Advanced Dental Implant Placement Offers Better Results
Any dentist can “place” a dental implant, but only those with high-resolution 3D imaging capabilities can plan out your procedure by assessing every angle of your smile, including the width, height, and volume of your bone.
At Brighter Day Dental, Dr. Dokko uses 3D Tekscan® equipment as opposed to two-dimensional x-rays when it comes to implant therapy. This is an extremely important step in deciding where implants are to be placed.
The 3D Difference
3D images allow us to know exactly where your nerve structures are. One of the biggest errors in placing implants is installing them too closely to the nerve (causing pain and discomfort.) With Tekscan®, our Concord dentist can see your nerves before the surgery, ensuring proper implant placement.
In more complicated situations, we can also create a computer generated surgical guide. This also means you can have implants when a previous dentist might have told you they weren’t an option.
Types of Dental Implant Restorations
After your implants have integrated with the bone, we can restore them with a variety of tooth replacement options. Some of which include:
Implant Crowns — A single implant and crown is one of the very best choices for replacing an individual tooth. Instead of spreading out the biting forces of multiple teeth onto two teeth with a fixed bridge, we can recreate a brand-new tooth that is just as durable (if not stronger) than your natural tooth was.
Multi-tooth Bridges — Instead of wearing a partial denture, you can use dental implants to support a bridge of nearly any length.
Overdentures — Your dentures can be stabilized by snapping them onto as few as two to four implant locators. Yet, they’re still removable for easy care and maintenance.
Caring for your implants is just as easy as brushing and flossing your natural teeth. With good ongoing care, you can enjoy your implant for the rest of your life.
