Guided Dental Implants
Guided Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.
Dental Implants Overview
Guided Dental Implants provide excellent support and stability. No one will ever know they are not your real teeth. With dental implants, you can have a full, permanent set of teeth that look and function as though they are your own natural teeth.

Are You A Candidate For Dental Implants?
Generally speaking, if you have lost teeth you are a candidate for dental implants. It is important that you are in good health, however, as there are some conditions and diseases that can affect whether dental implants are right for you. For example, uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, radiation to the jaws, smoking, alcoholism, or uncontrolled periodontal (gum) disease may affect whether dental implants will fuse to your bone.
It is important to let Dr. Cohen know all about your medical status (past and present) together with all medications you are taking, whether prescribed, alternative (herbal) or over-the-counter. With dental implants, you can have a full, permanent set of teeth look and function as though they are your own natural teeth.
Dr. Cohen will be with you through all stages as your Dental Implant Specialist
There are four clear stages to receiving guided dental implants. Dr. Cohen will work with you to make sure you understand each stage. What can be expected for your specific case, how long it will take and what is medically involved. Dr. Cohen encourages our patients to ask questions so they actively understand the entire process. Our goal is that you are as comfortable as possible as we work together to build your new permanent smile.
Stage 01: Planning
Crucial to long term success, this stage is where we analyze your complete requirements and create a ‘blue print’ for the final successful result.
Stage 02: Placement
This stage takes 1-3 hours and is an outpatient procedure where the oral maxillofacial surgeon places the titanium dental implant in exactly the correct position. When appropriate, a surgical guide is made to allow exact location positioning of the guided dental implants.
Stage 03: Restoration
The healing phase takes 2-6 months depending upon your quality of bone. The prosthodontist then takes over using the new “foundations” to build the new smile. This phase is very detailed and cosmetics and function come together to give a pleasing functional result.
Stage 04: Maintenance
We follow up with our patients to ensure the longevity of our work. We recommend one year of enrollment in our dental hygiene program to ensure the ongoing maintenance of your new smile.
What exactly is a Guided Dental Implant Procedure?
Guided Dental implants are stable and mimic the look and functions of natural teeth so well because they actually become part of the bone through a process called ‘osseointegration’.
To prepare the bone to receive the titanium metal screw that is the base of the implant a small hole is drilled into the bone where the teeth are missing, much as a carpenter would drill a pilot hole in wood to start a wood screw. After the titanium screw is inserted into the bone it is covered to protect it for the 3-6 months that the bone needs to heal and integrate with the implant.
Once the guided dental implant has become firmly anchored to the bone a temporary crown is placed on the implant until the gum has a chance to shape itself in such a way that it will look natural when the permanent crowns or bridges are cemented in place.
