What are

dental implants?

Dental implants are a popular and effective way to replace missing teeth. They are typically made of titanium and are surgically implanted into the jawbone. Once in place, dental implants fuse with the jawbone and act as a foundation for artificial teeth. Dental implants can be used to support a single dental crown, a dental bridge, or a full set of dentures.

How are

dental implants

are placed?

CONSULTATION

The first step in the dental implant process is to have a consultation with Dr. Malespin to discuss your goals and concerns. During the consultation, Dr. Malespin will perform a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, gums and bone to determine if dental implants are right for you. He does this using 3D-Technology, starting with a CBCT Scan

CBCT SCAN

A CBCT scan is a type of dental X-ray that produces three-dimensional images of the teeth, gums, and jawbone. This information is used to plan dental implant treatment. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, which only provide two-dimensional images, CBCT scans allow dental implants to be placed with greater precision. As a result, dental implants Houston can be placed with fewer complications and a shorter recovery time. In addition, CBCT scans can be used to assess the health of the jawbone and identify any potential problems that could affect dental implant success. For these reasons, CBCT scans are an essential tool for planning dental implant treatment. He will then plan your surgery by creating a Surgical guide.

SURGICAL GUIDE

Surgical Guides for dental implants are used to help place dental implants in the jawbone. The guide provides a template for the placement of the dental implant in the jawbone so that it can be placed in the proper location and angle. This helps to ensure that the dental implant is placed in the correct location and that it will have a successful outcome. Surgical guides for dental implants are made from different materials, including plastic, metal, or titanium. They are available in different sizes and shapes to fit different patients’ mouths. Surgical guides for dental implants are placed over the teeth and gums prior to surgery. They help to keep the dental implant in place during surgery and prevent it from moving around. Surgical guides for dental implants are removed after surgery is complete.

GUIDED DENTAL IMPLANT SURGERY

The success of dental implants depends on their placement, which must be precise in order to ensure proper function and aesthetics. Guided dental implant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses computer-guided technology to ensure the accuracy of implant placement. This technique reduces the risk of complications and leads to fewer dental implant failures. As a result, guided dental implant surgery is an increasingly popular choice for patients who are seeking a long-term solution for their dental needs.

Parts of a

dental implants?

A dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed into the jawbone to act as a tooth root. Once the implant has bonded with the bone, an abutment is attached. The abutment protrudes from the gum line and provides a connection point for the dental crown. The crown is made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, and it completes the implant process. Dental implants are a popular choice for tooth replacement because they are durable and long-lasting. With proper care, your implant can last a lifetime.
