With new 3D rendering and printing technology, we are able to provide a dental implant surgery service to replace missing teeth with never-before-seen precision. With the help of 3D software, dental implants – whether single tooth or multiple implants – can be planned virtually and printed into a surgical guide that is personalised to each patient. This means that by the time comes to undergo dental implant surgery, every aspect of the procedure has been precisely mapped, leaving very little room for human error.
The Dental Implant Surgery Process
Dental implant surgery is a very simple and predictable process. Initially, you will carry out a consultation whereby Cone-Beam CT (CBCT) scans and intra-oral scans will be taken using very new and advanced technology. This ensures we can transfer your individual data across to our 3D software, and accurate dental implant surgical guides can be rendered digitally.
From there, the data of your personal implant positioning and size is 3D printed as a surgical device. Every single person who receives dental implants through this method will have a different set of 3D printed guides.
During surgery, dental implants made from an artificial titanium root are planted in the jaw bone using the guide to position them with exact precision. Due to its biocompatibility, your bone reacts well to the titanium surface of the implant. Once this titanium implant bonds with the bone, a crown can be placed to mimic a natural tooth.
The 3D printed guides make the whole implant procedure completely predictable and precise, eliminating any space for error. The introduction of this new technology means that there is no need for soft tissue incisions, as have been common in dental implant surgeries prior to this technology. This improvement overall significantly decreases the risk of damage to healthy gums.
Postoperative, any bruising, swelling or pain will be minimal, as this procedure significantly decreases the likelihood of postoperative complications. The healing process for a 3D guided surgery is much faster than traditionally, and you will feel relief in knowing that there is a massively reduced risk of any biomechanical complications or failure.
Precise and Predictable Dental Implants
The whole dental implant process has become highly efficient and reliable as technology has developed. You can feel completely comfortable knowing that this procedure that was once high risk and painful, is now a carefully calculated and predictable implant treatment. You will leave the dentist chair the very same day as your appointment with a brand new smile in fully recover in record time.
