New Advances in Dental Implants
Bucktown Dental Associates follows the latest advances in dental implants.
Chicago (I-Newswire) September 16, 2013 - Dental Implants have seen many advances in the past few years. Advances include 3D imaging, CAD/CAM technology, and Zirconia restorations. Those advances have achieved great improvements in both implant crowns and implant dentures. Dr. Elseweifi of Bucktown Dental Associates in Chicago follows those advances and makes sure his team is trained on their use.
3D imaging allows three dimensional diagnosis and treatment planning for dental implants. Dental 3D imaging is obtained by cone-beam scanners. This amazing technology allows three-dimensional assessment of dental implant site anatomy. Software is used to enhance visualization and diagnostics and to develop a virtual treatment plan. As 3D imaging allows precise measurement of the site for implants in all directions, Implant size and prosthetic components can be chosen and a surgical guide can be fabricated. This is useful for both crown implants and denture implants.
Patient-specific components for dental implants offer many advantages to prefabricated components. Custom Healing Abutment and Custom Temporary Abutment can train soft tissue during healing phase. Custom final abutments for dental implants give better esthetic results and long-term success of the implant restoration. They provide optimal emergence profile and support of restoration
Computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) digital technology can be used to fabricate many of the custom implant components. Abutments and restorations are digitally designed and then milled from either titanium or Zirconia. The precision of fit of components for dental implants produced by CAD/CAM cannot be achieved by any other technique. CAD/CAM can also be used to titanium bars for implant dentures.
Components for dental implants can now be milled from Zirconia using CAD/CAM technology. Zirconia was introduced to dentistry as an alternative to metal restorations. Current Zirconia restorations combine improved esthetics and strength. It is used for custom abutments and implant crowns for both anterior and posterior teeth.
