At Brandon Complete Dental Care, we stay current with dental technology in order to provide our patients with the most comfortable and precise treatment when receiving dental implants.
Undergoing an implant procedure may make some patients a bit anxious because the thought of tools and equipment being used inside their mouth makes them worried. Luckily, for patients who experience these feelings, we offer sedation dentistry to help calm their nerves and get them ready for a life-changing treatment.
By combining the skills and knowledge of both Drs. Richard and Brenton Assing with our advanced technology, your treatment will be efficient, painless, and safer than ever before. Learn more about the different types of equipment we’ll use for your dental implant procedure.
Don’t you hate nearly choking as the sticky impression goop oozes out of your mouth at the dentist? At our Brandon dental office, you no longer have to suffer from this experience because we use cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanning to take impressions of your mouth, face, and head.
CBCT can create a digital 2D or 3D x-ray image of your entire oral cavity, including your tissues, gums, and teeth. Drs. Richard and Brenton Assing can view the image at any angle and different depths in order to understand each aspect of your mouth and create an extremely accurate treatment.
All you have to do when receiving a CBCT scan is stay still for 10 seconds and bite down on a small disposable tab to ensure proper alignment. CBCT also diminishes radiation levels, ensuring your safety and comfort are top priority.
Digital imaging is an outstanding improvement in dentistry that offers features to enhance the viewing experience, including any problem areas. CBCT can create digital X-rays that use low levels of radiation and are easily displayed instantly on a computer screen for both our patients and doctors to see. X-rays are important for diagnosing dental decay, failing crowns and fillings, planning dental implant placement, and more.
At your initial consultation, Drs. Richard and Brenton Assing will examine your oral health to see if you may need a supplemental procedure before receiving dental implants. These treatments are meant to restore your health and prepare you for a successful implant procedure.
To help prepare you for your dental implants, we use laser dentistry for our supplemental treatments. Laser dentistry has many advantages over traditional techniques including:
We work with the Biolase Epic™ Laser as well as the Waterlase® for our supplemental procedures that involve removing decay, treating gum disease, and restoring lost bone or gum tissue. Laser dentistry helps us complete your preliminary treatment efficiently and comfortably so you can smile with your dental implants as soon as possible.
Yes! Laser dentistry is a completely safe and effective technique used in dentistry today. Lasers are less invasive than traditional drills and dental tools. They also offer a faster procedure time and recovery period than ever before. Laser technology is approved by the ADA, and our techniques will restore the health of your smile the right way.
Creating your final restoration for your implant procedure has become easier and more efficient than ever before. At Brandon Complete Dental Care we have a unique, in-house lab that can create your restoration in just one day using the CEREC system.
This machine uses specialized cameras to create a 3D digital model of your tooth so Drs. Richard and Brenton Assing can place a nearly exact match of your natural tooth over your dental implant fixture. They will choose an appropriate color to blend with the rest of your teeth and show you to ensure you’re satisfied with the new restoration.
Once you’ve given our team the “OK” to move forward, the CEREC system will mill your new crown within just 10-20 minutes. We’ll be able to place your permanent, natural-looking crown once your implant site has healed and you can leave our office with a stunning new smile.
Now that you’ve learned about the different pieces of equipment we use for dental implant procedures, you may be ready to get started on your treatment. To schedule your initial consultation, fill out our contact form below or give our Brandon office a call today. Your beautiful, new smile awaits.
