Dental Implant Complications Are More Frequent When Performed by an Inexperienced Dentist

Dental implants have become more popular in recent years, with many people seeking to use them to improve their smiles and boost their self-confidence. Unfortunately, this surge in popularity has also led to a rise in injuries related to implant procedures. In fact, reports of problems with dental implants reached almost 500,000 in the last year alone.

While any general dentist is legally allowed to place implants, there is no universal requirement for dental students to learn how to perform these procedures as part of their training. This means that some dentists may attempt to perform implant procedures without sufficient experience or qualifications. This is similar to a student driver being given a license without ever having driven a car.

Over the past 25 years, reports of problems with dental implants have surpassed 3.1 million in number. At our specialty implant center, we have seen firsthand the complications that can arise when inexperienced dentists attempt to perform these procedures. We urge anyone considering dental implants to do their research and choose a qualified and experienced provider, whether that's us or someone else.

The success rate, under optimal conditions and when performed by specialists like the Florida Dental Implant Institute, is approximately 99%. The success rate when performed by a general dentist falls to around 80%. Don't risk implant failure by choosing an inexperienced dentist.

Questions to Ask When Searching for an Implant Dentist

Ask your dentist if he or she specializes in dental implant placement or if they are only qualified as a general dentist who performs limited implant procedures.
What training beyond 4 years of dental school do they have related to dental implant placement?
How do they manage complications related to dental implant placement or any other “oral surgery” procedures they perform?
Ask your dentist if there are specialists in the area who are better qualified to place dental implants.
Does the dentist utilize advanced technologies such as Cone Beam CT guided technology on implant cases?
Read online reviews and testimonials. Does the dentist have mostly positive reviews? What do the negative reviews say?
Are they a board-certified specialist or just a general dentist?
Can they also perform bone grafting in case you lack sufficient bone mass to support the implant?

Why Choose a Board-Certified Specialist?

Having dental implants can make a big difference in your life, both in terms of daily comfort and overall health. While some general dentists are qualified to place dental implants, they may not have the same level of specialized training as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. These surgeons have extensive training in both dentistry and medicine, which means they're able to treat patients with a wider variety of medical conditions and needs. If you're considering dental implants, it's worth considering an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome.

Our surgeon, Dr. Nathan Eberle, is among a select few elite surgeons in the country to have achieved degrees in oral and maxillofacial surgery as well as plastic surgery. In addition, he is double board-certified and has received numerous prestigious awards and honors because of his superior level of training, experience, and skill.

Both locally and nationally known, Dr. Eberle is considered one of the best surgeons in the region and has the expertise to not only provide complex smile rehabilitation but also tailored cosmetic treatments that can perfect your new look.
