Is there a family dentist near me placing implants?
What do you do if you find yourself in the situation where you’re missing a tooth? Do not worry. Dr. Corpron has a plan for that. Implants are one of the best options when replacing a missing tooth. Implants are titanium or zirconia fixtures that are carefully placed within the bone to act as a root for a crown. When well planned, implant placement is a relatively quick and painless procedure with very little swelling or discomfort afterwards.
To get that kind of a result a very careful, 3-dimensional protocol needs to be followed. This involves taking 3D x-rays such as the low-dose CBCT x-rays provided at Blue Sky Family Dentistry. Using the state-of-the-art Sirona SL-ai, Dr. Corpron is able to view the bone in all directions and to plan the exact location and angulation of your dental implant. 3D digital impression are also taken. This adds an extra layer of precision. The two digital models are then put together to create special surgical guides so that the implant can only be placed one way: the right way. The image above is an example of a 3D implant surgical guide. They’re carefully designed to fit comfortably over the teeth. But what if you have no teeth? No problem. Surgical guides can be made for those without teeth or for those missing multiple teeth as well.
At Blue Sky Family Dentistry we believe in taking the time to do things carefully and predictably. If you are missing teeth and want replacement teeth, implants are often the best solution. If you are worried about implant cost, our staff will always check to see if your insurance benefits will help, and if you have no dental insurance there are financing options that can fit your lifestyle.
