What is a Cosmetic Dentist?
Firstly ‘cosmetic dentistry’ is not regarded as a dental specialty. Many dentists call themselves cosmetic dentists, however, the title does not exist within any realms of dental specialism. Anyone can call themselves a cosmetic dentist, however, the only people with the right to call themselves specialists in Cosmetic Dentistry are those who have undergone a dedicated programme in Prosthodontics. Dr Fearon is a specialist trained Prosthodontist.
Who should provide dental implant treatments?
Although the Dental Council of most European countries allow all dentists to provide dental implant treatment, some countries are now beginning to realise that a dental implant register should be set up. This is a register of professionals who have undergone specialist training in implant dentistry. The main reason for the implant register is that when dental implants go wrong, it can cause catastrophic results to the patient.
