The Digital Difference
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that fully performs all the functions of your natural teeth. They:
- Are completely natural in appearance
- Look very attractive
- Allow you to eat all the foods you enjoy now
- Require no special care—just brush, floss, and make regular dental visits
- Don’t depend on your natural teeth for support
- Can last a lifetime with proper care—30+ years of proven life, although the crown may need to be replaced
They are the only tooth replacement option that offers all the above benefits.
Traditional dental implants definitely have many benefits, but with digital dental implants you can get the same benefits with a more streamlined procedure that gives you a better experience. The benefits of the new digital dental implant procedure include:
- Shorter implant procedure (as little as 15 minutes)
- Get your replacement tooth faster
- More comfortable process
- Fewer visits to the dentist
- Excellent occlusion
- Greater accuracy and stability
With our new digital planning process, we can use mock surgery to optimize your procedure before you come in for surgery. This allows us to complete the procedure in as little as 15 minutes, compared to 130 minutes or more for traditional planning techniques.
And with digital dental implants, you’re more likely to get your replacement tooth right away. On average, people with digital dental implants get their temporaries after 5-7 days, compared to 123 days for traditional implant procedures. And many people will leave surgery with their smile completely restored.
The procedure is also more comfortable. You don’t have to get physical impressions made–no biting down into a tray of goo–and the surgery is optimized to be as smooth as possible. There are no incisions and no need for stitches.
Because we can do so much of the procedure based on our digital models without you in the office, you can get your dental implants placed in as few as three visits, compared to seven visits or more for some traditional processes.
The simulation process for this system works for the crowns as well as the implant. It allows us to plan for optimal occlusion as we’re planning the implant placement. Optimizing the crown at the time we’re working on the implant root ensures that all components work together for excellent occlusion and stability.
With the digital scanning, planning, and manufacturing of a surgical guide, we are able to achieve an amazing accuracy with our dental implants. This fourth generation digital implant system allows us to place them with a deviation of just 0.9 °–other systems produce three times the deviation or more!
