Dental implants have changed the face of dentistry in the last 25 years. In basic terms, the implant is a replacement for the root of the tooth.
Like a natural tooth root, the implant is secured in the jawbone. Dental Implants look and feel like natural teeth. Compared to dentures, it's much easier to eat, smile, and talk with dental implants. We use CAT scan technology, architectural design software (specific to each patient’s skeletal mouth) and robotic milling technology to accurately plan and execute the surgery, enabling us to create the best outcome.
Dental Implant components:
At Pleasantsmiles, the dignity of the mouth is our primary focus. We can use a dental implant to replace dentition from one missing tooth or multiples to restore an entire mouth. Some believe that with experience a dentist can determine through x-rays and surgery where to place the implant for the best outcome. Fortunately, we have advanced from this process and are now able to provide a much more precise and sustainable outcome. These procedures require more skill, planning, and equipment. Each patient’s surgery is planned on a computer with their exact bony anatomy documented and utilized. A robotic milled precision guide is used to place the implant(s) in the precise location identified in virtual surgery during the planning phase.
The team at Pleasantsmiles is at the forefront of this cutting-edge dentistry. We can provide video documentation to our patients upon request, and with our patient’s permission, we provide more detailed documentation to other dentists for learning purposes.
For those who suffer with dental anxiety or those needing more extensive and complex procedures such as Teeth in a Day or other major treatment, considering #sedation can be life changing.
