All You Need To Know About Dental Implant Technology

Posted by ridgetopdental on November 12th, 2015

Dental Implant technology has come a long way. According to Ridgetop Dental’s expert Sterling dentists, from providing people permanent solution to missing teeth problems to making it possible for them to get a brand new smile in just one day; dental implant technology has certainly given patients with missing teeth a reason to smile! Here are some modern techniques used by dental implant experts that make your life better and more beautiful.

Teeth in same day implants

If you don’t want to wait months for your new teeth then this method is for you. By using this method patients can enjoy their new smile in just one day. This method allows placement of temporary tooth/teeth to your newly placed dental implant. After about 6 months when your dental implant has completely fused with your jawbone, permanent replacement tooth/teeth is placed.

Despite the fact that it provides fast and reliable solution for missing teeth, it is not appropriate for everyone, especially for patients who don’t have enough natural bone.

Bone Grafts

Bone grafts are used when the patient’s jawbone is not enough to hold an implant. When placing dental implants in Sterling VA, the experts at Ridgetop Dental, which includes ace dental implant specialist Dr Datta, perform x-rays to get a picture of the overall state of patient’s teeth and jawbone; if the bone is not enough to hold the restoration, a bone graft is performed. Bone grafting is a new technique in implant dentistry, but the results achieved by using them are extraordinary. There are no chances of graft rejection by your body as the dentist grafts bone from your body into the jawbone, thus making it firm and stable.

PRGF Technology

PRGF technology opens new horizons in implant dentistry enabling faster tissue healing in most dental treatments. When we get wounded, our body releases proteins that stimulate healing. This Technique isolates from the blood plasma these healing proteins which are responsible for wound healing and tissue rejuvenation. It has the following benefits in dental implant procedures-reduces both in­flammation and the risk of infection or post surgical complications; speeds up the tissue healing and regeneration process. 


X-rays help the dentists to see in between patient’s teeth or under the edge of their fillings. It is the easiest and one of the most reliable methods of detecting dental problems early. Finding and treating dental problems at an early stage can save both time and money.

CBCT scan

A CBCT scan, also known as Cone Beam Computerized Tomography, is an advanced technology used for dental implant placement that produces 3D images of patient’s skull, allowing visualization of internal bony structures in cross section rather than as overlapping images typically produced by conventional x-ray exams. As there is significant reduction in the radiation dosage, it is safe to use and produces excellent results.

Ridgetop Dental’s Dental CT scanner from Carestream Dental provides precise planning for dental implant placement, giving patients the best results.
