Learn About the Advanced Form of Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implants consist of small titanium posts that provide the basis for replacement teeth. The crown-and-root structure helps preserve the facial structure of the patient and encourages new bone tissue. Dental Health 360° is committed to making high quality restorative dental services such as implant surgery convenient and affordable. Specifically, guided implant surgery is a process that involves the dentist utilizing advanced machinery and imaging technology in order to aid in the process of both manufacturing and placing dental implants in an efficient, precise, and effective way.

Guided implant surgery is a new and improved form of dental implant surgery. It involves using the patient’s CT images to strategize the surgery with computer software. These technological advancements have improved the level of communication between the surgeon and restorative dentist, and collaborating in this way has allowed us to create individualized results that are precisely tailored to the patient’s specific dental needs.

CT is an abbreviation for dental cone beam computed tomography, and CT images are a type of x-ray equipment used to produce 3-D images of the teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and facial bones. In addition to a cone-beam CT, a guided implant surgery requires implant planning software, a guided implant surgery drill kit, and a custom surgical template. By utilizing guided implant surgery, dentists are able to gain a greater understanding of the patient’s oral health status in order to create the best dental implants possible.

Guided surgery differs from conventional implant surgery techniques in the sense that dentists need to deeply familiarize themselves with the specific instrumentation involved with this procedure. Our dental team undergoes an extensive amount of training in order to gain the necessary knowledge to perform a guided implant surgery. In addition, our attention to detail is impeccable and is an extremely necessary part of this process.

Benefits of Guided Implant Surgery

Guided implant surgery can also make the implant process quicker in terms of the time the patient spends in the office. The surgery is reputably accurate and safe. Dentists only need to make smaller incisions that tend to result in minimal bleeding and lessened discomfort. Additionally, the bone graft, which involves the transplanting of bone tissue, will be minimal.

Because the end result will be new dental implants, patients who receive guided implant surgery will experience natural-looking, healthy teeth replacements. This makes it an extremely attractive option for those who are suffering from tooth loss due to dental decay or damage.

Guided implant surgery produces teeth replacements that are virtually indistinguishable from natural teeth. This allows the patient to eat, drink, and speak as they normally would. The implants will also prevent bone loss because jawbone deteriorates in spaces without teeth. If you have not lost all of your teeth, dental implants will help keep the adjacent teeth stable. One of the most important benefits of dental implants is that they can help prevent gum disease. This is because missing teeth can trap food and bacteria, which can eventually lead to gum disease.

Learn About Your Dental Implant Possibilities

At Dental Health 360°, we understand the value of a healthy smile, and through options like guided implant surgery, we are able to update our techniques and assist our patients in achieving this. The types of dental implants we offer include endosteal implants and subperiosteal implants. Endosteal implants are surgically placed in the jawbone. Once the gum tissue has healed, a post is connected to the original implant, which holds the artificial teeth. Subperiosteal implants, on the other hand, involve a metal frame being mounted underneath the gums on or above the jawbone, which fuses to the bone as it heals. Posts for replacement teeth rise through the gums. This method is primarily used for shallow jawbones.
