How to Choose an Implant Dentist

General dentists can place dental implants after a 3-day training course, and many advertise that they have special training to take care of all your implant needs. But do they?

Implants are a team effort between the specialist (Dr. Wolf) and Your Dentist. As specialists in plastic surgery of the gums, periodontists are uniquely qualified to place dental implants. Pink healthy gums are the frame for your beautiful smile. Surgical specialists have at least 3 to 4 years of post-graduate surgical training after dental school. Since your dentist has extensive training in restoring teeth, he/she will be responsible for the color and shape of your new teeth; your periodontist is responsible for careful, accurate placement of your implant. Dr. Wolf is Board Certified in his specialty.
