Dental Survey: General Dentistry & The Dental Implant Dentist

General Dentistry & The Dental Implant Dentist

The dental implant dentistToday’s dental implant dentist isn’t necessarily a specialists. In fact, this survey found that 99% of general dentists restore dental implants, and 55% place the implants themselves in straightforward dental implant surgery cases.

“They were invented by GPs like us,” said one general dentist. “More dentists should be placing them. Specialists should not be arrogantly taking control.”

We also found that 30% place implants, even in difficult cases, and 33% offer immediate load dental implants. When it comes to mini dental implants/denture implants, 61% restore them, and 45% place them.

Here are some comments from dental implant dentists:

  • “Implants need to be the dentist’s deal….. Do not rely on the oral surgeon or periodontist for anything but placement.” (Connecticut dentist)
  • “I feel placement of dental implants is best left to board certified oral surgeons because I have seen a very high failure rate with the implants placed by dentists.” (Alabama dentist)
  • Mini dental implants do not have long-term clinical evidence to support widespread use under dentures as a definitive restoration.” (California prosthodontist)
  • “Significant slowdown of dental implants in this economy.” (Minnesota dentist)
