Advanced Technologies That Transform Dental Health
When you entrust Implant Dental Works with your smile, Dr. Kay will determine the best full arch protocol and technologies to use for the most optimal results. The ultimate goal is to deliver a naturally beautiful and durable smile that addresses your unique needs, complements your facial characteristics, and enhances your quality of life.
Introduced in the 1980s, the first version of the intraoral camera was cumbersome and required a lot of space. Advances in technology have led to the development of slim digital cameras that resemble writing pens. Today’s tiny intraoral cameras don’t cause any pain or discomfort, and they don’t have side effects. The intraoral camera enables Dr. Kay to visualize and take images of difficult-to-reach areas in your mouth. The camera is easy to move around and effectively captures enlarged detailed images of corroded or tarnished fillings, hairline fractures, inflamed gum tissue, plaque and several other critical tooth problems. All this is done in real-time, while you’re comfortably seated in our dental chair.
2.Smile Simulation Technology
Smile simulation technology is based on an analysis of your dental and facial proportions. The technology blends high-tech imaging and 3D modeling to provide a clear visualization of how your mouth will look after treatment. The process begins by taking 3D photos and videos of your entire mouth, both at rest and in motion. We feed this information into the design software to analyze the shape, size and color of each tooth, as well as gum line positioning and overall alignment. During your consultation, Dr. Kay will share this information with you as you discuss your desired outcome.
3.On-Site Milling Machine
CAD/CAM technology has helped transform the manner in which restorative treatment is delivered. Our on-site milling machine has the ability to provide you with temporary full arch implants for immediate placement. A milling machine creates a restoration from a solid block of high-grade dental material in a similar fashion that a sculpture is created from a block of marble. Chairside milling produces restorations that are at least as accurate as traditionally fabricated indirect restorations, if not more accurate. On-site milling enables Dr. Kay to optimize the process flow, reduce chairside time, increase efficiency, and ultimately save you time and money!
4.Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
A CBCT scanner rotates around your head to capture data in order to construct a 3D image of your teeth, oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw and neck), as well as your ears, nose and throat. CBCT is an essential dental technology that allows us to evaluate your underlying bone structure, nerve pathways and surrounding soft tissues. While the CBCT scan takes only about 20–40 seconds and is entirely painless, it produces more than 150–200 images, which combine to create a single 3D picture. Our CBCT scan: a) enables precise placement and alignment of dental implants into your bone structure, b) guides selection of the right size of implants for proper support, and c) prevents nerve injury or sinus impingement.
In general, digital printing is much faster than CAD/CAM milling. 3D printers have a definite advantage because unlike mills, they require no tools or burs. Milling is a removal process, whereas printing is an additive process. A 3D printer builds up layers, and can easily navigate complex curves, holes and tiny shapes. Furthermore, multiple parts can be printed at once, and printing produces little to no waste. Today, 3D printing is used to produce drill guides for dental implants, physical models and dental implants. In fact, most dental implants and crowns are created with 3D printing.
CHROME is a guided digital full arch reconstruction system developed for the preplanning of predictable guided All-On-X dental implant surgery. CHROME delivers anchored bite verification and site drilling, as well as an accurate method for creating temporary teeth and transferring all surgical and restorative information into the final prosthesis phase. In short, CHROME increases satisfaction while simplifying dental implant placement, thereby reducing the total time you’re in the dental chair.
The innovative nSequence technology enables immediate load and guided dental implant surgery, providing an array of benefits. These include fewer appointments than traditional dental implant methods, a shorter surgery time, and the ability to go home with a same-day customized smile. When you visit us for your first dental implant consultation, we’ll determine if this protocol fits your unique smile needs.
