Have you decided to replace your missing teeth with dental implants? If so, congratulations on choosing a tooth replacement option that will serve you well for many years. Now that you’ve decided to receive dental implants, it’s time to figure out who you trust to perform the procedure. Technology is one of the factors you should consider when choosing a dentist in Thousand Oaks, CA, to place your implants.
How Technology Helps the Implant Placement Process
During computer guided dental implant surgery, a digital CAT SCAN is used to create computer data that produces virtual surgery. During the process, a highly-precise surgical guide is created for the implant anchors. No incisions or sutures are required during the procedure. Computer guided dental implant technology offers a variety of benefits to both the doctor and the patient, including:
Computer guided dental implant surgery improves treatment accuracy because it delivers extremely precise images of the treatment site, as well as dental structures around it. The technology makes it possible for Dr. Jacqueline Subka to create a very detailed treatment plan and place the dental implant exactly where it should go. Detailed images allow Dr. Subka to perform the surgery faster than she would be able to do without computer guided technology.
Since the gum tissue is cut with a guided laser, no standard incisions are made and no sutures are required. The unique surgical process causes minimal post-operative swelling and provides reduced down time during recovery. There is also a reduced risk of complications and a more predictable long-term treatment outcome when laser guided technology is used to place dental implants.
