When you lose one or more natural teeth, then we could use dental implants to restore and rebuild your smile. To ensure we place them with precision and accuracy, and enable your implants to support a new smile, we may guide the process of advanced cone beam CT scanning technology. In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist will talk about the process and outline the benefits of implant dentistry.
Addressing Missing Teeth
By replacing your lost teeth with dental implant, you actually replace the lost root portion with a post made from biocompatible titanium. The implant post then bonds with the bone tissue, acting as a new root and stimulating the growth of bone tissue, preventing the loss of mass and density that follows tooth loss, and preventing you from losing further teeth in many cases! You also avoid issues like an aged appearance, TMJ disorder or bruxism, and increased risks of decay and disease.
Planning and Guiding Placement
We need to plan and guide the process carefully to help you enjoy a full smile, with prosthetics that last for decades to come, possibly even a lifetime. To begin, we take a series of detailed CT images, using a fraction of the radiation employed with traditional systems. We plan how to insert them to avoid nerve tissues and to ensure they can best support your new smile. The entire placement process will be guided to further ensure accuracy and precision.
Restoring Your New Teeth
After the placement, osseointegration will occur to bond the bone tissue and titanium, posts. Once this occurs, we move forward with addressing the visible portion of your new smile. For example, we attach abutments that secure a crown for individual missing teeth. For multiple lost teeth, we could use multiple abutments to attach a bridge or denture that never slips when you eat or speak. You then regain the ability to eat your favorite foods again, and also speak without difficulty. You also avoid further missing teeth too! If you have any questions about addressing one or more missing teeth with implant technology, or about the digital scanning systems we use to plan and guide the process, then contact our team today. We want to help you maintain a full and functional smile, one that looks great and also leaves you eager to smile!
