Who Is Qualified To Place Dental Implants
The dentist that’s qualified to place dental implants is generally one that’s gone through at least a year residency type program where they’ve been trained on how to place them, how to go ahead and restore them as well. I think that’s super critical that the dentist knows how to restore the implant as well as do the surgical aspect because the two go hand in hand. If the dentist only restores them or the dentist only places them there can be some miscommunication on how the final product comes out for the patient. I think it’s important that anyone who is doing this kind or procedure, these types of surgery, really has a hands on approach in the restorative aspect of it as well.
As a second-generation dentist,Dr. Matiasevich was raised in Santa Cruz. Dr. Matiasevich completed his undergraduate work in economics at the University of California Irvine and then attended the University of Southern California for his dental degree.
