Dental Implants - Dr. Rafael Yanez - Philadelphia, PA
A dental implant is a root device, usually made of titanium, that takes the place of a natural tooth root. Depending on your needs and condition, dental implants can replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth as well as provide support for a bridge, eliminating the need for a removable partial denture.
Reasons for dental implants:
- Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
- Restore joint pain or bit problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
- Restore a patient’s confident smile.
- Restore or enhance facial tissues.
- Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.
Dr. Yanez at i.dentical - all about your smile provides the following dental implant services:
- Implant consultations
- Computer generated surgically guided implant placement with the i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Imaging System
- Implant abutment planning and selection
- Implant crowns
- Bone grafting
The i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Imaging System allows Dr. Yanez to "virtually" place dental implants. This technology removes the guesswork by producing more accurate images than traditional radiography which results in better success rates for dental implants. This 3D imaging provides high-definition, digital imaging with low radiation in approximately 8 seconds.
According to the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, "69% of adults ages 35-44 have lost at least one tooth due to decay, disease or trauma, and 26% of adults have lost all permanent teeth by age 74."
