DIGITAL IMPLANT | The Future of Dental Implant

Dental Practice with Digital Dental Implant system

Guided surgery is the newest digital navigation implant surgery through 3D computer simulation surgery as it determines the optimal surgery plan with minimal incision of surgery and less pain. Glenhaven Dental Implant is proud to offer digital dental implants, an implant system that gives patients the option of a minimally invasive procedure, which sees a single implant placed in two hours. Let’s take a closer look at some of the benefits of digital dental implants.
This is the up-to-date digital  implant surgery.  Unlike conventional implants, the DIGITAL system implements a fully-digital flap-less technique which involves minimal surgery time, less discomfort, and no sutures.  


How does it work?  | State of the Art Technologies


Using patented digital technology, Digital implants allow us to find the safest and most effective placement for each dental implant.  Thanks to this, your consultation time is reduced because we are able to find a pathway for placement that decreases your chance of nerve damage.

In order to understand why they are effective, you first need to understand how guided implants differ from conventional dental implants.

With conventional dental implants, we must first make an incision in your gum in order to expose the bone underneath. Then he or she will drill into the bone, screw the implant on top of it and then stitch the incision up again.

You would then wait for the appropriate amount of healing time for osseointegration to take place before your dentist opens the incision again in order to attach your abutment. You would need another period of healing to take place if you follow this process.

Each time the site is opened up again, your chances of infection increase.

By contrast, the Digital implant system makes use of dental technology to find the correct placement for your implant. Minimally invasive incision surgery is used to create keyholes in the correct position, in which implants are placed. This avoids the need for reopening the incision and is considered ‘flap-less’ surgery.


 

If you’re wondering whether you are a candidate for DIGITAL dental implants, answer the following questions:


  1. Are you missing one or more teeth?
  2. Would you like an alternative tooth replacement to bridges or dentures?
  3. Have you experienced or heard about the complications that have arisen from conventional implant surgery?
  4. Were you ineligible for conventional dental implants?



If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions guided dental implants will probably work for you, but it’s always best to speak to a professional. Please call our practice today and smile again.(02) 96595924




Benefits Of Digital Dental Implants

Greater accuracy

  • Thanks to guided implants’ digital placement, We can look forward to much greater accuracy during the surgery, minimising your chance of nerve damage during the procedure.

 

Reduce bleeding and inflammation

  • Because no incision is made, digital implants reduce your chances of infection, inflammation and bleeding. With conventional dental implants, bleeding and inflammation can lead to infection and secondary complications. With the guided system this can be avoided.

 

Heal quicker

  • Digital implants are minimally invasive, so your recovery period is significantly shorter.

 

Reduce pain and improve recovery

  • Being minimally invasive and not requiring incisions, Digital guide implants mean less pain for our patient when compared to traditional implants.


Guided implant is suitable for patients with chronic conditions

  • Guided digital implants are also suitable for patients who have tissue disease. High blood pressure or diabetes. Ordinarily, patients with these chronic conditions may not be able to have dental implants and may look into other tooth replacement methods.

 

A faster implant procedure

  • Guided implant surgery is quick and efficient, with each implant taking an average of 20 minutes to complete. This is significantly shorter than a conventional surgical procedure where an incorrect manual placement could delay the process.
