Dental Implants are artificial roots that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by our Dallas implant dentist. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient's smile. These implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. They provide excellent support and stablility for these dental appliances. We look forward to your next visit with Dr. Brewster, your Dallas implant dentist.  

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

 

Galileos and Cerec Guided Implants

 

Modern Technology allows the CONE BEAM 3D technology and CEREC crown software to be used together and do a more complete visualiizing and planning for nerve trunks and sinus cavity shape and size for the  most ideal placement that was not available before.

This type of technology allows Dr. Brewster to place the implant in the most ideal site to allow for the crown, bridge or fixed retention denture to be placed with variables that were not able to be visualized in the 3D planning  before.

The CEREC CAD-CAM plans for the most ideal crown to be planned and then the implant to be placed with GALILEOS CONE BEAM SCAN computer guidance.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or Periodontist - a specialist of the gums and supporting bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years, but on occasion, they will have to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

Cone beam or 3D X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. The planning is done on a computer (Galileos ) and the implant is guided and is exacting in placement with the software seeing anatomical landmarks and the placement is done with computer designed guides are used for placement. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for up to six months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.

 

After several weeks of healing the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step may take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.

You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
