If you have a tooth that has been damaged or removed you may be a good candidate for implant guided surgery in Brooklyn, NY or NYC. Dental implants have been around for quite a long time, and they have been proven to be an extremely safe, effective and long lasting solution to many oral problems. Normal dental implants, however, can take quite a long time to complete and require the doctor to precisely place the implant and the artificial tooth. If anything doesn’t go as planned, the surgery may not be a success. Thanks to modern technologies, however, we can now use guided implant surgery to complete the job much more accurately. Dr. Umanoff has been using the guided implant surgery techniques for some time now, allowing the overall success rate to dramatically go up. This procedure also helps to minimize the time the procedure takes, which minimizes any discomfort for the patient. If you’re looking for the best dental implant options in NYC or Brooklyn, get in touch with us for a consultation.
How does Implant Guided Surgery Work
Implant guided surgery in NYC and Brooklyn works by having a 3D image or scan taken of the area in question. The doctor can then simulate the surgery ahead of time both digitally and with a model. This allows better planning of the positioning of the implant, how deep it needs to go, and a variety of other factors. With this 3D technology it also makes it easier to create the artificial tooth so that it fits perfectly in the opening and provides you a much more natural looking result. Once everything is prepared, the dentist will use a guided instrument that helps ensure the implant is put in at the proper angle and depth. Since it is set based on the results of the 3D imaging and planning, the entire surgery is performed much more precisely so that everything goes exactly the way it is supposed to. Of course, the doctor will be working with the machinery to ensure there are no problems.
Additional Benefits of 3D Images
The 3D imaging and scanning that Dr. Umanoff has performed also allows the precise creation of prosthetics including crowns right on site. This means even if dental implants aren’t possible in your specific case, you can still benefit from the advanced technologies used in this office. Having a full image of the area in question will allow you to get the perfect crowns or other prosthetics made to reduce the risk of any problems related to the procedure.
