Overseeing Your Implant Placement With Technology

santa rosa implant technologyDental implants are an advanced option for replacing missing teeth, one that could last a lifetime in some cases. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa and Rohnert Park, CA, oral and maxillofacial surgeons talk about how we employ advanced technology to plan and guide the placement of your new dental implants.

Planning Your Procedure

Every smile is unique, and therefore requires a custom approach to securing new teeth. We want to not only choose the best position and angle to insert your new teeth, but to understand what caused your tooth loss in the first place. First, we will take digital and panoramic x-ray images, using technology that doesn’t require development in harsh chemicals and uses a fraction of the radiation. The images will be incredibly clear, and allow us a complete view of your teeth, roots, jaw, oral structures, sinus cavities, and more. We also assess the safety of the jawbone to make sure your smile can support dental implants. The diagnostic process also includes the use of 3D cone beam scans, providing 3D images of your head and mouth. This lets us diagnose concerns, and identify nerves and blood vessels to avoid during the placement process.

Guiding Your New Teeth in Place

After we plan the procedure, we will use digital technology to create a custom surgical guide, one that will help guide the implant posts into their proper positions in your jaw. We know how far to insert the post, and the angle that will best support a new tooth or possibly even a prosthetic, like a bridge or denture. The guide ensures the success of your new tooth, so you can smile with confidence for decades to come, as the new teeth help prevent the breakdown in the jaw that follows tooth loss.

Tooth Loss Solutions

Dental implants will act like new roots, keeping your jawbone strong and stable, and preventing further tooth loss in your smile. We can address a single missing tooth, or use multiple posts to place a bridge, partial, or full denture that will last for decades to come, maybe even a lifetime. Your new dentures won’t slip, and will allow you to eat your favorite foods and smile without hesitation.
