Dental Implants -- Dentist or Oral Surgeon

Posted by: penndental  (4 years ago)
My mother lost a tooth and the post came out with the crown so there was nothing to reattach it to. She is having a dental implant put in now and she was going to go to the dentist for it but she just decided that she thought an oral surgeon would be better for her.

What do you all feel are the pro's and con's of having a dentist provide dental implants? What about an oral surgeon?

GPs, periodontists, and oral surgeons all do implants. It is usually less expensive for GPs to do it. Personally, I refer to oral surgeons for only the toughest cases, like those that involve sinus lifts.

Dental Implants


As we age, we tend to lose teeth due to external injury, some dental disease, or simply daily tear. Missing teeth not only bring unwanted appearance to a person’s facial appearance, but also bring a negative effect on the person’s confidence and self-esteem.
With the latest developments in implant dentistry, the people who were unhappy with their missing one, two or several teeth, no longer have to blame their fate and accept lifetime of embarrassment and inconvenience of wearing painful dentures.
Dental implants, sturdy titanium posts provides an attractive solution to all these problems as they are anchored directly into the jawbone and topped with realistic replacement teeth, provide the security and usability of permanently placed teeth.

Extensive experience, the technology and facilities used, and the way the dental implantologist deals with patients can have a huge impact on the success of a dental implant treatment. I read on the This is Dentistry site that these factors, along with the dental implant system to be used, are very important in the overall treatment's long-term success.

Oral surgeons are for extreme cases of oral problems and are more expensive. They consider facial structure problems caused by lost teeth.

Dentists providing dental implants are more affordable. However, if they are experienced enough, they may be able to fix the problem without the need for surgery.

I suggest it is best to consult with both so you will have a competent medical advice to base your decision on.
