Digital Dental Implants
With our state-of-the-art cone beam imaging technology, there’s no need for messy impressions during your appointment. Our cutting-edge CBCT machine is used to produce three dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. These images help Dr. Chung get the most accurate picture of your mouth to create custom dental implants that look and feel natural. Our digital dental implants guarantee beautiful results and a healthy, restored smile.
Implant-supported dentures are stronger and more natural-looking than dentures because like natural teeth, they are anchored directly to the jaw. This means that you’ll be able to chew, smile, and speak with confidence once your restoration is complete. There’s no need to worry about adhesives and cleaning solutions. Just brush and floss as you normally would and see Dr. Chung for regular cleanings. If you’re missing most of your teeth, a permanent, implant-supported restoration might be the right solution for you. Give us a call at (301) 599-0303 for a consultation with Dr. Chung today.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini dental implants are an alternative to traditional implants. They are typically used in situations where a smaller implant is needed to fit into a narrow location. Smaller teeth and incisors are good candidates for mini dental implants. The posts are roughly half the size of traditional dental implants, typically about the diameter of a toothpick. They can also be advantageous to patients who have experienced significant bone loss. Call us today to see if mini implants are right for you.
Q: What are dental implants?
A: Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. After the implant has been placed into your jawbone and completely healed, a custom crown is attached to the post and the result is a natural-looking replacement tooth.
Q: Am I a candidate for dental implants?
A: To determine whether dental implants are the right option for you, Dr. Chung will need to assess your oral health during a consultation. He will use specialized technology and his expertise to examine the health of your jawbone and gums, and decide whether or not they can support a dental implant.
Q: Is dental implant surgery painful?
A: Dr. Chung is as gentle as possible during all procedures. Most people find dental implant surgery very easy to tolerate. Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or pain-relievers. Ice can also be helpful in easing pain.
Westphalia Dental utilizes DIOnavi EcoDigital Implants in office. We’re able to help plan and manage your procedure and even complete this smile transformation in just one visit. It’s far more comfortable than conventional dental implant surgery. There is no surgical incision and your recovery is far faster than an incision-based procedure. With the high tech and personalized treatment plan, Dr. Chung is able to ensure precise implant placement and design the proper look and function that works for your smile.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Chung will understand the goals you have for your smile and perform an initial exam in order to create a solution that meets the needs. After you both agree on a treatment plan, we’ll be diving deeper into a more advanced digital imaging treatment plan. The procedure planning begins, but you won’t have to even visit the office! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions during this time, but you won’t have to come back to the office until treatment day. On this day, it’ll only be a couple of hours before you’re walking out with a brand new smile with your implant and replacement tooth (or teeth).
To learn more about this system, give Dr. Chung a call and schedule a consultation to see how we can transform your smile in the blink of an eye.
