Dental Implants Explained

In order to understand the numerous rewards reaped by the implantation procedure offered by professional periodontists, it is essential to have a comprehensive understanding of dental implants.

In simple terms, implants are a type of tooth root that is artificially-designed. These structures are placed within the jawbone and provide a solid and permanent base for teeth fixtures and replacement teeth.

In most instances, the dental implant is composed of pure titanium and titanium-based alloy. The purpose and intent of each implantation procedure is to ensure close contact with the bones that surround the space being treated.

The implant structure commonly includes a specially-designed internal screw that is threaded or a special space with a post that allows for various tooth-like structures to be appropriately fitted.

This aspect of the implant provides a solid foundation that permits for the support of various dental pieces including crowns, dentures, as well as bridges.

Why Titanium?

Previous Wichita dental implants have been created utilizing a variety of materials. These include ceramics, zirconium-oxide, and artificial sapphire; however, titanium has been the preferred choice for several decades.

Implant pieces composed of this type of metal are often referred to as “osseointegration implants”.

Titanium is a metal that is known to have an exceptionally high level of biocompatibility. Additionally, it has been found to bond quickly to the bone.

Titanium, therefore, provides a direct structural-based and functional-based level of connection between the body of the dental implant, as well as the living bone that surrounds that body.

Titanium is a substance that will not be viewed as a foreign object by the cells of the body or result in detrimental effects to the health of the patient.

Ideal Candidates for Dental Implantation Surgery

Most individuals that are considered to be in good health – generally speaking – are considered to be ideal candidates for dental implant surgery. In most instances, this procedure is reserved for adults as the jaw must have reached optimal growth and maturity prior to implantation.

A periodontist will normally hold a consultation with a candidate to assess the overall success rate that may be accomplished in concluding the implantation.

Additionally, we will determine the reasons in which a patient desires to have the procedure performed.

In most cases, the reasoning is as follows:

  • ​Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making it more secure and comfortable.

The Dental Implant Process

Immediately following your original consultation, you will be informed as to whether or not you are an ideal candidate for a dental implant procedure.

An evaluation will be performed by Dr. Sams to determine your unique needs. This will aid in determining where the dental implant should be placed, the type of dental implant that is best suited for your oral health, and the process associated with the procedure will be thoroughly explained.

XNAV Technology Explained

What is XNAV Technology?

X-NAV Technologies utilize X-Guide navigation for implant placement. X-guide is a revolutionary system that extends the capabilities of the 3D scan (cone beam) for simplified and more accurate implant procedures. This system allows an interactive guidance for implant placement by providing a live, 360-degree view of the drill position and patient anatomy during the procedure. Utilizing a 3D scan and X-Guide navigation, ideal implant placement can be used giving patients the most functional and aesthetically planned implant.

How is the X-Guide used?

Patients are seen in the office for an easy impression and 3D scan. The impression is typically taken of 3 teeth and sets up in about 20 seconds! These two things are then uploaded and planned, by the doctors, into the robust X-NAV system. Once planned, the patient can be seen for their implant procedure. Utilizing the X-Guide, precision and control are elevated during the implant procedure. The X-NAV technology is considered GPS for implant placement.

Why use X-NAV Technology?

Using an X-Guide allows for precise implant placement planned directly based on the patient’s anatomy. In most cases, a traditional surgical guide would be recommended which would require an impression to be sent to a dental laboratory and then waiting for weeks until it is completed. The X-Guide is a digital surgical guide, completely planned in-house. This allows for a quicker turn-around time from the date of the impression to the time of the procedure. X-NAV Technologies can be used with placement of multiple brands of implants.

Benefits of X-NAV Technology

*Easy X-Guide impression
*Implant placement planned directly by the doctor based on patient’s individual anatomy
*Quick turn around time due to everything completed in-house
*Cost effective option for implant guide
