Benefits Of Having Implants Placed By Periodontist

Posted on Mar 10, 2015 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

A particular area of expertise in my specialty of Periodontics is the placement of Dental Implants. As a specialist trained to treat all tissues in the mouth and supporting structures of teeth, we have a unique level of knowledge for diagnosis and treatment in these areas. Because Dental Implants are placed in the upper or lower jaw bone, just under oral tissues, our involvement gives you a ‘leg up’ for a successful outcome.

Precision placement of Dental Implants is important to ensure you have a successful outcome. When an implant is placed in insufficient bone, at an incorrect angle, or too close to a nerve or sinus cavity your odds for implant failure increase greatly.

Additionally, Periodontists are particularly careful with gum tissue. By being ‘respectful’ of the gums and minimizing incisions when possible, your healing time is less with greater post-treatment comfort. When an implant site can heal in less time, the chances for infection greatly decrease.

Everyone wants to enjoy a successful outcome with any treatment. They also want to have a rapid recovery with minimal discomfort. Having your implants placed by a Periodontal specialist can help greatly.
