Am I a Good Candidate?
There are a lot of considerations for candidacy for dental implants, so a consultation is the best place to start. Dr. Samadian uses the Cone Beam CT scan to evaluate your nerves, sinuses, bone density, and bone width and height to determine if you require bone building through sinus elevation or bone augmentations before dental implants can be considered.
What’s the Procedure Like?
To ensure the placement of your dental implant is as precise as possible, Dr. Samadian uses XGuide navigational implant placement. This cutting-edge technology involves a special camera to give Dr. Samadian a 3D view of your soft tissue, jawbone, and surrounding teeth. It provides real time guidance to strategically set your dental implant at the proper depth, angle, and position, most often without the need for incisions or stitches. The XGuide navigational implant placement is the most advanced technology in the world to minimize post-surgery discomfort and improve your implant’s positioning.
What Recovery Can I Expect?
Dr. Samadian takes your comfort into consideration, using the most advanced techniques, such as flapless surgery, guided surgery, and XGuide navigational placement alongside different types of sedation, so your implants look and fit better. With detailed aftercare instructions, your chances of complication are significantly minimized, as is your discomfort. You shouldn’t experience any pain during the procedure, and you’ll receive pain management medications and advice as needed. You should drink plenty of water and avoid hot or cold foods or drinks. Ice packs to reduce swelling and pain, as well as biting gauze padding may also help.
The end result is a restored tooth that functions fully, is cared for as normal, and cannot be distinguished from your other teeth.
