Choose Quality Dental Implants: Glendale Oral Surgery and Lytle, Tate and Stamper
What are Dental Implants?
There are a lot of reasons that people choose to get dental implants. Glendale patients may have recently lost a tooth in an accident or due to a cavity. They might have debated over treatment methods until deciding on implants as the best option for their needs. For some patients, it is as simple as wanting a more attractive smile and greater confidence in their appearance.
Lytle, Tate and Stamper is a practice of experienced oral surgeons working in private offices. We offer a high level of quality and service in every procedure, as is reflected in our work creating dental implants. Glendale patients who choose LTS can be assured that they will receive treatment using the best products and technology.
Lytle, Tate and Stamper uses Straumann products for its dental implants. Our Glendale patients should be comforted to know that Straumann is the world’s largest supplier of dental implants. In part, this is due to the company’s commitment to the durability and quality of its products.
The dental implants we employ connect to the patient’s mouth at both a bone and tissue level. Unlike other treatment methods, such as dental bridges or dentures, dental implants address missing teeth while promoting bone growth and preventing bone resorption. As a result, patients can continue to smile a natural-looking, healthy smile without concern of deterioration around the replacement tooth.
Our dental implants give Glendale patients a secure and precise fit. Because of the reliability, simplicity, and customizability of the parts we use, we are able to serve patients efficiently and effectively for the long-term. Clinical research shows that dental implant treatment has a long-term success rate of over 95%, much higher than that for tooth-supported bridges, partial dentures, and full dentures.
More about Dental Implant Technology
All three of Lytle, Tate and Stamper’s facilities operate using the latest technology. For example, our practice utilizes i-CAT cone beam 3D imaging as part of the evaluation for dental implants.
This tool supports our Glendale patients during diagnosis and treatment. The i-Cat creates three-dimensional scans of the mouth. This gives LTS doctors a detailed understanding at the state of existing teeth, bone, nerves, and tissue. Three-dimensional perspective means that we can create cross-section views of the health of the entire mouth in a way that traditional dental x-rays does not support.
Typically, we use 3D images during the patient’s initial consultation. This allows the doctor to determine the quality, shape, and density of the bone where the dental implants will be placed.
In selected cases, 3D images are used to virtually place implants. They then generate stents or templates to place the implants more accurately. This is called guided implant and surgery.
The information that the doctor collects allows him to decide more precisely where implants will be placed. This is important because the doctor must work around the mouth’s vital structures, including sinuses and nerves. By using more advanced technology, we help patients get better results.
