Whether it is a result of tooth decay, gum disease, or an unfortunate accident, losing a tooth can be a very traumatic experience. Dr. Daniel Kubikian, of South Jersey Periodontics & Dental Implants is the area’s leading specialist for dental implants.
Dental implants, which are tiny metal posts positioned into the jawbone, provide stable support for the replacement teeth which are placed on top of them. Because dental implants allow the replacement teeth to look and function normally, they are an excellent long – term solution for substituting missing teeth.
As technology has advanced and evolved, so has the type of dental implants available. Implants can range from single tooth implants, which replace one missing tooth without having to disturb neighboring teeth, to a complete arch, which involves replacing an entire row of teeth.
At South Jersey Periodontics and Dental Implants, Dr. Kubikian uses the most advanced technology to offer patients “Teeth in a Day”. This procedure, which takes only a few hours depending on the patient’s needs and the severity of the situation, allows patients to leave the office with non-removable teeth in one appointment!
To make this magic happen precisely, Dr. Kubikian combines two unique technologies. First, he uses a 3-D Cone Beam Scan to get an accurate 3-D picture of the patient’s face, teeth, and gums. Then, he utilizes his Digital Impression Scanner. By combining these two devices, Dr. Kubikian can perform a much more accurate and guided procedure, which optimizes the patient’s success rate, cuts down on procedure time and ultimately discomfort too.
