Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth or to anchor dentures so there is no movement when chewing. Implants are inserted into the bone of the missing tooth, and a porcelain crown is joined to it. This provides the most natural appearance, which is functional and will last a lifetime.
The modern dental implant has made huge advancement in the last 20 years. From their surface texture/coating, design, materials and advancements in manufacturing, this has made dental implants very predictable.
Before we can place an implant there has to be enough bone to hold the implant. Growing new bone is one of the exciting new chapters in dental implantology and medicine. Advancements in biomaterials and techniques have allowed us to grow new bone in implant sites. So now implants can be placed where it was once impossible.
With 3 dimensional X-rays, intraoral scans, and computer software allows us to virtually place the size, type, and implant brand for the optimum position.
From this plan a 3D printed guide is made, this is used in the mouth to guide in the placement of the implant in the exact position as we planned virtually.
The type and brand of implants used at Cosmetic Dental is dependent on the implant design needed for the specific site. There is no one brand that covers all situations.
At Cosmetic Dental everything thing is done in house from the planning, implant placement, crown fitting or denture insertion. Because it is all done in house we are very competitive on price, achieve outstanding results, and the patient is not sent to different clinics.
If you are looking to replace your missing teeth, we will first examine your mouth, take records, and take X-rays to produce 3D virtual plans.
