Dental implants are improving the way most people live. They are used as a base for a replacement tooth that appears, feels, and also performs just like a natural tooth. Someone who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat almost everything, and are also left with a natural looking smile that protects the facial contours. People with dental implants can smile confidently.
Dental implants have become the most reliable and predictable method of replacing a single, multiple or complete set of teeth. Treatment plans are generated based on information gained through dental history, intra-oral examination, study models, radiographs and dental CT scans.
WHAT EXACTLY ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
The dental implant is small titanium screw that is surgically inserted into the jaw-bone where the tooth is missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, forming an excellent foundation for the artificial tooth.
Implants help maintain facial shape, stopping bone degeneration that happens when teeth are missing.
WHAT SHOULD YOU THINK ABOUT BEFORE A DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE?
If you are thinking about dental implants, your gums need to be examined carefully as well as your medical history and your dental records reviewed. For those whose mouth is not suitable for dental implants, methods for enhancing results, including bone grafting, is often advised.
Most dental implants and bone grafting can be done in the office under local anesthesia, without general anesthesia.
DENTAL IMPLANT TECHNOLOGY AT EMERALD DENTAL CARE CLINIC
Precise placement and patient safety cannot be assured with the conventional dental implant placement and planning methods.
Cone Bean Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans help the dentist analyze the skeletal structure of the patient three dimensionally before implant placement.
At Emerald Dental Care, we also offer Computer guided surgery, CAD-CAM, for implant placement. It is a minimally invasive, precise technique which promises to revolutionize the way implant dentistry is done. With computer guided implant surgery, we can perform a ‘virtual surgery’ in the absence of the patient.
