FORT WORTH, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fort Worth implant dentist, Dr. Ryan Crain of Texas Grins believes that all dentists should use the latest dental technology for implant surgery. That’s because the latest advancements in 3D imaging and computer-guided dental implant surgery provide patients with significantly better outcomes than conventional implant procedures.
“Because the system creates perfect images of our patient’s unique anatomy, we can plan the placement of implants with extreme precision. The process is much quicker and less traumatic than placing implants without computer assistance.”
When dentists place dental implants, they fix a small titanium screw into the jawbone. The screw acts as the root for the new tooth. Once the screw is set, the dentist places a tooth-colored crown on the screw to create a natural-looking tooth. The process can be used to replace a single missing tooth or multiple missing teeth.
Patients no longer have to endure the time delays and discomfort of the traditional x-ray and implant procedures. That’s because dentists now have access to better technology. Dr. Crain uses the Galileos 3D Imaging System to create high-resolution images with the lowest achievable dose of radiation.
“The Galileos system plays a huge role in implant surgery,” says Dr. Crain. “Because the system creates perfect images of our patient’s unique anatomy, we can plan the placement of implants with extreme precision. The process is much quicker and less traumatic than placing implants without computer assistance.”
Dr. Crain also uses the CEREC computerized restoration system that can fabricate restorations such as crowns, in-lays, on-lays, and veneers in just one visit. By combining CEREC with the latest capabilities of the Galileos 3D Imaging System, Dr. Crain is able to provide his patients with a new standard of quality implants and restorations.
Dr. Crain is passionate about the value of CEREC in dental procedures. That’s why he works as one of the mentors at the Scottsdale Center of Dentistry. The Center’s mentors are an exclusive group of dentists who represent the highest level of CEREC proficiency.
In addition to general dentistry, implants, and restorations, Texas Grins also provides treatment for patients with sleep apnea. Dr. Crain offers oral appliance therapy as comfortable alternative to the CPAP machine.
