Questions to ask when choosing an implant dentist

Posted in: Informative

1. Does the dentist utilize an in-office Cone Beam CT Scan machine for ALL implant cases?

At Integrated Dental Aesthetics every implant case is planned and performed with a Cone Beam CT for safety and precision.  According to the new position statement of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology, cross sectional imaging – notably Cone Beam CT – is the preferred method for presurgical assesment of dental implant sites.

2. Does the office have a dedicated surgical suite for placing dental implants?

Integrated Dental has a 700 square foot dedicated suite designed for your comfort and privacy.  This suite is fully equipped with the latest instrumentation for accurate and efficient implant surgery.  Dr. Jessica Logan performs each implant procedure in a totally sterile setting, assisted by highly trained and experienced staff.

3. Does the dentist have advanced implant training?

Dr. Jessica Logan is a Fellow and Graduate of the Misch International Implant Institute and a Fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists.  Both of our doctors have advanced surgical and restorative experience.

4. Does the dentist place AND restore dental implants?

Our team takes full responsibility for the implant process. The surgical placement and restoration of your implant case is done entirely at our facility.  No traveling between different offices, so the process is seamless.

5. Does the dentist show before and after images of his own treatment so you can see what he’s done for other patients?

Stock images on websites do not reflect the aesthetic expertise of the dentist actually performing the procedure.  All cases shown on our website are our actual cases, not stock images.

6. Is the dentist certified to offer conscious sedation, sleep dentistry?

Dr. Jessica Logan is certified to offer enteral oral conscious sedation to afford  a stress free appointment.

7. Does your dentist offer the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge?

This is the future of tooth replacement. Drs. Robert and Jessica Logan have undergone  extensive training specific to the Prettau Zirconia Implant Bridge.  They have studied with Dr. Michael Tischler, the leading Prettau dentist in the United States, to safely and predictably offer this care to their patients.

Our team works directly with Tischler Dental Lab, the leading Prettau Zirconia lab in the country. Having this unique relationship with a top quality lab is critical to the final results of your Prettau Bridge.
