Dental implants are titanium screws that are surgically positioned in the jaw. This is currently the most optimal solution for replacing missing teeth. When the bone available in the jaw is insufficient, a pre-implant bone reconstruction surgery is then necessary to be able to place the implant.
When a tooth needs to be extracted and you already know that you are going to replace it with an implant, socket preservation is the ideal solution to ensure an optimal bone environment for placing the dental implant afterwards.
This technique allows recreating bone in the area of the uppers premolars and molars when the bone is missing at this level. Dr. Oth uses the latest technologies to perform this technique and achieve the most optimal results as possible.
Dr. Oth can offer you the use of 3D printed guides that contain all the information on the positioning of the future dental implant. This is done through a preoperative computer-based surgical simulation.
When the maxilla is extremely resorbed, the zygomatic implants will allow us to offer you an implant-supported prosthetic solution. These implants are longer than conventional implants and will be positioned in the cheekbone.
