Surgically Guided Dental Implants
For tooth restorations, dental implants offer a natural fit, look and feel that is unparalleled. While the process can be lengthy from the time of surgery to the final fitting of the permanent crown, it is worth the investment to have the function and beauty of a restored tooth. The quality and fit of a dental implant start with surgical placement. The precision of insertion of the implant post is critical to the end result. At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we offer surgically guided dental implants to improve this crucial element of the implant process.
Dental implant surgery involves inserting a titanium post into the jaw bone, and it will become the new “root” for the prosthetic tooth. To ensure that the new tooth will be straight and conform to the rest of the mouth alignment, the insertion must be completed precisely. This can be difficult if done without images to guide the process. The post may be in the right place but assuring the exact position for the most comfortable and natural fit requires experience, expertise and use of advanced technology.
Advanced 3D Imaging for Implant Surgery
Surgically guided dental implant surgery uses 3D imaging to allow our implant dentists to view the jaw, teeth and gum tissue as the post is being inserted. This advanced imaging system gives us the visual guide to ensure we can precisely place the implant in the correct position for the best results. Not only does this help improve placement, it can also reduce the risk of complications and shorten the treatment time needed, which is beneficial to our patients.
