For Dental Implants, See a Prosthodontist
When you are considering dental implants, you should do your homework on the dental professional that you are using before committing to the procedure. Dental implants represent a permanent and potentially costly dental prosthesis that can last you a lifetime if executed correctly. Dr. Sergio Ortegon has many years of very specific training that uniquely qualifies him to place dental implants safely, and in a way that will encourage your oral health in positive ways for the rest of your life.
What is prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that pertains to the diagnosis, treatment planning, maintenance of the oral facilities, and long-term health of patients with missing or deficient teeth or maxillofacial tissues.
What is a prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who has gone above and beyond the education requirements to become a dentist. On top of all the schooling required to become a dentist, a prosthodontist typically attends at least three years of additional schooling, and advanced training with American Dental Association (ADA) accredited prosthodontics programs. We specialize in treating dental and facial issues that involve restoring form and function to the face and mouth via prosthetics like dental implants, dentures, and partial dentures.
The Importance of Seeing a Prosthodontist for Dental Implants
The term “prostho” stands for replacement, while the word “dontist” stands for dealing with teeth. So, when you are looking for someone to replace your teeth, it would make sense that you would choose someone who is a tooth replacement specialist.
Over the last few years, the amount of dental professionals who offer dental implants has ballooned by an incredible amount. Does this mean that all of these dental professionals have taken the time to search out adequate education on how to place and maintain dental implants? If something unexpected occurs during the dental implant placement process, will they be able to respond accordingly, with confidence and care? These questions are legitimate and something that you should consider when you are searching for a dental professional to place your dental implants.
