Dental implants are a replacement solution for a missing teeth. The implant is placed within the jawbone and heals as the bone grows around it. After adequate healing, a tooth can be added to the implant. A single implant is typically used to replace a single tooth, however, multiple implants can be utilized to replace many missing teeth with the use of fixed hybrid restorations or removable dentures.
Dr. Bousaba uses 3-dimensional imaging and digital impressions to determine the precise location in which to place the implant. Within our planning software, Dr. Bousaba will identify the best position to place the implant in order to support the final tooth (or teeth). Once the location of the implant has been planned, a surgical guide is often fabricated to accurately place the implant in the planned position.
