2022 Advances in Dental Implant Tech

February 27, 2022
Latest Dental Implant Technology

At San Marcos Dental Center, we’re at the forefront of dental implant technology, offering advanced same-day dental implants. This breakthrough approach eliminates the need for follow-up procedures to expose the implants, although a healing period of six weeks is still necessary before attaching prosthetic teeth. In some instances, we can perform dental implants alongside tooth extractions, minimizing the need for multiple surgeries. The technique of immediate loading streamlines the process, allowing for the extraction and implant placement in one visit, thus speeding up recovery. Our dedication to the latest advancements ensures accurate bone evaluation and implant positioning, leading to safer, more aesthetically pleasing outcomes. Our ongoing commitment to state-of-the-art technology and continuous training guarantees the highest level of patient care, as reflected in our exceptional success rates and positive feedback.

Exploring Types of Dental Implants and Crowns

Whether you’re missing a single tooth or multiple teeth, we offer a variety of dental implant solutions. Single prostheses or crowns are perfect for individual teeth, attaching to their own implants. For several missing teeth, a partial prosthesis or fixed bridge might require just two or three implants. Full dental prostheses or fixed bridges, ideal for replacing all teeth in the upper or lower jaw, vary in the number of implants needed based on whether the prosthesis is removable or fixed. Removable prostheses (overdentures) attach to bars or ball-in-socket mechanisms, while fixed prostheses are permanent solutions. Patients often report significant improvements in life quality and self-esteem after choosing dental implants over other options.

Dental Implants Versus Dentures: A Comparison

Dental implants are the gold standard in modern tooth replacement, surpassing dentures in terms of fit, stability, and convenience. Unlike dentures, which can be prone to slipping and require nightly removal, dental implants offer a seamless experience, closely mimicking natural teeth. This level of integration provides unparalleled peace of mind and comfort.

Evaluating Your Suitability for Dental Implants

To determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants, a thorough assessment of your oral health and medical history is essential. If immediate implant placement isn’t possible, we may recommend preparatory procedures like bone grafting to improve your candidacy. Our goal is to ensure the best possible outcome for your dental implant procedure.
