For most aspects of your dental health care and treatment, being minimally invasive is the best way to protect your long-term oral health. Changes to your teeth and oral tissues are often permanent, so keeping them to a minimum should always be the goal. However, dental implant placement requires oral surgery, which you might not immediately associate with being a conservative procedure. At our Ft. Worth, TX, dental implant office, we understand that, which is why we practice a minimally invasive, highly personalized approach to placing and restoring dental implants in-house.
Approaching treatment conservatively
The only way to perform minimally invasive dental treatment is to understand and address the specific concerns of each patient. That means performing a thorough examination and personal consultation before ever recommending treatment. Using advanced digital imaging technology, including 3D digital scanning, we can gain a comprehensive view into the unique nature of your oral health needs. That includes the health of your remaining natural teeth roots, the strength of your jawbone, and more. We’ll also encourage you to be involved and ask about your quality of life, goals for your smile, most pressing concerns, and answers to any questions you may have.
A minimally invasive approach to placement
Once we know exactly what your smile needs and what your personal preferences are, we can plan your minimally invasive dental implant placement. Our advanced digital imaging technology allows us to analyze the optimal placement and angle of each dental implant post to absorb the pressure of your bite. We can create a digital surgical guide that can be used in real-time during the procedure to help guide the placement of each post in its optimal position. This helps ensure the success of your implant placement procedure and minimizes the need to have your implants adjusted or replaced in the future.
Using minimally invasive dental implant posts
The fact that dental implant posts have to be surgically inserted into your jawbone is what makes the procedure seem impossible to make more conservative. It’s also the reason why some people may require additional treatment before their implants can be placed. For example, patients with weaker jawbones due to prolonged tooth loss might’ve been told they need jawbone grafting, or that they don’t qualify for implants at all. Our options include mini dental implants and small-diameter posts that are designed to be placed even in areas of jawbone that have less-than-usual mass and density.
