Dental Implantology
(30334 Views)
Implantology is the science concerning dental implants, i.e., artificial dental roots. Implantology is a branch of oral surgery. The dentist who is specialized in this subject is called an implant surgeon or implantologist. What should you be aware of before an implantation? First and foremost ask your dentist how long he has been working in this field and how often he performs implantations. This is very important, since unfortunately there are multiple types of courses & trainings on the market for dentists that teach different aspects of Implantology. The quality of the dental work can be very different depending on the surgical implant education your doctor has had. Secondly, make sure to be examined thoroughly: There should be no periodontosis, bad root treatments, gum inflammation, leak fillings or caries in the oral cavity. All this work should be treated and healed before the insertion of dental implants. A serious implantologist will also always take you though the work steps. If these prerequisites are not fully fulfilled, we highly recommend you seek another opinion.

An implant, which replaces a missing tooth root is placed by an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and the dentist then attaches the abutment (connection from implant for crown to attach to) and has a crown made. The abutment -crown cost is actually more than the implant procedure. - Steven Koos DDS, MD

The cartooned doctors are a little freaky looking and kinda remind me of Anime, not sure why they use them. In response to violet78, the success rate is better than with any other medical procedure - 98%.
