Finding a specialist dentist that does dental implants in a small town like Oxford, MA can be a challenge. While some general dentists place dental implants, many choose to see a specialist such as a periodontist. A periodontist has received additional schooling and training, specializing in the gums and the bone that supports them. This puts periodontists in a unique position to place dental implants with the greatest understating of the bone and gums the implant is placed in. In fact, a study found that dental implants placed by specialists have a higher success rate than those placed by general dentists.
Recognizing the challenge of finding a periodontist in Oxford, Auburn or other small towns in the area, Auburn Dental Group has teamed up with a periodontist. Most of the week the periodontist works in a large practice in Worcester, but has committed time out of their week to patients in smaller towns. This ensures the residents of Oxford and Auburn have access to dental implants placed by a specialist or specialized gum procedures without having to travel into Worcester.
With access to a periodontist on staff, people living in Oxford and Auburn can get dental implants in the same dental office they get their crowns in. With the general dentist and periodontist under the same roof, the communication and collaboration regarding the case can be more streamlined. There’s also no need to transfer dental records from one office to another since both the crown and implant are done in the same office. This approach to offering periodontal services ensures greater simplicity for everyone involved.
