How Computer technology Has Helped Dental Implant Success
If you’re looking for dental implants in Richmond or anywhere else in the country the chances are that part of your treatment is likely to involve computer assisted planning. This is a major part of any treatment plan.
In order to achieve optimal results it’s imperative that any patient undergoing treatment for dental implants has sufficient bone and healthy gum tissue as this can be the make or break of dental implant success. Using computerised CT scans and 3 dimensional technologies it’s now possible for dentist to obtain a complete overview of a patient’s jaw in great detail. This helps in many ways.
Accurately show bone thickness
A computerised scan or CT cross section of the jaw will accurately show the thickness of the bone. This is vital to the success of the implantation process because for the procedure to be successful the bone depth needs to be sufficient enough to anchor the implant into.
State of the bone
In addition to there being sufficient bone, the bone tissue also needs to be healthy. A healthy bone aids the osseointegration process. This is the procedure of bone fusion, whereby over time the tissue fuses with the titanium implant to create a super-strong platform upon which to place the prosthetic crown. As osseointegration is vital to the success of the implants, it’s necessary for it to occur using healthy bone. A computerised scan of the area will be able to show this in detail.
Proximity to nerves and sinuses
A computerised picture of the inside of a patient’s mouth allows a dentist to accurately pin-point the placement of an implant with greater ease as they can see at a glance exactly where the nerves and sinuses are so that they can then be avoided.
