Over the past few years, dental technology has become increasingly sophisticated, especially where dental implants in Ajax are concerned. Dental implants are an advanced treatment to restore missing teeth and can provide wonderful treatment outcomes. However, extensive skill and experience are needed to plan and place dental implants accurately using the most up-to-date techniques available.
Durham Dental Solutions has invested extensively in the very best and latest dental technologies in Whitby to ensure our patients receive excellent results more comfortably. One of our most important pieces of equipment is our cone-beam CT scanner.
Cone Beam CT Scanner
When you initially come to visit us to inquire about dental implants in Pickering, we will need to assess the quality and quantity of your jawbone closely. The best way to do this is with a cone beam CT scan that provides 3-D images of your jaws and other important structures like nerves and blood vessels and the position of existing teeth.
The information it provides is invaluable for planning implant surgery accurately and determining if you need other treatments such as bone grafting to build up any missing bone. The images are used to decide where best to place each dental implant in Oshawa, ensuring we make maximum use of available bone and that the implant will function optimally and look and feel good.
Once we have planned your implant surgery in Brooklin, we create a surgical stent using these images. The surgical stent is used during implant placement to replicate the treatment plan accurately.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors
Good healing is an essential part of successful implant treatment in Newcastle. Once the implant is placed, the tissues around it must heal quickly, allowing the implant to become firmly fused in position. Using plasma rich growth factors in Courtice extracted from your blood and plasma helps aid faster and better healing. When placed over the surgery site, they help provide optimal results.
Digital Dental Impressions
Does the very idea of having a conventional tray impression make you feel tense and apprehensive? There is no need to worry as technology has moved on somewhat. There is no need to sit there for several minutes with a goopy impression in your mouth, which will come as a huge relief to anyone with a strong gag reflex. Instead of tray impressions, we use a digital dental impression system, where your mouth is scanned using a tiny digital camera, creating a highly detailed 3-D dental impression. Because a digital dental impression in Oshawa is much more accurate, it ensures we can provide precision fitted restorations.
Digital Smile Design
Dental implant teeth can look and feel wonderful, but understandably many people want to know what their new teeth will look like to help set their mind at rest. Digital smile design in Clarington is a technology that allows us to use x-rays and photos to create digital images showing how your teeth will look after your implants are restored. It’s a great way to ensure you feel confident in your treatment, and of course, you can become involved in the process of designing your new teeth, ensuring you feel happy with the outcome even before your treatment begins.
In-Office Crown Milling
Usually, dental crowns need to be made in a dental lab, a process that can take several weeks to complete and which requires more than one appointment. With our in-office crown milling machine, we can design and fabricate your crown in one comfortable appointment. These precision-made restorations are made from a strong, beautiful ceramic material and are entirely metal-free.
