DENTAL IMPLANTS and DIGITAL 3D DENTURES

Dental Implants

A dental implant is one of the most permanent forms of restorative dentistry that is done to replace either a single tooth or multiple missing teeth.  An implant is a titanium post (similar to the root of your tooth) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone and will allow us to mount a customized crown or crowns to replace the missing tooth or teeth.  When replacing a missing tooth, a dental implant may be chosen over a dental bridge to preserve the condition of adjacent teeth.  Dental Implants are the closest option we have to mimic a natural tooth.

 

Digital 3D Dentures 

Missing or damaged teeth can affect your ability to bite and chew effectively, speak properly, and they can also be embarrassing when you interact with other people in the course of your daily life. Dentures can be made to replace multiple teeth or all teeth, to improve esthetics, function and stability.  We are now able to acquire extremely precise models of your mouth utilizing the latest in 3D scanning techniques and craft your new dentures with 3D printing technology.

3D printed dentures are different from conventional dentures in several ways:

1. Precision: 3D printing technology allows for greater precision and accuracy in creating dentures. This is because 3D printers use digital scans of a patient's mouth to create a custom-fit denture that matches the exact specifications of their mouth.

2. Speed: 3D printing technology can produce dentures in a matter of hours, compared to the weeks it can take to create conventional dentures. This means that patients can get their dentures more quickly and with fewer appointments.

3. Comfort: 3D printed dentures are designed to fit more comfortably in a patient's mouth, reducing the risk of irritation, soreness, or discomfort.

Digital Denture Back-Up

What are Digital Denture Backups?

Digital denture backups are a cutting-edge service that ensures your complete dentures are always secure and easily replaceable. Using advanced digital technology, we create a precise 3D digital copy of your dentures, which is stored securely in our system. This digital backup allows us to reproduce your dentures quickly and accurately, should they ever be lost, damaged, or need replacing. The process involves scanning your current dentures to create an exact digital model, which can then be 3D printed or milled to produce an identical set. This not only saves time and provides convenience but also ensures that your replacement dentures will fit perfectly, just like the originals. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your smile is always protected with our digital denture backup service
