Springfield Dentist Reveals How Guided Surgery Can Improve Dental Implant Results
Grant Olson, DDS of Innovative Dental of Springfield highlights several benefits of surgically guided dental implants.
Springfield, MO — For many people interested in replacing damaged and/or missing teeth, dental implants can be a permanent solution, states Dr. Grant Olson, a dentist in Springfield, MO. Anchored to the jawbone and fitted with a customized dental crown, he notes that this advanced restoration can mimic the look, feel, and function of a natural tooth while providing the stabilization necessary to speak and chew properly. Thanks to continuing upgrades in dental technology, he adds, the implant procedure can now be performed more effectively than ever with the proper equipment.
At Innovative Dental of Springfield, Dr. Olson and his associate, Dr. Megan Pinkerton, utilize the Galileos™ 3D Imaging System to surgically guide the placement of dental implants for optimal results. According to the two dentists, this revolutionary technology provides a high-resolution view of the patient’s teeth, gums, and bone structure, which helps them identify the most accurate placement of implants for a more natural, comfortable fit. Other benefits of surgically guided dental implants can include:
- Enhanced predictability for results
- Decreased risk for potential complications
- Shorter overall treatment and recovery times
- Lower treatment costs
Though innovative techniques and technologies can play a major role in achieving excellent results, Dr. Olson ultimately stresses the importance of choosing the right dentist for dental implants. Without the proper training and experience, he says, even the most advanced equipment becomes a non-factor. “Ask questions and do your own research to ensure your prospective dentist has the qualifications and expertise necessary to provide the safest, most effective dental implant treatment possible.”
