Implant Surgery and Its Advancements
What is Implant Surgery?
Dental implant surgery is a procedure that replaces one or more missing teeth with artificial teeth. The implants are usually made of titanium and are placed in the jawbone to fuse with the bone over time. This gives them a very strong foundation to support the new teeth. Implant surgery is usually done under local anesthesia, though sedation may be used if multiple implants are being placed. The surgery itself is usually quite straightforward and only takes a few hours. Recovery times vary depending on the individual, but most people can expect to return to their normal activities within a few days. Implant surgery can provide a very effective solution for those who have lost one or more teeth. It can also improve the function and appearance of your smile.
What is guided implant surgery?
Guided dental implant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that uses computer-assisted technology to place implants with great accuracy. This technique allows the dentist to leverage the latest imaging technology in order to obtain a highly accurate placement of the implant in the jawbone. As a result, guided dental implant surgery can provide patients with a number of benefits, including less pain and swelling, fewer complications, and a quicker recovery time. In addition, this type of surgery can often be completed in just one visit, making it a convenient option for patients who want to avoid the hassle of multiple trips to the dentist.
