Using 3D printed guides to accurately place dental implants.

Using 3D printed guides to accurately place dental implants.   This case involved replacing 2 teeth that were congenitally missing at birth. After the patient had braces to open up the gaps, 2 dental implants were placed.  The teeth (crowns) were then attached to the dental implants to create a beautiful long-term smile.                         The dental implants were placed in the most accurate way possible, This was done produced by “virtually” placing the dental implants in a computer program, which was then transferred to same position in the mouth, using a 3D printed guide.

Dental Implants – most accurate placement using a 3D printed guide

The most accurate way of placing dental implants in the mouth, utilises the exciting, modern technology of 3-dimensional planning and printing. The below case was performed by Dr. Rumit Desai. This patient presented with a missing lower right molar. After discussing the benefits and risks of all the options, it was agreed that a single dental would be placed. Moulds and a 3D x-ray (a CBCT scan) were taken in order to plan the optimal position of the dental implant. Using advanced software, scans of the a) moulds and b) 3D X-ray were combined and a 'virtual' implant was placed in the correct position (fig.1a and 1b) fig.1a Drill guide with 'virtual' implant in placed in correct position. This is then made using a 3D printer to use inside the mouth fig.1b 'Virtual' implant placed using the software in the correct 3D position                     After confirming that the 'virtual' implant was in the optimised position, it was a transferred to a 3D printer and a custom drill guide was constructed (fig.2) Drill guide made in the 3D printer. The guide utilises the correct position of the 'virtual' implant in the software for accurate positioning in the mouth                     Using the drill guide, a dental implant was placed in the correct position within the mouth (Fig.3). Fig.4 shows the final crown in situ. Fig.3 Fig.4                   At Belmont Park Dental Care, we provide dental implants in Lewisham, Blackheath, Greenwich and the surrounding areas.

Invisalign – recently completed case!

This patient had Invisalign treatment at the practice. The patients upper front teeth were more forward than she liked and there was spacing between the teeth. After a clincheck simulation, Invisalign aligners were made, and the patient changed them every 10 days for 7 months to achieve fantastically aligned teeth! After the treatment, fixed retainers were placed at the back of the teeth in order to keep them in place.   Before After               She discussed her experience of her Invisalign treatment at Belmont Park Dental Care - Click here to view our gallery of invisalign cases.

3-D scanner – No impressions!

We would like to introduce our new ITERO - 3D Scanner, that the practice has recently invested in.   The scanner allows for a 3D image to be taken of the teeth required for crowns, bridges, Invisalign and dental implants. This means that uncomfortable moulds are a thing of the past in most cases! The images of the teeth are sent directly to the laboratory in order to make your final crowns! The below video gives an idea of how the scanner works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_omrBvyYIQ

Invisalign

Belmont Park Dental Care is offering Invisalign clear braces to straighten teeth.   How it works? After a consultation, moulds and pictures of your teeth are taken. These are sent to Invisalign headquarters in America. A 3-D Clincheck analysis is carried out and a projection of the new straightened tooth position constructed: Example Clincheck The Clincheck is checked with the patient and then approved for the aligner manufacturing.             The aligners are worn 22 hours a day and changed every 2 weeks. The complexity of the tooth movement required is the determining factor in how may aligners are required.                 At Belmont Park Dental Care, Invisalign starts from £1995. A Free Consultation and 0% finance is available. Example finance plan.

Teeth in a Day with Dental Implants

This patient, attended to the practice complaining of a loose baby tooth. The adult tooth had never developed (this happens in 1-5% of people). Over time, the root of the tooth had shrunk and it was now wobbling. After discussing all the options, we decided to place a dental implant. Straight after this, a temporary tooth was immediately attached to the implant, to give the patient a 'fixed tooth in a day'. This saved the need for any uncomfortable dentures. 3 months later, we attached the final crown, with excellent results! Before After             At Belmont Park Dental Care, we offer single tooth dental implants, multiple teeth in implants, all on 4 and teeth in day covering the Lewisham, Blackheath, Lee and Greenwich areas and the rest of London. We have a comprehensive website about Dental Implants, which highlights our work and case studies in more detail. Click here to visit our Dental Implants website.
