About Implant Dentistry Frequently Asked Questions

Although the end result of the dental implants process is the same, how that implant is delivered differs. Digital implant restorations use a computer-guided technique which allows the process to be streamlined. This results in faster treatment with fewer visits and a speedier recovery.

Quite simply because flapless surgery techniques mean that the process is carried out without incisions and without stitches. Ultimately the procedure itself is shorter so patients spend less time in the chair making it easier for people, particularly those who feel nervous or anxious.

Generally speaking, fitting dental implants using digital techniques usually takes just 3 visits, although this isn’t taking into account routine follow-ups or any pre-treatments such as bone grafting. Conversely, on average when a patient undergoes traditional dental implants, they’ll need to visit the dentist around 6-7 times.

We generally tell people that anyone who is a good candidate for conventional implants can undergo digital tooth implants. Indeed, in some cases because of the accuracy of digital implant placement and the fact that bone grafting might not always be required, not only might you now be a more suitable candidate but you could also benefit from lower Bundaberg dental implants prices.

Firstly, several types of imaging technologies are used. These include Panoramic CT scanning using our Rayscan equipment and oral scanning taking digital pictures of the inside of your teeth. These combine to make a 3D model of your teeth and jaws. Our DIO Navi system is used to guide and place the implant and our CAD/CAM equipment is used to design and fabricate your permanent crown/s.

This is the key part of the process. Utilising the 3D mock-up of your teeth and jaw our highly skilled dentists plan the surgery. This allows them to get the trajectory, direction and depth of the dental implants right before they go ‘patient live.’ Once our team are happy, the surgical guides that streamline the whole procedure are made. As a result, surgery can be considerably quicker.

Studies show that most implants remain in place for several decades and more, but some have been known to last longer with no signs of wear or tear. As with conventional implants, however, it depends on how well they’re looked after in the coming years.
