Bone graft and dental implant in same day by general dentist? Is it prudent or acceptable that a dental implant can placed at the same time a grafting procedure is done for the implant site? ... Visitor from United Kingdom
They often are..... it depends upon the tissue conditions, location of the implant site and the type of implant.
Many many general dentists possess skill sets and problem solving expertise that is far superior to the skills of a specialist. Having a dentist who can "do everything" is superior to being sent to 2-3 different specialists.
The "key" to getting exactly what you want in terms of final functional outcome and cosmetic results is the experience and talent of the person doing the work.
Training alone is insufficient.
