At Lakewood Dental Group, Dr. Shaun Sigurdson and Dr. Mihir Patel believe that our patients deserve nothing but the best oral care. It’s for this reason that our team stays committed to implementing the best dental technology into our Lakewood practice. 

That’s why our talented dentists in Dallas, TX, use 3D computer-guided implant placement technology to place high-quality dental implants with unmatched precision and accuracy. As a result, our patients experience gentler care, faster healing, and fewer complications after dental implant surgery. 

What is 3D computer-guided implant placement?

3D computer-guided implant placement is a contemporary solution to conventional oral surgery methods. In the past, dental professionals relied upon hazy, film-based X-rays to determine where and how to place dental implants. Today, however, digital imaging with advanced computer software allows our team to place dental implants with unparalleled accuracy and precision. 

At Lakewood Dental Group, Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel take detailed digital impressions of their patients’ mouths to reveal precise topographical information about the oral cavity and its underlying structures. This takes the guesswork out of conventional oral surgery practices and leads to safer, more effective implant placement. 

Additionally, Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel can create custom-made surgical guides using the advanced software that captures patients’ detailed oral impressions. As a result, our dentists can determine precisely where to insert dental implants before beginning surgery, and they can use the custom-made surgical guides to further assist them during the implant placement procedure.

Why choose 3D computer-guided implant placement over traditional methods?

There are many reasons to choose 3D computer-guided implant placement over traditional placement methods, including:

  • Precise planning
  • Unmatched control
  • Optimal implant placement
  • Better, faster results

Precise Planning

It is impossible to know where or how to place a dental implant just by looking at the mouth. 3D computer-guided implant technology allows Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel to see what the bone tissue looks like under the gums. As a result, they can see areas of low and high bone density, which helps them determine where to place dental implants for optimal success.

Unmatched Control

Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel can map out a patient’s entire oral cavity using 3D imaging technology. This allows our team to intricately plan every step of the implant procedure, including custom-made surgical guides. These computer-generated surgical guides give our team more control over dental implant placement compared to more traditional methods.

Optimal Implant Placement

Dental implants have an extremely high success rate of approximately 98%. One of the major factors that contributes to a successful implantation is determining exactly where and at what angle to place a dental implant.

With 3D computer-guided implant placement, Dr. Sigurdson and Dr. Patel can optimize the location and placement of dental implants, resulting in a more efficient and successful procedure. 

Better, Faster Results

3D computer-guided implant technology allows our team to place dental implants faster than traditional methods. Additionally, patients tend to heal better and faster with fully-guided implant placement compared to conventional placement methods.
