Fellow, American Academy of Implant Dentistry
The American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID) has been the leader in implant dentistry since 1951, promoting the advancement of implant dentistry education through research and support. As the credentialing standard in dental implantology, dentists with AAID accreditation benefit from invaluable oral implant expertise and advanced education, which ultimately benefits you, the patient. With all the advancements in dental implantology, there’s no better time than now to benefit from dental implants.
What Are Dental Implants?
If you’re missing a tooth, perhaps due to periodontal issues or an accident, or perhaps have a severely damaged tooth that cannot be restored, then you might benefit from a dental implant. At Allure Dental Center, a titanium post, or “artificial tooth root” is expertly positioned inside your jawbone. From this post, a customized tooth can be anchored, restoring your smile.
A dental implant not only restores the appearance of your smile, it also fits, feels and functions like your natural tooth once did. In many cases, your dental implant is even stronger and more durable that your original tooth. If you’re missing more than one tooth, dental implants can also anchor bridges and dentures.
Why Choose an AAID Accredited Dentist?
There’s quite a bit of difference between a dentist who offers dental implants and a dental implant expert. You can experience that difference with Drs. Suzanna and Trinh, in our Bay Area office. AAID Dentists are unique in their advanced postdoctoral education, which includes:
- A minimum of 300-400 hours of study related to oral implants
- 5 or more years of dental implant placement experience
- At least 50 cases of dental implant treatments successfully completed
- A written examination that demonstrates expert implant knowledge
- An oral exam to confirm advanced skill and education in the dental implant field
