Thailand Implantologists and Dental Implant Specialists
Dental Implants are used to replace missing gaps. A dental implant composes of a titanium implant post and a crown attached to the post. Conventional dental implant treatments are normally performed in two stages:
- Stage One : Dental Implant Post Surgery Placement
- Stage Two : Prosthetic on Dental Implant Post
The stage two prosthetic placed on the dental implant(s) may be a crowns, bridge or overdentures. Implantologists or dental implant dentists are dentists that undergo additional training and qualifications specializing in both stages one and two dental implant treatment.
In the USA, a periodontist or an oral surgeon may perform stage one of the dental implant post surgery whilst a prosthodontist completes the stage two prosthesis on the dental implant. In Thailand, a general dentist is licensed to perform both stages of dental implant treatment varying from one dental clinic to another. At Smile Signature dental clinics, all our dental implant cases are done by qualified implantologists and oral surgeons and prosthodontists. Our thailand dentists are screened on their qualification, experience and skills. Our thailand dentists are assigned privileges for dental implant treatments to ensure proper dental implant diagnoses, placement and treatment care is given.
The stage one dental implant treatment on post surgery placement is a procedure where additional advance training is recommended because the dental implant post placement encompasses surgical procedures. Your implantologists will need to ensure proper dental implant placement measurement to ensure soft tissues and nerves are not damaged. Any dentist may be able to place a dental implant posts, however, the success and implant post integratation with the surrounding jaw bone and tissues is dependent on the skill of your implantologists.
The stage two dental implant treatment composes of building and making the dental prostheses and placing it onto the implant post. The permanent placement of the stage two dental prosthese on dental implant is normally done at least after one or more from the dental implant post surgery in allowing the jaw bone to integrate and fuse with the dental implant post. Stage two prostheses on implants may be done by implantologists or a prosthodontist.
