Advanced technology has made it easier than ever to place dental implants. At our dental implant office on Long Island, our board-certified periodontist uses a technique call Guided Implant Surgery to accurately plan and execute the dental implant placement procedure.
The Guided Dental Implant Surgery Process
Dentistry has more tools than ever before to give you a beautiful, healthy smile. Our periodontist takes both traditional x-rays and 3D images to visualize the tooth structure and jaw bone. With the Cone Beam CT scan, our specialists can view the anatomy of the mouth as a cross-section and better plan the implant surgery.
Then our periodontist uses a guided implant surgery program on the computer to virtually plan the dental implant procedure. It eliminates the guesswork and allows the doctor to place the dental implant or implants in a safe, efficient, and predictable manner. The computer program and 3D images allow our specialists to:
- Determine the density of the jaw bone
- Determine the required width of the implant
- Determine where the nerves of surrounding teeth lie
Dentistry is a combination of science and art. With the advanced computer technology and 3D imagery, our dental implant specialists are able to accurately predict the successful outcome of the dental implant procedure.

The development of the Guided Dental Implant Surgery system has a lot of benefits for both our specialists and for our patients.
