Why We Offer Patients a 3D Implant Placement
When we talk about 3D implant placement it is important to understand what exactly a dental implant is. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are inserted directly into the jaw bone in order to help replace missing teeth. Dental crowns (your visible tooth) are then attached to these implanted posts so that we can appropriately treat tooth loss. In the past, bridgework and dentures were the common methods used to address some of the cosmetic problems of missing teeth. However, bridgework and dentures did little to prevent bone loss or cause the false teeth to function the same way as your natural teeth.
With 3D dental implants, and with any implants, what you are getting is a replacement tooth that functions exactly the same as you natural teeth. This form of dental implants can help to preserve the jaw structure by preventing atrophy from bone loss. Permanent implants will help you to maintain proper chewing function, and accept the appropriate natural forces on the jaw bone which keeps it both functional and healthy.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Implants are titanium screws which we insert directly into the jaw bone and then affixes the prosthetic tooth, which is also known as a dental crown.
WHAT IS A 3D IMPLANT PLACEMENT?
A 3D implant placement is a more effective and modern way to place dental implants which often leads to improved results.
Thanks to the advances in technology, we can now use 3D images and implant surgical planning software to construct a graphic map of the patient’s mouth. This map allows us to pinpoint potential problems and plan the entire dental implant procedure in advance. It is a combination of some of the most advanced dental, medical, and scientific technology to give you a replacement tooth. Once you get a 3D dental implant placement, your new tooth is going to look, feel, and act exactly like the natural tooth you lost.
During your first visit when you are planning a 3D implant placement we are going to take 3D images which will enable us to assess the bone structure, find the exact locations, plan the entire surgery, and even make a replacement tooth before your next visit. This helps to reduce the amount of time it takes to get your dental implants and dental crowns which are necessary to give you the cosmetic benefits. Implant dentists are concerned both with cosmetic outcomes as well as the oral health of your teeth. Once we have replaced your missing teeth you will regain a confident smile and will stay fit and healthy by maintaining good nutritional habits and eating the healthy foods that you once may not have been able to chew.
There are many benefits to 3D implant placement, as there often are with advances in medical science. Advanced, highly precise computer-guided dental implant surgery makes it possible for implant procedures to be faster, to predict them with extreme precision, and have a longer-lasting success rate. In fact, success rates now hover around 97 percent.
