Guided Dental Implant Surgery

Dental implant surgery has become one of the most effective and sought-after treatments to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are durable, long-lasting, and help to restore a beautiful smile. Dental implants are comprised of 3 facets, including the anchor screw, the dental abutment, and the crown. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or several missing teeth.

With advancements in the field of dental implant surgery, we are now able to more effectively place dental implants using guided dental implant surgery.

What is guided dental implant surgery?

Guided dental implant surgery is an important scanning tool that helps our oral surgeon when placing dental implants. The use of guided dental implant surgery allows for the utmost precision and accuracy when placing dental implants. This added precision makes for a more effective dental implant surgery and lowers the chance of any unforeseen complications arising.

Guided dental implant surgery enables Dr. Pashapour and his surgical team to fully customize your dental implant procedure and address all of your specific needs when placing your dental implants.


Is Guided Dental Implant Surgery Safe?

Yes, guided dental implant surgery is a safe, effective method for the placement of dental implants. Because guided dental implant surgery allows Dr. Pashapour and his surgical team to virtually plan your surgery, we are able to know the exact details of your specific case, minimizing the risk of unforeseen complications. Guided dental implant surgery uses a surgical template that is designed using a mold of your teeth. After this mold is taken of your teeth, the surgical guide can be made, which will perfectly fit over your teeth.

In the surgical guide, there will be a small opening where your tooth or teeth are missing, which is where we will guide the surgical instruments into place when placing your dental implants. This surgical guide allows for exact precision because our Arlington implant dentist uses the surgical template as a guide.

Guided dental implant surgery ensures that the dental implant is placed at the ideal trajectory and angle for the most natural-looking results possible. Dental implants placed with guided dental implant surgery have a high success rate of healing properly with little to no complications. The margin of error when placing implants with guided dental implant surgery is very small because we are able to eliminate any unforeseen variables or circumstances through virtual planning. Through extensive preparation, Dr. Pashapour and his surgical team are aware of your specific needs and know exactly what to expect when placing your dental implants.

What should I expect before guided dental surgery?

Prior to your guided dental implant surgery, Dr. Pashapour and his surgical team will take a mold of your teeth. This mold will then be used to create the surgical guide, which will show the exact location of your teeth, the size of the space where you are missing teeth, and more. Our Arlington implant dentist can use the findings from this mold to customize your dental implant surgery. Through this information, the size, shape, trajectory, and positioning of your future dental implants can be determined. Additionally, planning with guided dental implant surgery makes the procedure as short as possible, ensuring that no unnecessary incisions or drilling are performed.

What should I expect after guided dental implant surgery in Arlington?

Immediately following guided dental implant surgery, you may experience sensitivity, irritation, or inflammation at the surgical site. These symptoms can be managed with medication and the application of ice packs. A diet of soft food is recommended until your surgical site heals properly. As you heal from guided dental implant surgery, your dental implants will go through a period of osseointegration, where your dental implant adheres with your gum tissue and living jawbone in order to create a secure, stable foundation for your new teeth. Osseointegration may take between 3-5 months before it is fully complete. Pashapour Oral + Facial Surgery guarantees the life of your dental implants.
