First, you should visit your general dentist for a comprehensive evaluation. Together, you and your dentist will determine the perfect plan of action to achieve ideal dental health. If dental implants are the correct option for you, the first step is the dental implant surgery, in which the titanium implant screw is placed. Periodontists are specialists that complete a three-year residency after dental school that provides extensive training on how to properly place dental implants. Thus, a general dentist will often refer you to a periodontist for the implant surgery.
In our office, our cosmetic dentist Dr. Lissauer will thoroughly examine your oral health and will discuss all of your options with you. If a dental implant is needed, our specialist for dental implant surgeries, periodontist Dr. Lee Hauer, comes to our office each week to place dental implants.
In this blog post, Dr. Lissauer discusses how he loves working with Nobel dental implants.
Dr. Lee Hauer: Periodontist & Implant placement specialist
Our implant placement specialist, periodontist Dr. Lee Hauer, comes to the office each week to perform the highest quality implant surgeries. Dr. Hauer uses only the most technological equipment and has over 18 years of training and experience in implant dentistry. Dental implants are such a common procedure in our office that we are extremely familiar with all implant types. We personally prefer to use Nobel Biocare implants, as they are made from the highest quality materials and are extremely well researched and tested. Nobel Biocare even provides a Warranty on their implant parts, which is unique in the industry. Actually, patients often present to our office with old implants, nervous because they forgot the name of the implant system used. Due to our familiarity with all implant systems, we are able to figure out the company of the implant and address any of the patient’s concerns. If you live in the south Florida area and are considering dental implants, please feel free to schedule a complimentary evaluation in our office.
