Advancing Implant Dentistry
Dental implants boast over a 90% success rate. The most natural way to replace missing teeth, dental implants have become the standard in restorative dentistry. Patients enjoy long term oral health benefits and stability of the jaw bone and facial integrity.
Advancements in dental technology are taking implant dentistry to the next level, raising the success rate and improving comfort and stability. Modern technology allows Dr. Buckle to more precisely place implants and reduce healing times. For some patients with compromised bone structure, implant technology helps Dr. Buckle optimize healthy bone tissue, eliminating the need for bone grafting. Digital advancements in implant dentistry allow for more accurate pre-treatment planning that can for a predictable and precise outcome.
Computer Guided Implantology
Computer guided technology is the future of implantology. We are pleased to offer this innovative treatment in our Wirral dental practice.
3D CT-guided dental implant surgery gives our dentists an exceptional amount of information before any treatment is completed in the patient’s mouth. This technology uses 3D radiographs of the jaws which allows the dentist to see the bone volume and anatomy of each site for more precise planning. Bone deficiency can be identified before treatment begins allowing the surgeon to plan grafts or angled implants for the best possible outcome.
All of the treatment planning is done “virtually” on the computer screen. This also enables the dentist to communicate the treatment plan with the patient prior to starting the procedure.
Osstell ISQ For Dental Implant Stability
Traditionally, a dental implant is restored based on a predetermined treatment schedule. With Osstell ISQ, the dentist can restore the implant at a time specific to your healing. This means improved dental implant success and for many patients, faster treatment time.
What is Osstell ISQ?
Osstell ISQ is a diagnostic tool that measures the stability of the dental implant. The dentist will use a wireless apparatus to digitally assess stability. The tool assess stability in every direction and pinpoints the least stable area so that it can be secured.
The non-invasive assessment takes less than 5 seconds and delivers an instant reading. A higher stability rating indicates the implant can be restored more quickly.
