Computer Guided Dental Implant Placement Ensures Greater Accuracy and Less Down Time
If you have had a tooth extraction, you are likely looking into treatment options for replacing your missing tooth. An ideal permanent solution for replacing missing teeth is dental implants. Dental implants look and function like your natural teeth while preserving your jaw bone in the process. Dr. Jacqueline Subka is a periodontist practicing computer guided implant dentistry in Thousand Oaks, CA.
After a tooth extraction, and without a root to stimulate your jaw bone, the bone will immediately start to deteriorate causing surrounding teeth to drift and fall out of alignment. You could suffer broken teeth, sore muscles from impeded chewing function, and a sunken facial structure. Dental implants preserve bone while blending seamlessly with the rest of your smile. With computer guided dental implant surgery, procedures today do not take as long as in the past and placement of the dental implant is much more precise.
