Does your missing tooth embarrass you? Smiling does not have to be awkward or shameful. If you are looking to make changes to your smile, you have options. Modern dentistry has developed restoration methods that look and feel natural. Guided implant surgery doesn’t just bring back your smile. It restores your oral health and boosts your confidence. Implants placed with accuracy last longer and align your jawbone. This gives you comfort while eating and the freedom to smile without covering your mouth.
What Is a Guided Implant?
These artificial dental implants are surgically placed where you need them. This method utilizes software that scans your mouth and produces a 3D print. This 3D model enables the dentist to map out the best procedure to install your dental implant.
The guided surgical technique is secure, and the outcome is predictable. This makes the procedure safer than other dental implant surgeries. It has also made dental implant surgeries possible that would otherwise not be.
Benefits of Guided Implant Surgery
Here are some of the many benefits:
Fewer risks: This minimally invasive surgery installs implants with accuracy unlike ever before. Its planning technology shows your teeth, jaw, and nearby soft tissue structures. Seeing these structures reduces the risk of complications arising during surgery. That is because before operating, the dentist can see where to place the implant inside your mouth.
Accurate implant installation: This surgery is more accurate than older techniques. This enables the surgeon to do a more precise installation of the implants. This happens because modern technology allows your dentist to take CT scans of your jaw. These scans enable the dentist to print 3D pictures of your mouth’s anatomy. The software then uses these images to produce a surgical guide for your ideal implant placement.
Shorter surgical time: The guide created by CT imagery prevents guesswork during surgery. Your dentist follows the guide step-by-step. This shortens the time you would spend having old-fashioned dental implant surgeries. As such, you can begin the recovery process sooner.
Immediate functional restoration: Past surgical recovery took several months. It also took months before you would see the revival of dental function. When it comes to the guided method, you can get same-day implant placements. This lets you enjoy reinstated oral function after just one treatment. It also minimizes months of discomfort so you can smile again sooner.
Damaged jawbone installation: Losing teeth damages your jawbone. If they have not been replaced over time, your jawbone can change shape. In the past, dental surgeons could not install implants on a damaged jawbone. Technological advancements now enable your surgeon to see and understand each patient’s unique jaw structure. Your dentist can now optimize implant placement, even with a damaged jawbone.
Guided implant surgery’s predictability offers safe results for regaining your smile. The procedure’s accuracy ensures you receive the implants you deserve.
