Why Choose an Oral Surgeon for Your Dental Implants?

While many dentists place dental implants, oral surgeons are implant specialists who place multiple dental implants every day. The level of advanced training that oral surgeons, like  Don C. Kalant Sr. D.D.S., Michael T. Pink D.D.S., M.D., and Blake C. Garrett D.D.S., M.D., have undergone, ensures a more comfortable, predictable, and successful dental implant experience. Their expertise includes relevant knowledge and unique training of the jawbone and teeth structures.  Additionally, our oral surgeons have specialized equipment and the most advanced materials close at hand. Offices like ours are stocked with instrumentation specific to oral and maxillofacial surgery.

Can my general dentist place implants?

The difference between your dentist and an oral surgeon is that the specialty of oral and maxillofacial surgery requires an additional four to six years of hospital-based surgical and anesthesia training, post dental school degree.  Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a surgical specialty recognized by the American College of Surgeons. Our three, highly skilled doctors are truly accomplished and strive to continually improve their skills and increase their knowledge, especially when it comes to dental implants and placement. They maintain current competencies through ongoing continuing education, accomplished through national meetings, seminars, lectures, and self-study

As the premier implant and oral surgery practice in the Naperville, Joliet & Yorkville areas, we pride ourselves in maintaining a high-quality standard of care, while investing in education and training to offer the best implant – 3D technology. Drs. Kalant and Pink are board-certified oral surgeons who have completed an additional series of rigorous requirements, from written and oral examinations to a review of their surgical expertise by a panel of peers, proving they have achieved the highest level of competence.

Advanced Technology in an Oral Surgical Setting

Kalant, Pink & Associates implement the very latest equipment and technology needed for the success of dental implant and bone grafting procedures. Our doctor’s rely on state-of-the-art 3D imaging with Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), guided digital software and 3D printing to prepare for the most accurate implant placement. Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is widely used in our office, a technique used to expedite the healing process for most patients having bone grafting procedures done. Without a doubt, the use of cutting-edge digital-based technologies places our practice in a league of our own.  

Next-Level Anesthesia Care
