Guided Implant Surgery
If you have lost even a single tooth, it can reduce the functionalities and aesthetics of your smile. At Edmonds Dental Studio, we offer guided implant surgery that can help your smile regain its former glory!
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a surgical process that is done to replace a missing or severely damaged adult tooth. The procedure involves replacing the tooth root with a metal implant and replacing the natural tooth crown with an artificial crown to restore your chewing, biting and aesthetic functions.
The procedure can take anywhere from several months to over a year, depending on various factors like the number of dental implants required, healing speed, age, health, jaw density, and more. Often times, the procedure is also accompanied by a bone graft in the jaw so that the implant can have a stable foundation. The crowns are placed once the jawbone and gums have healed.
What is a Guided Implant Surgery?
We at Edmonds Dental Studio use guided dental implant surgery that involves using state-of-the-art machinery and dental technology to help us in the manufacturing and emplacement of the implants in a precise and more efficient way. Computer-guided implant surgery is considerably faster and often provides the benefit of getting new teeth in a single dental appointment.
This improved technology allows Dr. Hasan Dbouk to get a more comprehensive picture of the patient’s mouth and produce the right kind of dental implants. With the guided implant surgery, you can have a new and beautiful smile in just one day.
What Does a Guided Implant Surgery Involve?
The technology that is most commonly used in guided implant surgery includes computerized topography (CT)scans, 3D imaging, CAD/CAM computer imaging software and digital radiographs.
At Edmonds Dental Studio, Dr. Hasan Dbouk will first take a CT scan of the patient’s mouth and will come with a personalized treatment plan that is created based on the patient’s exact needs.
Dr. Hasan Dbouk will then use the 3Shape TRIOS®, an award-winning digital scanner to scan your mouth instead of relying on traditional impression material that can be uncomfortable for you.
Guided dental implant surgery is one of the recent advances in the field of dental technology that makes for quicker, more comfortable, and more effective treatment.
Benefits of Guided Implant Surgery
If you have a broken or missing tooth that needs to be removed and replaced, dental implant surgery may be the best solution as it does not impact the health of other teeth.
However, to ensure that look, feel, and function of your artificial teeth are almost exactly like your natural teeth, the emplacement needs to be perfect.
By using guided implant surgery, Dr. Hasan Dbouk can carry out an implant procedure to produce an effective and aesthetically pleasing outcome while significantly reducing the risk of human errors. Hence, guided dental implants surgery is one of the safest procedures with the most effective and best-looking teeth.
In addition, guided implant surgery also helps Dr. Hasan Dbouk to place abutments and plan how much space will be required for an artificial crown.
