Choosing a skilled provider for dental implants is a vital first step toward managing your oral health. How can you find a trustworthy doctor for your tooth replacement needs? The periodontists at Periodontal and Implant Surgeons of Houston are an excellent choice for securing healthy, long-lasting dental implants.

Why Consider a Periodontist for Dental Implants?

Periodontists are an excellent choice for dental implants because they specialize in the health of the soft tissue (gums and connective tissue) and jawbone surrounding and supporting your teeth. They have the ability to:

  • Diagnose and treat all forms of periodontal disease
  • Training in presurgical examination and treatment planning
  • Evaluating peri-implant tissues and managing complications

How Can You Benefit from a Periodontist’s Training?

Dental implants’ longevity depends on healthy gums and bones, optimal placement, and careful maintenance. Therefore, when a periodontist places your dental implants, you will benefit from their extensive training and experience in two ways:

  • Ensuring dental implants have a healthy start – A thorough evaluation will determine whether your gums and bone are a healthy foundation for dental implants. Your specialist will address any concerns, including them in your customized treatment plan to ensure dental implant success.
  • Maintaining healthy dental implants – Routine exams and monitoring help support gum, bone, and implant health throughout a dental implant’s lifespan. A periodontist can efficiently detect, diagnose, and treat any concerns with your dental implants and the soft and hard tissues surrounding them.
