Frequently Asked Questions

What does the dental implants process look like?

The dental implant process is a combination of precise planning and technology. Initially, a detailed assessment is done, often involving CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) scans, which offer a 3D view of the oral structures. This detailed imagery helps our doctors determine the best implant placement locations. With 3D printing, surgical guides are then crafted to ensure the utmost accuracy during the implant surgery. Once the implants are placed and given time to integrate with the jawbone, the final prosthesis, whether a crown, bridge, or denture, is fixed atop the implant. The use of advanced technology like CBCT and 3D printing ensures the procedure is precise, safe, and tailored to the patient's unique anatomy.

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Suitable candidates for dental implants typically have good oral health, with sufficient jawbone to support the implant and healthy gums free from periodontal disease. Additionally, candidates should be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental visits. Factors like heavy smoking, certain chronic diseases, or a history of radiation therapy in the neck/head area might need evaluation. It's essential to consult with your dentist for a comprehensive assessment.

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line. Titanium, being biocompatible, fuses with the bone, providing a stable base for replacement teeth or bridges. Once in place, they don't come loose like dentures can, and they help maintain bone health by providing the necessary stimulation that was previously offered by the natural tooth root.
