Smile With Confidence

If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can be the ideal solution to restore your smile. Dental implants from Bob Dalsania Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offer a permanent and natural-looking replacement option that allows you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is a titanium device that replaces your tooth’s root so we can cover it with a crown or bridge. Dr. Bob uses CBCT technology to create panoramic scans of your mouth, giving you more personalized treatment and better results.

These posts provide a sturdy foundation for dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants fuse with the jawbone over time, creating a strong and durable anchor for the replacement teeth.

Differences Between Implants & Dentures

Dental implants and dentures are viable tooth replacement options, but there are key differences between them:

  • Stability: Dental implants offer superior stability as they are anchored securely into the jawbone, whereas dentures rely on adhesives or clasps for support.
  • Bone Health: Implants help preserve jawbone density, while dentures do not provide the same stimulation, leading to bone loss over time.
  • Functionality: Dental implants provide a more natural chewing experience and greater biting force than dentures.
  • Longevity: With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, while dentures may need to be replaced or adjusted over time.

How Dental Implants Work

The process of placing dental implants includes a few steps:

1. First Consultation: During your consultation with Dr. Bob, he will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants.
2. Tooth Extraction: Dr. Bob will remove the remaining broken or cracked portions of the tooth to provide space for your dental implant.
3. Bone Graft (if necessary): Bone grafts are needed when there is a lack of adequate bone structure.

4. Dental Implant Placement: Dr. Bob uses 3D surgical guides to secure your dental implant in the best placement beneath your gums and into your jawbone to allow integration. After implant placement, it takes several months for the jaw to heal correctly.
5. Abutment Placement: An abutment will screw into the crown and is the supporting structure from the implant that allows a crown to attach.
6. Crown Placement: After a few weeks of healing, your crown will be attached to the abutment

The Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Improved Looks: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, enhancing your smile and facial aesthetics.
  • Better-Working Biting & Chewing: With dental implants, you can enjoy restored chewing ability and eat your favorite foods without worry.
  • Long-Lasting Solution: Dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement option that can last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Preservation of Jawbone: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss and maintaining facial structure.
  • Improved Speech: Dental implants allow you to speak clearly and confidently without worrying about slippage or discomfort.
  • Convenience & Comfort: Unlike removable dentures, dental implants eliminate the need for messy adhesives or removal for cleaning, providing convenience and comfort in your daily life.

Placing Implants Using 3D Surgical Guides

At Bob Dalsania Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we’re committed to staying at the forefront of dental technology to provide the most advanced and precise treatments available. One such technology that Dr. Bob uses is 3D surgical guides for dental implant placement.

Precision & Accuracy

By incorporating 3D surgical guides into the dental implant procedure, Dr. Bob can achieve higher precision and accuracy.

These guides allow for a more predictable and efficient implant placement process, ensuring optimal positioning and alignment of the implants within the jawbone. This precision minimizes the risk of complications and increases the success rate of the treatment.

What are 3D Surgical Guides?

A 3D surgical guide is a custom-made tool that aids in precisely placing your dental implants. It uses advanced digital imaging technology, such as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), which Dr. Bob uses to provide detailed three-dimensional images of your teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures.

Dr. Bob uses these images to generate a virtual model of your mouth to carefully plan the implant placement process.

Experience With 3D Surgical Guides

Dr. Bob has undergone extensive training and has the expertise to effectively utilize 3D surgical guides. He combines his experience, skill, and the latest technology to give you exceptional dental implant treatments that deliver long-lasting, natural-looking results.

By incorporating 3D surgical guides into the dental implant process, Dr. Bob ensures you get personalized and precise treatment. This advanced technology allows optimal implant placement, improved aesthetics, functionality, and overall satisfaction.

Benefits of 3D Surgical Guides

Using 3D surgical guides offers several key benefits for you and Dr. Bob, including:

Improved Treatment Plan

The 3D surgical guide system helps Dr. Bob plan where to put dental implants. The system makes a virtual model that shows the best spot for each implant based on things like how strong the bone is and where other teeth are.

Minimally Invasive

3D surgical guides help dentists do surgery with less cutting. Dr. Bob can plan where to cut to cause the least damage to the body around the implant, helping you feel better and heal faster.

More Safety

Using 3D surgical guides makes implant placement safer and more successful. This technology helps Dr. Bob avoid hitting important parts like nerves or sinuses.

Saves You Time & Money

Using 3D surgical guides streamlines the implant placement process, so you'll have fewer appointments, reduced chair time, and potentially lower overall treatment costs.

Which Option is Right for Me?

Determining whether dental implants or dentures are right for you depends on various factors, including your oral health, jawbone density, budget, and personal preferences. Dr. Bob will thoroughly examine your oral health, discuss your goals and concerns, and provide a personalized treatment plan.
