A recent study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association (July 2014) confirms that dental implants placed by surgeons suggest higher success rates than those placed in a general dental office.
We emphasize that dental implant placement is a surgical procedure that is best managed by a properly trained Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon. Unfortunately, I do see many complications when the surgery is not planned/conducted properly.
This study confirms that there is a significant statistical difference in implant success when placed by a specialist compared with a general practitioner. Please make sure you see us for your dental implant work to optimize your success!!
