Charvet Dental Center Now Uses High-Precision and Efficient Tools to Place Dental Implants

People who struggle with missing, damaged or chipped teeth will benefit from dental implants. Yet, many people dislike having to spend multiple weeks and appointments for the dental implants, taking too much time out of their schedule. Thus, dental professionals attempt to find methods for speeding up the process and decreasing the number of appointments necessary.

Under the direction of Dr. Hunter L. Charvet, the team at Charvet Dental Center uses the iTero® digital scanning to customize the dental implant process. Not only is this tool more efficient but it can also provide much more detail when creating the implant for the patient. Using the 3D surgical-guiding system, Dr. Charvet can digitally map out the patient’s mouth and develop an implant that fits the exact specifications.

In the past, the only option for measuring the teeth was to create a mold and then send the same mold to a dental lab for several days or even weeks. Fortunately, the iTero digital scanning system makes the process easier and a possibility in the office. This technology greatly benefits the patient experience and helps the patient feel less pain during and after the procedure. Another benefit of this process for dental implants is that Dr. Charvet and his team can customize the appearance of the implant.

Patients can receive a dental implant that will look and feel natural when in use. By inserting the implant into the gums, patients will be able to eat their favorite foods without worry. With dentures, patients have to always be wary of the dentures becoming loose and falling out. With dental implants, those worries are a thing of the past. Dental implants require less work than other tooth replacement options since they are not removable and only require the same level of cleaning as other teeth.

Patients will not feel any pain when Dr. Charvet uses the iTero® digital scanning and 3D surgical-guiding system to increase the productivity and proficiency of a chairside appointment. Patients can even choose to receive the dental implant at that appointment instead of having to wait several weeks for the next step in the process.

If you are interested in scheduling an appointment or for learning more about this new technology, then call Dr. Charvet with the number below and begin the path to life with an implant that truly fits.
