What are dental implants?

Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots upon which our team can place a quality restoration–like a dental crown, bridge, or dentures–to replace one or more missing teeth. As such, dental implants restore patients’ biting, chewing, and speaking function, as well as their confidence and self-image.

What is fully-guided implant surgery?

Fully-guided dental implant surgery is a modern solution to traditional oral surgery methods. Using advanced computer programming, Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel can take high-quality digital impressions of their patients’ mouths to plan every step of the dental implant procedure before they begin treatment. 

Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel can also create surgical guides that help them place dental implants with far more control and precision compared to traditional methods. Furthermore, the guided system completely eliminates the need to peel back gum tissue to place the titanium implants, which makes recovery faster and less painful.

What are the benefits of fully-guided dental implant surgery?

There are numerous benefits of fully-guided implant surgery, including:

  • Better planning
  • More control
  • Precise implant placement
  • Faster results 

Better Planning

Dental professionals must insert implants directly into the jawbone. But, the jawbone is covered by gum tissue, making it impossible to see where and how to place an implant into the jawbone. This means that, without 3D imaging technology, dental professionals go into implant surgery virtually blind. 

With computer-guided implant surgery, Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel know exactly what the jawbone looks like before placing the implant. This means that they can plan where and how to place the implant well in advance.

More Control

With better planning comes more control. Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel use a special computer program to create custom-made surgical guides. These guides help them place dental implants with more precision and control than traditional methods.

Precise Implant Placement

With the use of surgical guides, our team ensures that dental implants are being placed at exactly the right angle in the most stable location in the jawbone. This gives the implant the opportunity to properly fuse–or osseointegrate–into the bone tissue, which contributes to the nearly 98% success rate of dental implants.

Faster Results

Most patients want to get in and out of the dentist’s office as soon as possible. Fully-guided implant surgery significantly reduces the amount of time that patients are in the office. Furthermore, patients tend to heal better and faster with computer-guided implant surgery compared to traditional surgical methods.
