendricks has years of experience placing dental implants. Following dental school, he received advanced training and completed a 13 month residency with a private practice, teaching dental implant procedures. With a very narrow focus on dental implants, you know you are in good hands with Dr. Hendricks.
How Many Dental Implants Have You Placed?
There is a large difference between a dentist placing 15 implants and 1500. Dream Dental Implant Center specializes solely on dental implants and Dr. Hendricks has placed thousands of dental implants.
What Does the Initial Examination and Diagnosis Include?
As you work with a dental implant specialist to reshape your mouth, it is important to understand how the entire process will work. The initial examination will discuss teeth that have been removed, or teeth that need to be removed. An overall examination will discuss the health of your gums and will discuss the bone density following a complete bite evaluation. Our intimal examination and diagnosis will discuss multiple treatments and outcomes from your procedure.
