What is Dental Implant Surgery?
Dental implant surgery is used to replace a tooth that has been lost or severely decayed. Removing the tooth and its roots is done by replacing them with an implant and a crown made out of porcelain.
The treatment is lengthy and sometimes painful. It is surgically removed from the tooth’s root beneath the gum line. A patient’s jaw bone needs to be grafted if its density has been compromised.
After surgery, it’s usual for the body to take several months to recover. The crowns cannot be put on until the gums and jawbone have fully healed.
What is Guided Implant Surgery?
This dental implant surgery is when a dentist employs state-of-the-art machinery and scanning technology to “instruct” or assist them in fabricating and placing dental implants in a more rapid, specific, and accurate manner than previously possible.
Computer-guided implant surgery is substantially faster than traditional implant surgery, and in many cases, the patient can have their replacement teeth in a single dental office visit.
Using this new and enhanced dental implant surgery, it is possible to make more accurate dental implants because it provides the dentist with a complete picture of the patient’s mouth. These procedures, which formerly required several dental office visits, can now be completed in a single day, culminating in surgery.
A patient can get new teeth and a rejuvenated grin as little as a single day!
3D imaging, computed tomography (CT) scans, computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and digital x-rays routinely utilize computer-guided dental implant surgery.
The following is an overview of the guided implant surgery procedure:
The first step is to take CT scan of the patient. Once this is taken, the team will create a personalized treatment plan. One that is unique for each individual patient. To construct the digital model of the crowns, CAD design tools and 3D imaging technology are used in conjunction. Dental labs utilize CAD software to generate digital restorations from models submitted to them. The dental specialist will next connect the new crowns to the implants. Finally, digital x-rays ensure that the implants and crowns are properly positioned and sized.
Dental implant surgery (computer-guided) is one of the many technological advancements in the dental business that have resulted in more effective treatment and a more pleasant patient experience for both patients and doctors.
Guided implant surgery should be available to all patients, even if your dentist’s office doesn’t currently provide it. You can improve the quality of your recommended implant surgery treatments even further by using Arrowhead Dental Laboratory’s state-of-the-art software and equipment.
