More and more dentists are becoming certified in placing dental implants. With the flood of newcomers in the industry, there is also a flood of implant failures by these newcomers. That is why it is important to do your research on dental implant providers, before committing with to a treatment.
It’s not uncommon for inexperienced general dentists to take quick short dental implant training courses, where they learn the bare minimum to place an implant. A quality implant provider will not only have multiple certifications from accredited institutions.
For instance, Misch International Implant Institute is one of the highest quality schools for a dentist to earn their credentials. Misch offers the highest quality implants to its trainees and sets the standards not only in America but the entire world. Your implant provider should not only have rigorous implant training, but also an array of certifications and memberships from accredited associations.
By choosing an experienced dentist, you can avoid these common inexperienced mistakes:
1. Skimping On Poor Quality Implants
The biggest mistake of inexperienced dentists is that they are trying to make a profit off their implants. They don’t take pride in their work, and it shows through the kind of implants they choose. Poor quality dental implants are made from materials that are not biocompatible or promote healing. Poor quality implants crowns are also more prone to chipping and damage.
2. Placing Implants Incorrectly
For a successful treatment, your implant has to be placed in an area and angle that will promote healing, as well as be able to handle the excessive force from biting and chewing. Implants also have to be carefully placed, so they don’t affect the nerves in the sinus cavity or the upper jaw. We personally use 3D CT scans, so we can get a better view of your unique oral cavity for proper placement.
3. Accepting Wrong Candidates
Inexperienced implant providers will accept any and all candidates. However, not everyone is a viable candidate for dental implants. Certain medical conditions can affect your candidacy, as well as jawbone and gum deterioration. These problems will need to be addressed, before moving forward with any treatment. However, while some conditions might set your dental implant treatment back, it doesn’t mean that you are completely disqualified from the treatment.
4. Not Allowing Time to Heal
Traditional dental implants need healing time to form a strong bond to the jawbone. Placing crowns on implant pegs too quickly will interfere with the healing process and make the implant susceptible to failure. While single implants require healing time, our Teeth Next Day dental implant dentures only require one day, due to the way they are placed in the jaw bone.
