Dental implants are fabricated from titanium, and are placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. We use a top quality digital three-dimensional radiographic scan to determine the optimum placement of the implant. This imaging is also known as a cone beam CT or cone beam 3D imaging. Once the placement of the implant has been determined, we also use the scan for 3D guided surgery.
In most cases, after the dental implant is placed, it needs several months to integrate into the surrounding bone. Once it is fully integrated, it is the longest lasting and most effective replacement of missing teeth available today.
