Patients who have missing teeth and have learned about dental implants may be excited about restoring their smile in this manner. Dental implants are a popular choice for many patients considering a fixed, long-term restoration to replace one or more teeth. Dental implants require a surgical and restorative stage to complete, and Dr. Sima F. Chegini of Fairlawn, Ohio’s Arsmiles Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can assist with both!

Implant surgical stage

Dental implants are a commonly used solution for missing teeth because of the many benefits they provide. These titanium posts function as natural tooth roots once placed and osseointegrated; when fully restored, they feel like natural teeth and allow patients to enjoy their favorite foods with ease. However, the implant needs to be placed into the jawbone before being restored with a bridge, crown, or denture. That requires oral surgery and precision placement. The 3-D scan obtained by the CBCT technology is an essential diagnostic tool for multiple procedures such as surgical placement of an implant in implant dentistry. It assesses the thickness and height of the jaw bone and determines if any vital structures such as a nerve or blood vessel are in the way of safe and successful placement of the titanium implant. If the bone thickness is borderline or a vital structure like a nerve or a blood vessel is in the way of placing an implant, often a “surgical guide” needs to be fabricated by a dental laboratory using the 3-D scan obtained from CBCT technology. This guide will facilitate precise and accurate placement of an implant safely and successfully in questionable areas of the mouth where the jaw bone is scarce and thin, and a tooth is missing.

Dr. Chegini is experienced in the surgical placement of dental implants and educates patients on the process so they fully understand each step needed to achieve the desired final results. Once the area is healed, patients will move to the restorative stage, where a restoration is attached to the abutment above the gumline.
