Single Tooth Anterior Implants: The General Dentist and the Surgeon

Published by Brian Homann DDS

Both the dentist and the surgeon play a role in the dental implant process. In the many cases, the surgical phase is handled completely by the surgeon. However, the general dentist should play a large role in the planning phase.

  • Gingival levels are often one of the most difficult items to manage.
  • The average case of orthodontics is “18-24 months” per Dr. S, where implants may be 4-8 months, but the surgeon is the one who will ultimately decides based on the specific scenario.
  • Cone Beam CT scans are excellent in helping to determine if adequate bone is present for a dental implant.
  • A case that involves orthodontic treatment (braces), a bone graft surgery, and an dental implant may take over 3 years to complete.
  • The surgeon is ultimately the person who will decide the length of treatment in regards to surgery. This cannot always be determined prior to treatment.
  • The type of dental implant restoration is dependent to a large percentage on the position of the implant itself.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
