A periodontist, an oral surgeon, or an implantologist places dental implants.

The periodontist and oral surgeon are teamed with a restorative dentist.

They will place the implants and then the patient will be seen by a restorative dentist for completion of the crowns or overlying appliance.

There will be two dentists during the course of treatment.

An implantologist is trained in both dental implant surgery and restoration of the dental prosthesis.

An implantologist will do both the surgery and the restoration, and there will be only one dentist during the course of treatment.
