Q: A friend of mine had dental implants without cutting the gums or needing stitches. How can this be? Sammy in Deerfield
A: Sometimes technology turns a “billion dollar” industry into a “million dollar” industry; or even less! Example: when was the last time you moseyed over to your local travel agency? Thanks to the Internet, your answer might be: “15 years ago.”
With the development in digital radiography, we can now accurately visualize the topography of the underlying bone beneath the gums to place the appropriately sized implant at the correct angle and depth without incising tissue. Much like sonar can map the floor of the ocean to assist in laying cable.
This allows dentists with the proper equipment and experience to place implants without incisions and sutures by penetrating directly through the gingiva, into bone, often eliminating a second surgery three to four months later to uncover the buried implants. For free info on this, contact us.
