While dental implants are the gold-standard tooth replacement for their unsurpassed strength, longevity, and aesthetics, replacing missing teeth is an important decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. Choosing a highly skilled periodontist versus a general dental practitioner can result in more optimal treatment outcomes. Board-certified periodontist Dr. Alan Meltzer provides state-of-the-art dental implants in Voorhees, NJ, with more than 38 years of specialized experience. Services at Advanced Oral Specialty Group include guided implant surgery, advanced healing techniques, and diverse anesthesia options administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist.

The Advantage of Seeing a Periodontist

A periodontist specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease and oral inflammation, the placement of dental implants, and bone grafting for implants. Seeing a periodontist means seeing a dental implant expert who has not only the surgical experience to ensure implants are successfully placed for maximum stability but who also has the eye for aesthetics to consider how your soft tissue will frame the implant crown. Periodontists complete three years of specialized training after dental school, providing unmatched depth and breadth of experience in both hard and soft tissue treatments and the expertise to navigate complex cases.

No matter if you need a single dental implant or you’re replacing a full mouth of missing teeth, dental implant surgery is actually quite complex. It’s our objective to make it easy. After years of training and decades refining our technique, we offer dental implant treatment that provides a pleasant experience and results as cutting-edge as the technology we invest in.

Underlying Issues that could affect Implants

Since periodontists specialize in taking care of your periodontal health, they will thoroughly examine your teeth, gums, and jawbones before planning an implant procedure.

If they find any underlying periodontal problem, they will completely eradicate it first so that the underlying bone is healthy and strong enough to anchor an implant firmly – and allows it to support the artificial teeth attached to it. 

Many periodontists in Bergen County, NJ and across the USA, such as Dr. Alan Meltzer, have received additional advanced surgical training in Osseointegration.

Cutting-Edge Technologies

Since Periodontists specialize in the placement of Dental Implants, and the underlying structures of the mouth, they have the unique access to new technologies and techniques. 

Periodontists and Implantologists are frequently consulted, and asked to try and test new things to the field. 

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT): This sophisticated 2D or 3D imaging technology plays an important role in implant placements and offering it in house provides ultimate convenience because you don’t have to visit another facility.

Guided Implant Surgery: Combining CBCT scanning technology with the dynamic specialized software Navident enables planning precise implant placement and fabricating a temporary bridge before surgery is performed, removing virtually all the guesswork on the day of surgery.

Anesthesia Options: Meticulous and comfortable care is delivered in a safe, soothing environment based on the unique treatment needs and anxiety levels of each patient. Proper levels of nitrous oxide, oral sedation, or IV sedation are administered and the patient’s vitals are monitored throughout treatment.

Advanced Healing Techniques: Guided bone and tissue regeneration and platelet rich growth factors provide advanced healing for treatments such as bone grafting. These approaches ensure predictability of the procedure and result in faster recovery, enabling patients to reap the benefits of permanent dental implants sooner.

It is vital to get dental implants from a highly-rated practice with a proven track record. Advanced Oral Specialty Group offers a wide spectrum of in-house sophisticated technologies and vast expertise to ensure beautiful and functional outcomes.
