A Pain-Free Alternative To Traditional Dental Implant Surgery
Historically dental implants were placed by a surgeon which involved the fitting and sewing of the surgical wound. While the outcome of this surgery is beneficial, restoring your smile and improving oral health, it also came with pain and swelling during the recovery period, sometimes up to 2 weeks.
At Fort Bend Periodontics and Implantology Dr. Bret Dyer has invested in state-of-the-art technology and stayed at the leading edge of new techniques. Dr. Dyer is a leader in the field of laser dentistry and has placed hundreds of implants since 1989, including using 3D guided surgery. This innovative surgery is incredibly precise, allowing for a quick installation of implants with little to no pain or swelling.
3D Guided Implant Surgery
Using 3D guided surgery Dr Dyer is able to place your implants without cutting, swelling and pain. Plus, patients are able to return to their daily routines as quickly as the next day. This surgery can even be used in situations of total loss of teeth.
The procedure starts with a visit to Fort Bend Periodontics And Implantology. During this initial meeting Dr. Dyer will take 3D xrays of your mouth. Compared to traditional dental X-rays that use uncomfortable film and take a while to process, digital X-rays are more comfortable to take and produce images almost immediately. These images are used to make a model using a computer CAD program. This allows Dr. Dyer to create a custom plan to place your implants perfectly, customized to your mouth, and giving you a comfortable and natural feeling bite.
With this prep work completed a second appointment is scheduled for your surgery. A typical procedure can take as little as 10 to 15 minutes, with less than a day to recover.
Who Is It Good For?
Anyone that has a missing tooth or needs to have one pulled should consider 3D-guided surgery as a solution for a permanent restoration. A healthy mouth and gums are required, and any pre-existing conditions, like gingivitis, will need to be remedied. Dr. Dyer will examine your mouth and your overall health to determine if you are a good candidate before moving forward.
