Teeth Replacement Options
Nowadays, the terms ‘dental implants’, ‘crowns’, ‘bridges’, ‘veneers’, and ‘dentures’ have become a well-known term in our daily lives; particularly for those people with single or multiple missing teeth. These procedures are predictable for tooth replacement and are sought after by patients who are conscious of improving their appearance as well as to improve essential functions such as eating and speaking. The success rate of these procedures is determined by several factors such as: the patients’ existing lifestyle, the implant materials & technology being used, and the expertise involved during the surgery.
In addition to providing conventional dental implant treatment, Specialist Dental Group also offers the NobelGuide Teeth-in-an-Hour procedure, which uses a combination of the patient’s CT scan and proprietary 3D software to plan the implant placement ahead of time. This results in minimally invasive surgery with quicker healing and the patient leaves the clinic with his or her new teeth in one hour. Specialist Dental Group has created a patient education video on the NobelGuide Teeth-in-an-Hour procedure.
Specialist Dental Group generally uses zirconium crowns for dental crowns. Zirconium-based dental crowns are superior in structural strength reinforcement and aesthetic quality. Instead of relying on a dental technician alone, well-fitting crowns could be robotically made using CAD-CAM technology with significantly reduced human intervention. Research has shown that the fit of these CAD-CAM crowns are excellent even at a sub-microscopic level.
