Choosing an Implant Dentist
When selecting the surgeon for your dental implant procedure, it is important that you find a highly qualified and experienced professional. By choosing a doctor who has undergone the necessary training and frequently performs the procedure, you can ensure you are receiving safe care and limit your risk of complications. In addition, the expertise of the professional who crafts and affixes your dental crown to the implant post will determine the aesthetics of your new restoration in conjunction with the rest of your smile.
Patients who come to Cornerstone Dental for their implant procedure are receiving care from a specialist with the highest level of skill and expertise possible in implant dentistry. While some practices may refer you to an oral surgeon to complete the implant placement, or to a cosmetic dentist to attach the crown, Dr. Beckwith is experienced in all stages of the process. He has undergone extensive training in implant dentistry to offer patients high quality care. Within his almost 30 years of performing the dental implant procedure, Dr. Beckwith has earned the status of Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI), as well as Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry (ABOI/ID), which requires six years of practicing implant dentistry, presenting cases to be reviewed, and passing a set of rigorous examinations.
Since all stages of the dental implant procedure are performed in-house, Dr. Beckwith is able to fully customize treatment and be with you every step of the way. He utilizes state-of-the-art technology to perform your surgery to achieve optimal results. This includes the ScanX Digital Panoramic X-Ray System for evaluating patients to determine if they are good candidates. He also employs CBCT (CAT scan) technology to ensure a proper diagnosis and make it possible to begin the planning process immediately. This also allows him to perform computer-guided surgery with the utmost precision and provide you with a shorter recovery.
