The dental implant procedure is one of the most predictable and effective ways of replacing teeth. Whether you need a single tooth or multiple teeth replaced, dental implants—both traditional dental implants and Same Day Teeth®—are great options. In this blog post, we’ll examine the technology of the dental implant procedure, this time focusing in on the dental implant itself—the supporting structure for the prosthetic.
When replacing multiple teeth with dental implants, the oral surgeon first meets with the patient for an overall assessment of health and to determine if the patient is a candidate for dental implants. Sometimes other treatments are required for patients to qualify as a candidate for dental implants. Imaging and discussion of treatment options will also take place to help the surgeon determine the course of action for the dental implant procedure.
Placement of the dental implants and the prosthetic teeth will follow. Temporary prosthetic teeth can be placed by the oral surgeon during the period of integration in which the implant fuses with the patient’s bone. Most people are able to return to normal activities shortly after implants are placed. Pain and discomfort can be treated with medication prescribed by the oral surgeon. Placement of the custom-made and color-matched prosthetics will occur the same day the implants are placed with Same Day Teeth®.
The implant process for Same Day Teeth® uses the most advanced technology in the industry to help us plan your surgery with the greatest possible accuracy and the highest level of precision. All of our dental implant procedures begin with a full imaging workup using our 3d cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan. The CBCT scan allows us to evaluate your underlying bone structure and plan for the optimal placement of your dental implants. With the images we gather, we develop a treatment plan using our surgical planning software. This gives us a strategy to use throughout your procedure. Our dental implant surgery is computer guided, using the nSequence® proprietary protocol to find the best placement locations for your dental implants.
