Dental Implant Presentation
To provide you with a better understanding of dental implants, we have provided the following multimedia presentation. Many common questions pertaining to dental implants are discussed.
Dental implants are a preferable replacement option for missing teeth available for most patients. There are many new procedures that now allow most patients to be candidates for dental implant placement. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all missing teeth. They can be used to support non-removable or removable tooth replacement prosthesis.
Wisdom Teeth Lacey WA
Wisdom teeth or third molars, are the last teeth to develop. Many patients do not have adequate room for them to come into their mouth and be functional. Due to the lack of space for their eruption they become impacted. Left in the mouth, impacted teeth can cause pain, infection, or develop pathology. The pathology can cause bone loss, resorption, and/or damage to adjacent teeth and structures. As the teeth develop the roots of the teeth can grow around and in contact with the nerve that is responsible for sensation to the lower lip, chin and teeth. As the roots become longer (more developed) and the patient gets older there are increased risks that can be associated with the removal of impacted teeth. There are risks associated with any surgery but they can be lessened by having wisdom teeth removed at a young age prior to the roots becoming fully formed.
X-Guide for Dental Implants
We are excited to have X-Guide by X-navigation as a way to prepare and place dental implants with more precision for our patients.
X-Guide is dynamic 3-D navigation for dental implant placement. It is a revolutionary new system that will extend the capabilities of our cone beam CT system for more accurate implant planning and placement procedures. X-Guide boasts dynamic 3-D navigation that delivers interactive, turn-by-turn guidance which gives the ability to improve the precision and accuracy of implant position, angulation and depth. It gives us the ability to improve implant site preparation and delivery for more exact implant placement. It is like GPS for our drill.
