The process begins with a CT scan. Using computerized tomography, our dentist will use a technology that combines hundreds of individual X-ray images to allow for a full 3D cross-section of your mouth. The scan itself is painless.
Intra-oral photos are taken of your teeth, gums, and oral tissue. Rather than using a traditional mold to take an impression of your mouth, our dentist uses a small intra-oral wand, comfortably inserted into your mouth. We capture high-quality digital images of the layout of your mouth to aid our technicians in creating implants that match your unique oral anatomy.
Our dentist, will virtually plan the restoration procedure for predictable, aesthetic results. You see your smile digitally before the treatment using the information from your digital impressions and CT scan to calculate the exact position of your dental implants, including selecting the type of implants by, color, size, and shape.
Once you’ve approved your favorite implants, our talented team of technicians begins the custom fabrication process. The post is made from high-quality biocompatible materials, like titanium. Then the abutment, which holds the crown to the implant post, is placed. Finally, The replacement tooth or teeth are crafted. Whichever type of artificial tooth is chosen, it will be crafted to blend perfectly with your natural teeth.
The high-grade, implant restoration will be placed in your mouth using our advanced digitally guided procedure that ensures a secure, lifetime replacement uniquely suited to your dental specifications. With the placement of your dental implants, the guided surgery process is complete.
