An implantologist or an implantologue refers to a dentist having extensive training in inserting dental implants. The inserting of dental implants is similar to extracting a tooth or filling a cavity. Do you know why? This is because all it needs is more experience and expertise of the implantologue or implantaologist.
Any time there is a need for dental implants, what would you look for, a dentist practicing dentistry for over 40 years or a new dentist having no experience even on single dental implant? OR Will you consider a dental implantologist who is into inserting implants for the past 15 years?
Now that you need dental implants, what is your choice, however, you need a well-experienced and highly qualified dentist. Now it is your turn to consider choosing a dentist specialized in placing dental implants or in cosmetic dentistry. Will you go for a dentist having 10 years of general practice, but no experience in implant or choose a dentist with 2 years experience who is placing only implants?

Before choosing an implantologist, ask questions to ensure your implantologist is qualified sufficiently and can provide the best possible treatment.
- What are the options of treatment he/she will do to replace missing teeth?
- What is their success rate?
- How many dental implants they have performed?
- What is the anesthesia type they use?
- Ask them to show pictures of before and after the patients are treated
- If you find the dentist is not answering properly these questions, it is a red flag.
What can you do to have a safe game?
