2. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral Implantology
Dental implants are the “gold standard” for replacing missing teeth. They restore not only the tooth itself but also the missing tooth root.
Why is that important?
The roots of your teeth stabilize your tooth and stimulate healthy underlying bone tissue. When you lose a tooth, you also start to lose bone tissue, which can lead to other dental problems.
So what does it mean to be a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral ImplantologyOpens in the ABOI website?
Being a diplomate symbolizes the highest level of competence in implant dentistry. To attain this status, Dr. Goldtrap had to go through a comprehensive certification process and demonstrate in-depth knowledge, ability, and proficiency in implant dentistry. It requires seven or more years of experience in the practice of implant dentistry and completion of at least 75 implant cases.
What does all of that mean for you?
