Dental implants have a striking long-term success rate of 98 percent or better in many current published studies, particularly when patients practice good dental hygiene and preventative care after their implant procedure.

With anesthesia and sedatives, the vast majority of dental implant patients experience little to no discomfort from the procedure.

Most dental implant patients say they heal quickly from the procedure and find their new teeth to be attractive, durable, and indistinguishable from natural teeth. Some dental implant patients can even attest to living with implants for decades without the need to repair or replace them.

Six areas that set experienced or focused implant dentists apart from other dentists:

  • Implant focused dentists are trained to perform specific oral surgical procedures and have amassed significant practical experience in this area.
  • Implant focused dentists can evaluate your current dental health and then determine which type of implants are most appropriate.
  • During your consultation, an implant-focused dentist will be ready to answer your questions and respond to any concerns you may have about the procedure.
  • In order to satisfy the strict qualifications required to perform dental implant surgery, implant-focused dentists are affiliated with and/or accredited by professional implant dentistry organizations including the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), the International Congress of Oral Implantologist (ICOI), and the American Board of Oral Implantology (ABOI)

When shopping for an implant dentist, these are just some of the issues and qualifications that patients should look for.
