The tremendous advance of modern medicine is translating into dentistry and dental implants, including on site labs, to make treatments safer and less invasive. This translates into better and quicker results, fewer complications, and more satisfied patients overall. Our team at Revive Dental and Implant Center is constantly studying and updating our own treatment techniques in order to provide you with the best services.
Soft Tissue Laser
The laser is a high-tech precision tool. Its level of action is similar to a light-emitting diode, with the difference that the light emitted by the semiconductors is a laser. In addition, its wavelength is higher compared to other lasers (specifically 810nm). Thanks to the energy that is generated by the light beam of the device, we achieve the necessary therapeutic effects in the tissue. In addition, the soft tissue laser helps ensure a faster recovery, as well as a reduction in side effects. We achieve a decrease in bleeding during the treatment because a sterilizing effect is achieved in the area where the laser is applied. Conversely, we managed to reduce the amount of local anesthetic during treatment, as it provides an analgesic effect in those areas where it is applied.
Platent Rich Plasma and Platent Rich Fibrin
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a simple procedure where the blood of the patient is extracted prior to the procedure and platelets are recovered from it. These platelets are then placed over the wound once the procedure is complete. These platelets effectively help in treating the wound, and since there are platelets placed on the wound, it helps the wound heal a lot faster and recover more effectively. Platelet-rich fibrin is also used to speed up the healing of soft and hard tissue.
CAD-CAM is a type of technology that allows us to make our implants using a computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided manufacturing (CAM). This helps us design the structure and a subsequent machining, sintering, and 3D printing system that works under the orders of a computer-generated design. The use of this new technology has changed the approach to conventional implant prostheses. This offers us new horizons and perspectives that greatly facilitate the achievement of high-quality restorations, with high aesthetic commitment and in a shorter space of time.
Digital Panoramic X-Ray
Panoramic x-ray studies are a tool of great diagnostic value in the event of the infrequent complications which might be a result of implant rehabilitation treatments. It allows us to reformulate your restoration as appropriate, and digital panoramic x-ray studies of dental implants are helpful for our team because they guide us in a logical and complete sequence. In turn, we avoid omitting important details. These protocols constitute a tool designed to facilitate our work.
3D Cone Beam
We use the 3D cone beam to capture three-dimensional imaging of the maxillofacial anatomy, irradiating less doses than conventional tomography. The cone beam provides incredibly accurate images with high diagnostic quality. With its help, we can make an adequate visualization for the placement of dental implants.
Guided Dental Implant Tech
The computer guided dental implant is a technique that allows us to place the implants in the exact place that we have previously planned through the help of a computer and 3D technology. This planning of dental implants by computer is carried out on a three-dimensional image that we obtain thanks to a low-radiation three-dimensional scanner. The implants are placed almost without surgery, and no stitches or incisions are required. A single hole is made through which we introduce the dental implant. The gum does not need to be opened, and therefore causes very little inflammation.
Dental micro implants used in micro dentistry, also known as mini dental implants, are a type of implant whose main characteristic is their reduced diameter when compared to conventional dental implants. Thanks to their small size, we can use them if you have a significant bone loss at sites where the conventional implant could not be placed without much more complex surgeries aimed at increasing bone width.
When it comes to performing dental procedures and surgeries such as the placement of dental implants, we have these valuable methods, which greatly facilitate the entire surgical process. At , we keep up to date with new technologies including DNA bacteria detection and studies of oral pathology.
