The answer will let you know how capable and proficient your dentist is in the installation of dental implants. If your dentist has little or no implant experience, he may refer you to a dental specialist like Dr. De Andrade, called a periodontist. A periodontist treats the areas around the teeth to include the jaw, bone structure and gums. Inserting a single implant or multiple implants involves complex and delicate preparation of the jaw bone and gums to receive and retain a new foreign object in the mouth. The actual surgical phase is a minor segment of the entire procedure which can take a few days or a few weeks for your mouth and new teeth to become totally comfortable. Your periodontist needs to closely oversee and monitor your progress after surgery. This type of knowledge can only be acquired through actual procedures, education and patient feedback.
At Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants of Las Vegas, Dr. Ed De Andrade is a dentist specializing in Periodontics and Implantology. He spent an additional three years in periodontal dentistry training at the West Los Angeles Veteran Affairs Medical Center before establishing his practice in Las Vegas. His Las Vegas patients have benefited from his professional skillset for more than a decade and from his step by step protocols for thousands of successful dental implants.
Dr. De Andrade’s extensive depth of knowledge with dental implants has been documented and published in several dental professional periodicals and has placed him in the position of being an esteemed member of top dental societies and associations. He reviews and analyses each patient’s personal case and consistently starts with the most conservative approach rather than an immediate radical approach to dental procedures. Dr. De Andrade will recommend conservative first steps for all of his patients in an attempt to save their original teeth and as a cost savings to them. Should it become a necessary last step, then there is not a better doctor in Las Vegas for you to visit in order to receive an extraction and dental implant replacement. This statement is based on continued patient feedback, doctor recommendations and peer reviews throughout the years.
