Dental implants are fixtures which look, feel and function like your natural teeth! They are generally used in situations where there are one or more missing teeth, and can even be used to support a full arch of missing teeth.
Other functions of dental implants include:
Dental implants are made up of 3 components:
CBCT: Cone Beam Computed Tomography is a 3d imaging modality which allows for visualization of the potential implant site prior to beginning any implant procedures. This type of imaging provides more information than traditional 2d radiographs and allows for much better visualization of anatomical structures such as bone, teeth and nerves. This allows our doctors to safely and accurately- diagnosis, plan and perform dental implant placement.
Based on all of the information captured above, we are able to digitally plan your implant placement prior to you arriving for your surgical visit. This allows for complete safety and efficiency during the surgical placement of your dental implants.
Placement of your dental implant(s) is completed in the office with special attention to patient comfort, ideal placement and optimal esthetic and functional results. Additionally, surgical time and risk is greatly minimized due to the surgical plan/guide which was created prior to the surgical visit.
