Implanting the Root-Like Posts
Dental implants consist of multiple parts – a biocompatible post, an abutment, and a custom restoration. The first phase of your treatment will be to carefully plan the placement and angle of your implant posts, then use digital technology to create a surgical guide for implanting the posts. After your procedure, healing may take up 4-6 months, depending on the type and number of implant posts that you’ve received.
Planning Your Implant Placement
In order to fully restore your smile, your dental implants must serve several important roles. For example, each post must absorb at least as much bite pressure as the tooth root that it replaces, and must be angled properly to do so. Considerations such as jawbone structure and density, tooth migration (if applicable), and more must also be taken into account. For optimal results, we utilize advanced digital imaging and diagnostic technology, which allows us to create a digital surgical guide for enhanced precision. We’ll also discuss any medical or oral health conditions, medications, or other influences that might impact the success of your surgery. If you desire IV sedation, we will also make arrangements for that.
Benefits of Guided Dental Implant Surgery
The benefits of dental implants are many, but patients can only enjoy them if their implants are properly placed in their optimal positions from the start. Guided implant surgery and the use of one-piece implant posts (vs. two-piece, or screw-in, posts) helps ensure accuracy and precision throughout your entire procedure. The use of a digital guide offers several benefits for your treatment, including:
- Minimally invasive treatment, with faster healing
- Significantly reduced risk of implant failure
- Greater preservation of your jawbone structure
- Optimal support for your crown, bridge, or denture
- And more
