Can any dentist place a dental implant?
Legally yes. Any dentist can place a dental implant, but like any other medical or dental procedure, not all practitioners have equal experience, training, or comfort with the procedure. Also, with any dental procedure a dentist performs, there is a learning curve. So it’s to your benefit to find a practitioner who has significant experience in this unique area of dentistry. Choosing a dentist with experience and education specifically in the area of placing and restoring dental implants is the best way to get the best possible long term result.
