For the implant procedure to be successful, it is extremely important that the dentist understands fundamental principles of oral biology, prosthetics, and biomechanics. Usually, an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist will place an implant and then a patient goes back to his dentist for a final restoration. And if an Oral Surgeon or a Periodontist do not have a definitive treatment plan from a general dentist regarding final restoration, an implant may be placed incorrectly which will present problems for a dentist to restore it. That is why, it is really beneficial for a patient when only one doctor does the treatment, starting from treatment planning, placing implants and restoring them. Dr. Khantsis does it all himself and he truly believes that this is the best way to do it.
