How to Choose a Dentist for Dental Implant Treatment?

by Neville Jones Dental Services

Advancement in dentistry within the last two decades has brought unbelievable use of technology. People are trusting dental implants for replacing their missing teeth probably because of the wonderful success rate of 95%. It has become a treatment of choice for people who feel imperfect due to their lost tooth.

When it comes to choosing the right implant dentist near me, you should always make a wise decision. The decision can impact your dental health as well as the quality of life. Therefore, you would never want to choose just any other dentist for this type of treatment.

However, if you believe in facts, any general dentist can perform implant treatment as they don’t require formal surgical training or certification in the field to be become accredited. Both oral surgeons and periodontists often specialize in dental implant placement. But, this does not mean to hire any dentist. Here are a few helpful tips to choose a reliable dentist for implants.


Somerset Dental implants can be placed by a periodontist or a maxillofacial surgeon who has completed specialized training of implant dentistry. They are normally referred to as ‘implantologists’. As per the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), a general dentist has to complete at least 300 hours of training in the field or obtain a degree related to the same subject. They also need to attain a written and oral examination.


You can trust a dental practitioner who has good experience of the treatment. He would be able to provide you some top-notch dental care Somerset. Sadly, a newer dentist is something you can’t really bank on because he might not have the experience to lower the complications as all he has done in the past was on a dummy plastic jawbone and not on a human. Dental implants are surgically secured in the jawbone and there is always a huge demand for experience when it’s about doing it safely.


If the dentist can't prove that he has happy patients then what's to say that you will be happy with your treatment? This is a good way of showing what other patients say about the dentist, and also a good way of seeing if he has treated someone in a similar position to your own. Ask the dentist to show you signed written letters, or maybe even videos of grateful patients.

Aftercare service

Choosing a dentist who can’t offer required dental care after dental implant treatment can lead to many problems. Make sure your dental professional is around there to assist you on phone or in office and provide you guidance for taking care of implant.
