Dental implants in Virginia Beach are the most reliable solution to replace missing teeth. With over a 95% success rate, they have the potential to last for a lifetime. However, their long-term viability not only relies on maintaining your oral health after your posts have been placed but also having the right foundation for your new smile. To ensure it has a successful start, Dr. Patel uses the latest technologies to determine your candidacy for the procedure while also using emerging innovations throughout every step of your journey. You can rest assured, you’re in good hands when choosing our modern office for your dental implants.
A i3D Smart Scanner provides highly detailed images of your oral structures that show more than what’s possible using a traditional X-ray. It features your oral structures in their entirety, including your sinuses, nerve pathways, and soft tissues. This gives Dr. Patel a clear picture of your oral health to look for any areas of concern that may hinder the long-term success of your new smile, such as an untreated infection or low bone density.
Using the information from the scan, Dr. Patel can see if you need additional procedures before placing your implant posts, such as bone grafting or periodontal therapy. He can also use the scan to pinpoint the ideal locations for your posts to ensure your jawbone can support them.
Intraoral cameras give your dentist in Virginia Beach a snapshot of your mouth. The tiny devices allow Dr. Patel to see large images inside your mouth in real-time. This makes it easy to perform your dental implant procedure with precision using the high-resolution images.
A soft tissue laser provides a safer and more effective alternative to a traditional scalpel during your implant placement. The highly concentrated laser beam accurately targets a treatment area to leave the surrounding areas undamaged. It also sterilizes and cauterizes while it cuts to reduce the risk of infection and bleeding.
Now, you don’t need to hold a messy, foul-tasting material in your mouth to get the specifications necessary to create your restorations. Instead, a quick, painless scan is taken of your mouth to get the information Dr. Patel needs to craft your new teeth. Not only does this enhance your comfort, but it also reduces any room for error to ensure your new smile looks and functions just like your real teeth.
You will need oral surgery when replacing your teeth with dental implants, but there is no need to worry. Dr. Patel is trained to safely administer sedation to ensure your comfort. You are closely monitored for your safety as he places your implant posts.
By embracing the latest technologies, Dr. Patel can perform both the placement and restoration phases of your treatment in-office. This saves time and money while giving you peace of mind knowing one trusted dentist is rebuilding your smile.
