There are many different organizations and training programs that implant dentists can participate in that can help them obtain the best education in the procedure. Oftentimes, in order to join these organizations, it’s required that the dentist take a variety of courses or exams that will fully test their knowledge, in regards to treatment with dental implants. Having these certifications is a great achievement, and reflects well on their success rate with implants.
Dental implant technology has greatly improved over the last 10 years as new techniques are being discovered that can make them much easier to place. With all these new technologies, it’s important that dentists take continuing education courses to remain up-to-date with the current standard of implant treatment.
Dr. Mortensen has been placing dental implants for over thirty years now. He also dedicates himself to more than 50 hours of continuing education courses in order to keep his skills sharp and new.
Some patients may not be fully prepared to receive dental implants right away. In fact, there are a variety of different conditions that can interfere with the implant process, resulting in the implant failing. to heal or osseointegrate. In order to prevent this from happening, an implant dentist will usually perform a thorough examination of each patient’s oral health before agreeing to place implants for them.
During the initial implant consultation with Dr. Mortensen, he checks each patient to make sure that they fulfill the requirements needed to be a good candidate for dental implants. He also takes this time to address any remaining questions or concerns you may have remaining about the treatment.
