Dental implant treatment is one of the best ways to replace missing teeth.
The dental implant itself is a little metal ‘rod,’ which is placed in the bone (as your normal teeth are) and this is used to support one or more teeth.
The problem is that this sounds like the most horrible procedure known to man – “as if going to the dentist wasn’t bad enough, now they want to cut me open and drill holes!!!”
The truth is that in the vast majority of situations, there is very little pain and discomfort afterwards, and even during the treatment, you should not feel a thing. But this is easy for me to say right!
I want this treatment to be over as quickly as possible for my patients.
And I also want the placement of this dental implant to be in the most ideal position, allowing for the best tooth placement on the implant, and I want to be sure I am a safe distance from anything like a nerve, other teeth and air sinuses.
There is a really predictable way of doing this, and I have made a short video for you to help explain this.
I hope you enjoy it!
