If you’re looking to get dental implants, you may also be wondering if you’ll need to go to a periodontist to get your implants put in. Periodontists are a type of dental specialist that focuses on the care of your gums and the other tissues around your teeth. However, you don’t need to see a periodontist to get dental implants. There are many dentists who have experience and training in dental implants.

How is a Periodontist Different Than a Dentist?

A periodontist can do everything that a regular dentist can do. However, periodontists have furthered their education and specialized in care surrounding your gums and the tissues surrounding your gums. They are experts in the prevention and treatment of gum diseases and often are experts in dental implants. While regular dentists usually only have training in non-surgical procedures, periodontists have training in both non-surgical and surgical procedures relating to gum and bone health. Periodontists often offer more specialized services than general dentists.

Should I See a Periodontist for Dental Implants?

While periodontists are a great choice for a dental implant doctor, you don’t necessarily have to see one to have your implants installed. You can see a regular dentist, you just want to make sure they have plenty of experience in installing dental implants. You also want to ensure that the dentist you see will be able to help you care for your implants once they have been put in.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Unfortunately, the exact cost of dental implants is going to be different for each person’s individual needs.
