Philadelphia, PA – (WiredPRNews.com) Dr. David DiGiallorenzo, a Williamsport, PA dental implants professional, has identified the two main reasons patients seeking a dental implants or laser-assisted new attached procedure- called LANAP- provider should choose a specialist over a general dentist.
A periodontist goes on to complete between two and six years of post doctoral residencies in the surgical disciplines of dentistry after graduating from dental school. This specialty involves high-level diagnostics, antimicrobial therapy, DNA, genetics and surgical skills that include implantology, regeneration therapy, prosthetics and microsurgery.
Some dentists attend just two days of training offered by dental implants manufacturers before offering dental implant procedures in their offices, said DiGiallorenzo, a Williamsport, PA periodontics specialist who has practiced periodontics and dental implantology since 1995. He is an internationally-known speaker on the topics.
“No rules govern what a general dentist can and cannot do,” DiGiallorenzo said, “unlike medical doctors, where a general practitioner wouldn’t consider doing an orthopedic procedure or a heart procedure.”
Although nothing prevents general dentists from performing dental implant placement and LANAP procedures, something patients should think about before selecting a professional for either treatment is their experience level. Specialists such as the Williamsport, PA periodontists in DiGiallorenzo’s practice perform these intricate procedures daily.
“How often does a general dentist do them?” DiGiallorenzo asked. “If I had to choose, I would want a professional who has done thousands of these procedures, as opposed to one who may have performed dozens of them.”
