Choosing an Implant Dentist

A dental implant is a substitute for your tooth root, and an ideal if you are missing a tooth. The implant is a small metal peg that is surgically implanted into your jawbone. A dental restoration such as a dental crown is then attached to the dental implant to provide a strong, realistic alternate to your natural tooth.

An implant dentist will determine if you are the right candidate for a dental implant. It is crucial that you choose an experienced implant dentist, such as Pittsburgh's Dr. Babak Firouzi, to ensure quality work and a successful implant. A failed implant can result in a poor appearance, unhealthy mouth and decreased self esteem.

Characteristics to Look For

When choosing an implant dentist, be sure to select someone who:

  • Carefully evaluates your overall oral health
  • Is a highly skilled cosmetic dentist
  • Listens carefully to your dental goals and takes time to develop your treatment plan
  • Is devoted to quality care
  • Has practiced dental implants for at least several years
  • Provides personalized attention

Dental implants affect your teeth and your overall appearance. Be sure not to select an implant dentist based on the cheapest price. You can not risk your health and well-being with an experienced implant dentist just because it is the most affordable option.
