The Fitzgerald Dental Implant Center is pleased to provide an on-site dental laboratory. An on-site laboratory is extremely rare to find in a dental office, however, we feel that in order to provide the excellent service and work that is our standard, this is a requirement. By having our laboratory on-site, we are able to provide our patients with the following:
The laboratory technician will meet face-to-face with the patient. This will allow the technician to more accurately work with the symmetry of the individual’s teeth and better customize each tooth. In turn, it also allows the patient to ask specific requests directly to the technician.
With an in-house laboratory where the technicians meet the patients and report to Dr. Fitzgerald, there is a natural accountability that is established. Having the laboratory on-site also allows for corrections to implants. When the laboratory work is out-sourced this will often let promised times be disregarded.
Although many labs do not work under microscope, all of our laboratory technicians utilize the microscope for all work. Precision is important when working with implants or anything that is fitting over the teeth. If the measurements are not precise and the margin is not smooth and tight fitting to the tooth, than it can lead to increased decay, periodontal disease including bone loss and other issues. We highly value excellence in every part of the dental implant process and having an on-site laboratory allows us to closely monitor the work that we provide each patient.
