One of the uses of technology that we have, which is just fabulous, is the use of guides for implant placement. Guided implant placement is different than just placing implants by hand, in that we can pre-plan the entire surgery prior to the day of surgery in the software. We've taken a three-dimensional scan of the patients jaw, we've placed the implants in the software. We know exactly where they need to be. We can stay away from any of the anatomical structures that we need to stay away from. We know where the implant angulation is, where it needs to be ideally to support the crown or the bridge.
These are tight spaces. Sometimes you only have a millimeter in-between the tooth and the adjacent tooth and implant, so it's very, very tight. We can pre-plan all of that out in the software in advance. Then we have the guide fabricated, which then allows us to take that guide, the day of surgery, take it to the mouth and place the implant through the guide knowing that we have 100% certainty of exactly where that implant is going to be in the jawbone. Since you're going to have it for life you want to know that it's going in the right place. A guided surgery is, I think, the way to go and that's something we offer for our patients here.

Dental implants are one of the greatest accomplishments of modern dentistry. Now, when you lose a tooth, it can be replaced with a dental implant that looks and feels a lot like the tooth you lost. Dental implants are held in place by your jawbone and restored with a natural-looking replacement tooth. Your dental implants can make you so confident while chewing and smiling, you might even forget you have them!
We offer single-tooth and multi-tooth replacement, partial and full arches. A consultation with your dentist can reveal what the best choice for you is.
Implant-secured dentures are a big step up from traditional dentures. Instead of relying on saliva or paste to hold your teeth in place, your dentures lock onto your dental implants for a strong, durable hold. You’ll no longer have to worry about your teeth wobbling when you chew or speak, or worse, falling out.
Don’t go through the rest of your years without the teeth you need to enjoy a full, rich life. Schedule your consultation today by giving us a ring at 919-296-0409 or by using our online form. Our Hillsborough, NC dentist at Carolina Bright Smiles are here to help you and your smile.
