If you are a patient of ours, or a regular reader of our blog, then you are likely aware of the benefits that dental implants provide when you need to replace one or more lost teeth. An implant is surgically inserted into your jawbone to help prevent the damage that often follows the loss of a natural tooth root (such as jawbone deterioration). As part of our dedication to bringing state-of-the-art dental treatment to all of our patients, Miami dentist Dr. Arun Garg makes a good thing better by utilizing a CT (computerized tomography) scanner to significantly improve the precision of dental implant planning and placement.
Precision is Key
Your mouth’s proper function relies on balance. For optimal performance, your jaws and teeth must align perfectly. If anything is out of place, then the discrepancy can disrupt this delicate balance, and problems can develop as your mouth’s components work extra hard to take up the slack. For instance, a lost tooth can interrupt the natural pressure distribution of your bite. When replacing the tooth, angle and position are of utmost importance to accurately restore the balance.
As a prosthetic tooth root, a dental implant offers the sturdiest foundation for a tooth replacement. However, the replacement’s foundation may not benefit you if it is not placed correctly. Using the CT scanner, Dr. Garg can take a detailed scan of your mouth to plan the precise angle, position, and insertion point for your dental implant, minimizing discomfort and treatment time. The scanner can also be used to more accurately diagnose other dental issues and plan the appropriate treatment.
