While you can find general dentists that place dental implants, odds are you want to go with a specialist that spent an extensive amount of time training specifically to place dental implants. There are two dental specialists that you can count on having the most training in placing dental implants: Oral and maxillofacial surgeons and periodontists.
For example Nashua Dental Group’s resident periodontist, Dr. Jean-Marie Biebuyck, went on to get three more years of specialty periodontics training at Tufts in addition to the four years of dental school. During these three years he was able to get education in implant surgery, reconstructive surgery, and periodontics.
On top of schooling there’s also the real-life experience of implant placement. Since Nashua Dental Group’s periodontist specializes in dental implant placement, placing well over 1,000 implants in his career, he has an advantage over general dentists that spend time doing other procedures as well. In addition to day-to-day implant placement experience, Dr. Jean-Marie Biebuyck (along with all dentists at Nashua Dental Group) stay abreast of the latest technology and techniques by participating in continuing education courses.
If you’re considering getting dental implants and want to feel secure with a specialist in charge of treatment, don’t hesitate to contact our dental office in Nashua.
