Top Quality Dental Implants Cypress TX
Along with so many other advances in dental technology, dental implants have also improved considerably since first coming on the dental scene. The implants of today are more aesthetically pleasing as well as more functional and durable. Implants are a restorative dental treatment used to replace one or more teeth individually. Unlike partials or dental bridges, the implant is an individual restoration that only impacts the site of the missing tooth.
A small surgical procedure is required to place a titanium post, much like a screw in the socket where the tooth root was. This post is left to bond with the surrounding bone mass. When sufficient bone has bonded with the post the area is then prepared to receive a dental crown which will be placed on the post. The crown looks and feels like a natural tooth. When the site is sufficiently healed and ready, the crown is attached to the post and the result is a tooth that looks as natural as any of the teeth in your mouth.
3D Cone Beam Technology (x-rays)
The high rate of success in dental implant planning and placement is supported in part by the use of digital cone beam technology. Rapidly rotating around the patient, the cone shaped beam take images with very little radiation exposure to the patient. Images are converted into three-dimensional views, allowing dentists to view the unique bone structure and jaw anatomy of the patient, as well as root positions. Without question, 3D cone beam technology allows for greater precision and predictability in dental implant placement.
