Guided Dental Implants
Independence Dentist Providing Guided Dental Implants
Patients in need of tooth replacement have relied on Independence Family Dentistry for dental implants Northern Kentucky residents know are effective, expertly placed, and restorative. Always at the cutting edge of technology, Dr. Danny Nakhla and his team utilize 3D Galileos Cone Beam images to create surgical guides that make dental implant placement a snap.
A Safer, More Efficient Tooth-Replacement Option
Guided dental implant surgery is a state-of-the-art procedure that allows patients to receive a set of replacement teeth with a minimum amount of time spent in surgery. This unique implant technique uses the Galileos Cone Beam and computer modeling software to create a “guide” for the implant surgery, ensuring a more precise and efficient placement. It also allows for a more pleasant experience – shorter time at the dentist, minimal discomfort during recovery and an overall aesthetically pleasing and satisfactory result.
What to Expect
We start by taking 3D images of the mouth and jaw using the Galileos Cone Beam. This imaging technique allows us to examine both the superficial and underlying structures of the jaw area – areas that could once only be revealed via surgery, but are necessary to take into consideration when planning for and performing implant procedures.
After the images are taken, we make a virtual 3D model of the jaw. The 3D model will ultimately serve as the template for the implant guide that will be used during the surgery, as well as allow the dental laboratory to pre-manufacture a set of replacement teeth that will precisely fit the jaw. This model can be manipulated on the computer screen to identify prime implant placement locations with optimum accuracy. We can even virtually “perform” the procedure on the screen to more accurately visualize placement of dental implants Northern Kentucky residents can rely on for safe, effective tooth replacement.
After the guide and set of replacement teeth are created, the surgery is performed – typically under local anesthesia. During the procedure, the template we have produced is temporarily placed in position on the jaw, and the openings serve as precise guides for the accurate placement of the implants. The implants then fit seamlessly into the predetermined sites, and the replacement teeth are attached – all in a single visit.

Replace Missing Teeth with Natural-Looking Dental Implants
At Independence Family Dentistry, we know that missing teeth may embarrass you and can ultimately lower your self-confidence. Missing teeth can also affect your oral health, your ability to speak well and your ability to eat nutritious, wholesome foods. One of the optimum solutions for replacing missing teeth is dental implants.
Dental implants are biocompatible fixtures that are surgically placed into your jawbone, and then completed with either a porcelain crown or an attachable dental prosthesis. Dental implants are ideal tooth-replacement solutions because they actually mimic the roots and look of a natural tooth. At Independence Family Dentistry, Dr. Danny Nakhla can both place the implant and complete the restoration.
Durable & Reliable
The jawbone’s main purpose is to nourish your teeth, so without teeth to “feed,” the jawbone begins to deteriorate. Dental implants are the only tooth-replacement option that simulates tooth roots, prevents bone loss and keeps your facial structure intact. Dental implants are also durable, and have a success rate of more than 96%. Dental implants easily become a natural part of your smile, and you can even care for your implants the same way you do your natural teeth.
