Implant Placement and Restorations in One Location
There are many benefits to receiving placement and restoration at our office. Our comprehensive approach eliminates your need to travel to several locations and removes the chance of miscommunication between teams working on your smile. While many other dentists refer you to another office for specialized placement, our dentist has the skill, training, and technology to provide complete treatment with dental implants.
Our implant services include:
- Implant porcelain crowns
- Implant-supported bridges
- Denture and partial implant restorations
Dental implants are made of body-safe titanium posts capable of fusing with living tissue and bone. Once the implants are integrated, and healing is complete, we welcome you back to fix your personalized restoration in place.
Prior to beginning implant treatment, we will perform a 3D scan of your jaw. Dentists have begun to rely on 3D imaging techniques to provide them with a detailed view of the mouth and skull. The advantage that 3D imaging holds over regular dental x-rays is that bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves can be viewed clearly.
3D scans can be completed in less than half a minute.
Dental implants are the most sophisticated replacement for missing teeth, but have historically proven to be time-consuming to place. 3D scans vastly reduce the time it takes to place implants.
How are 3D scans used?
3D scans are advantageous because they allow the dentist to magnify specific areas of the face. In addition, the dentist can easily view cross-sectional “slices” of the jaw, which makes planning treatment easier and faster.
Here are some of the main ways in which 3D scans are used in dentistry:
Assess the quality of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
Determine where nerves are located.
Measure the density of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
Pinpoint the most effective placement for implants, including the angle of best fit.
Plan the complete surgical procedure in advance, from start to finish.
Precisely decide on the appropriate size and type of implants.
View exact orientation and position of each tooth.
View impacted teeth.
Assess whether a tooth needs a root canal
Assess whether an old root canal is failing
Increasing Your Chances for Candidacy with Bone Grafting
Our team strives to provide every patient the opportunity to receive dental implants whenever possible. Those with weakened jawbone volume may need prior treatment with bone grafting to provide the support needed to keep an implant supported. During your consultation, we conduct a thorough examination to determine if this procedure will be beneficial for rejuvenating your smile.
