How We Use Technology To Secure Your Dental Implants

We want to address your missing teeth and help you enjoy a full smile with dental implants. To plan and guide this process, we will employ advanced imaging technology, and even unique air units to keep you safe. In today’s blog, your Livonia, MI, dentist talks about how we use advanced technology to help replace missing teeth with dental implants.

Digital X-Rays

Dental implants are inserted into the jaw, and these biocompatible titanium posts act as new roots. Which means we need to make sure there is enough jawbone to support them, and we need to assess the identity factors behind your tooth loss. With digital x-rays, we have a system that uses 90% less radiation, and doesn’t require a lengthy period for development, as images are available instantly chairside. We can pinpoint and then plan treatment for underlying issues that like gum disease, which impact your implant stability. We also choose the best angles, positions, and depths to insert the posts and ensure the success of your new teeth.

The TRIOS Intraoral Scanner

To ensure your dental implants and the restorations or prosthetics that complete them fit well and look good, we need to take impressions. In the past, this meant tigon down on a mold filled with a sticky material. You often had to repeat the process to get a viable mold! But we offer the digital alternative, using the Trios Intraoral Scanner to obtain clear and detailed digital images of your smile from multiple angles quickly and comfortably, combining them to create a detailed 3D computer impression, one far more accurate than physical molds. This imaging system enables us to custom-make your crowns and prosthetics, so your new teeth look and function like natural ones.

Surgically Clean Air Units

We also want to keep you safe when you visit our team, which is why we’ve added new technologies to keep the air clean and pure. With our Surgical Clear Air Units, we can scrub the air of viruses, bacteria, pathogens, and more to help those vulnerable to illness or allergies enjoy a safe and comfortable visit. These are placed in each room of our practice too!

If you have any questions about the technology we use to keep you safe and ensure treatment with precision, then contact our team today. We want to offer dental implants to provide a full smile again, so you can smile with confidence. Whether you have a single missing tooth or several, we’re ready to help with securing lifelike dental implants!
