Dentist Brea, CA
Dental implants are one of the most popular and natural-looking methods of whole-mouth restoration. Dental implants are also a great way to replace a single tooth that is beyond repair. Our team at Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry utilizes the latest in dental implant technology to make this restorative option more accessible to you while reducing recovery times and achieving high success rates. These technologies can also reduce your chance of needing a preparatory surgery, such as a bone graft or ridge augmentation.
Soft Tissue Laser
One of the biggest innovations in dental implant technology is the increased availability and effectiveness of soft tissue lasers. A soft tissue laser is a device that emits concentrated beams of light in order to remove tissue. This device is intended to be used in place of a scalpel when our professionals need to remove tissue from your oral cavity.
Soft tissue lasers can offer decreased recovery times because they allow our team to cut away damaged or excess tissue while simultaneously cauterizing it. This cauterization reduces the amount of bleeding caused by oral surgery and eliminates the need for sutures. It also helps to protect you from infection because the laser kills bacteria at the surgical site. Soft tissue lasers can even reduce the amount of swelling and post-surgery discomfort due to the level of precision involved.
CAD/CAM or Computer-Aided Design and Computer-Aided Manufacturing technology allow our team to create your dental crowns in the office on the day of your procedure. Traditional crowns require that our team take images of your oral cavity and make a mold of the teeth that are going to be fitted with crowns. Through the use of CAD, digital images are taken of your mouth and the data is uploaded into a computer program that generates your crowns in minutes instead of weeks.
Guided Dental Implant Technology
Guided dental implant technology utilizes the information gathered through digital imaging to determine the exact locations for each of your implants. This technology helps ensure that the implants are installed in the densest and healthiest areas of your jawbone and that the implants are symmetrically placed. Our professionals use this technology to give you an ideal fit when installing your implants. The precision installation of your implants also aids in reducing healing time and improves the success of your procedure.
Micro dentistry is a general term that describes the minimally invasive dental procedures completed by our team. Micro dentistry involves procedures that are performed with the assistance of magnifying optical devices. When these devices are used in conjunction with guided dental implant technology and advanced installation practices, our team is able to provide you with a high-quality set of dental implants while minimizing stress on your oral cavity.
These technologies are just a few examples of the advanced procedures completed in our office. Our team at Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry is always on the lookout for the latest and most effective dental technologies available to provide you with the highest quality of dental care.
