Minimally Invasive Dental Implants
Dr. Vikas Goud had utilized these technological advancements in Implant Dentistry to its maximum providing minimally invasive implant treatments to his patients with exceptional success. Working alongside his in- house Dental Implant Specialist, Dr. Vikas Goud is thoroughly capable of providing all phases of dental implant treatment beginning from surgery to final stage to give natural looking teeth.
Expertise and Knowledge in Implant Dentistry
For each implant surgery, there is meticulous planning involved with all the doctors sitting together and planning on the planned procedure, coordinating on making sure that the implants are accurately and correctly positioned, and that the correct materials are used for the concerned procedure..
3D Technology Used for Making Procedure Minimally Invasive
He adds, “We can create a surgical guide that places the implant in the right position and at the correct angle. This eliminates much of the cutting and the suturing traditionally connected with dental implant surgery.”
Surgery Possible Even if There is Not Enough Bone
Bone Grafting, however, may be in some cases necessary and for this the surgeon applies special growth factors which he centrifuges from drops of the patients own blood. This hastens creation of new bone and makes the dental implant stable. The doctor can also perform a “sinus lift” which is done when the sinus cavity expands to the extent that here is not enough bone available for the implant. This procedure uses bone grafting material to add bone to the upper back jaw.
Natural Looking Beautiful Teeth
Dr. Vikas Goud creates crowns, dentures, and bridges which are natural in appearance and are extremely durable. For all these devices, he uses highest quality material, including ceramic zirconia, which makes them strong without any requirement of any metal.
Benefits of Dental Implants
- The biggest benefit of a dental implant is that it is the closest to how natural teeth look in appearance. The difference between the two is barely noticeable.
- They are extremely strong and durable and last for changes with minimal maintenance required.
- It allows the person to talk, chew, and exert pressure similar to the natural teeth
- They do not require the shape or grind of the adjacent natural healthy teeth as is required with dental bridges
- Dentures give 10% of normal chewing power whereas a dental implant provides power which is as equal to a natural healthy teeth.
- A loss of tooth results in the bone at the site of the tooth to get shrunk. A dental Implant prevents this and preserves the bone. Dentures on the other hand cause progressive bone loss. Due to continuous loss of bone, dentures over time lose their fit. If that is not enough, the lower face starts to collapse in on itself due to loss of bone and excess muscle tension resulting in formation of deep wrinkles and folds.
What Constitutes a Dental Implant?
There are many drawbacks associated with dentures when compared to dental implants of which the most common is the chewing and biting power which is not more than 10% of normal and the bones loss. This is the reason why most dentures lose their fitting with time and need to be replaced.
This is mostly seen with the lower dentures, as Dr. Vikas Goud says “It is almost impossible to keep a lower denture stable without some implants to support it“ The suction from the palate of an upper denture helps keep the upper denture stable; however, with an implant supported denture the upper palate can be done away with. He adds, “Patients enjoy being able to taste fully and not have the false palate on the roof of their mouth.”
Fixed In Dentures
Patients who have been wearing dentures for an extended time would normally need bone grafting to be able to support the implants for Fixed-In dentures, but they can also take advantage of a breakthrough procedure called “All-on-four.” “With All-on-Four, patients do not require bone grafting. We use the best available bone and place special long implants at an angle to provide the support required” mentions D. Vikas Goud.
