Procedures and prosthetic dental solutions such as implant-retained dentures or bridges are largely streamlined today through the adoption of radical practices and advanced dental technology. In the past, treatment used to be long and drawn out due to the need for multiple specialists in crafting your custom implant. Today, however, and in-house lab, minimally-invasive approach, and dedicated team can make your treatment simpler and more precise. In today’s blog, your Fort Worth, TX oral surgeon discusses what the process is like when meeting with our team, and why it is important that patients have a full and informed planning stage.
We Discuss Your Needs
Restoring oral function is a major benefit that accompanies implants. The reason for this is because a biocompatible post can function as an artificial tooth root, working to help your crowns properly absorb the pressure of your bite. What’s more, strategic placement helps ensure a higher rate of success. To reach these steps, however, it takes a thorough understanding of you and your unique needs.
Attempting to just rush into a treatment is always going to be a recipe for disaster. After all, many people experience anxiety about receiving treatment in the first place, and nothing is worse than overcoming that fear just to have it affirmed by a traumatizing experience. This is where our team differs, however.
We believe that our patients should be well-informed and completely comfortable before pursuing their treatment, and we are dedicated to doing so by truly getting to know you and your unique needs during your planning phase. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
Digitally-Mapping Your Treatment
After we discuss your unique needs and how best to address them, we will walk through the entire process with you before it takes place. We begin by explaining how we use guided implant surgery in order to make for enhanced precision when placing your post. Following this, we will digitally map your treatment and discuss the process behind doing so. What’s more, utilizing a guided treatment with a digital map helps to ensure that your new posts have a greater chance of lasting for life. To learn more about this stage, contact our office.
Another major benefit discussed during your planning phase is what the optimal placement might look like for ensuring successful treatment. We utilize computed tomography (CT) scanning to combine multiple x-rays from different angles to generate a precise 3D model of your smile. From here, we can discuss the optimal area to place your posts so that they can properly absorb your bites pressure.
