Nowadays, images produced by scanners are processed by software specific to implant treatments. In fact, they help to visualize the bone volumes available as well as any anatomical obstacles. As such, we can then accurately plan our procedures and ensure maximum comfort throughout the duration of the surgery.
So what are dental implants?
The purpose of dental implants is to replace one or several teeth permanently. To do so, your dental professional will design an artificial root, which will serve as a support for the replacement tooth. This root will be made of titanium, a biocompatible material known for its light weight and durability. Once the implant is inserted into the alveolar bone and the healing process is complete, we can then set the replacement tooth.
Here are the advantages of a treatment involving an implant:
- A highly aesthetic permanent solution
- Helps to slow the bone-loss process
- Considerably improves chewing function
- Prevents early wear and displacement of adjacent teeth
- Offers better stability to partial or full prostheses.
Considering the simplicity of the procedure and the numerous benefits involved in dental implants, this practice has become very common at the Alain Cyr Clinic. For more information, feel free to ask our staff. We’re always please to provide answers to all your questions!
