Dental implants are a common fix to address tooth loss from decay or injury. As the premier oral surgeon in Reno NV, RTOS uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure the success of dental implants and minimize any discomfort. Our highly-skilled team strives to provide you with the best results and complete satisfaction when looking in the mirror.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root affixed to your mouth’s bone structure. The implant acts as an anchor, allowing an artificial tooth to be placed into the space to match your other teeth. An implant is commonly made up of three parts: the implant itself, the abutment, and the crown. Today’s implants are virtually unnoticeable, and offer superior function and looks over ‘flippers’ and bridges.
Dental implants are not for everyone. You must have healthy gums and sufficient bone strength to mount the implant. Luckily for those searching for ‘oral surgery near me’ in Northern Nevada, RTOS now integrates cutting edge software and a piece of equipment that can analyze your unique bone structure to determine the best course of action when proceeding with a dental implant procedure.
Reno Tahoe Oral Surgery & Implant Center now utilizes the new X-Guide™ Dynamic 3D Navigation System from X-Nav Technologies. With X-Guide™, implant procedures result in less post-op discomfort, faster recovery, and a smile that functions just as great as it looks.
The X-Guide system elevates our surgeons' control and precision throughout the entire implant process, including during virtual planning and the placement itself. Think of it like a GPS for the surgeon’s drill. X-Guide utilizes a 3D treatment plan to provide turn-by-turn guidance during surgery, giving the doctor the ability to make precise movements for more exact drilling of the implant's intended slot. With the X-Guide system in our dental practice, same-day guided surgery is now a reality for more patients. We have adopted the X-Guide so patients like you can receive implants that are functional, aesthetic, and optimally-placed based on your unique anatomy.
Before your procedure, the surgeon will pre-plan the ideal implant location using X-Nav’s advanced software. Your mouth is unique, so by gaining a 3D view of your anatomy, our surgeons can map out the optimum drill path, obtain detailed nerve visualizations, and even “place” virtual teeth. This equates to smaller incisions, preservation of your tooth structure, and efficient use of your valuable time.
During your surgery, the doctor will utilize a small, lightweight X-clip in your mouth that matches to your digital plan with a specialized, radiation-free camera system. This gives the doctor a 3D view of your jawbone, soft tissue, surrounding teeth, as well as the digital treatment plan to follow. The X-Guide navigation technology provides the surgeon with turn-by-turn guidance along the surgical path while they utilize a digital hand piece to perform drill movements.
Medical neurosurgery has been performed similarly for many years, but digital planning & navigation tools now make it even more precise. The X-Guide system allows our surgeons to make the most informed adjustments to account for your surrounding structures. This heightened accuracy results in less discomfort, and a strong foundation for a brilliant smile.
