Do you have trouble eating certain foods? Do missing teeth or poorly fitting dentures determine what you can eat? Wouldn’t it be great to eat anything you want, just like when you were a kid? How much would that change the quality of your life?
If you have difficulty eating certain foods, or you avoid food you would love to eat because of missing teeth or poorly fitting dentures, you could be a candidate for dental implants.
Dental implants are titanium screws that resemble the roots of the teeth and are placed into the jaw where a tooth was lost. The implant knits to the bone over a couple of months, and once secure, is restored with a crown or non-removable bridge.
Implants can also be used to retain removable full or partial dentures. They can make your denture so secure, you will be able to eat whatever you want without your denture moving all over!
This procedure has been around for over forty years, and the techniques have improved with each passing year. Currently, the best and latest development has come with the advent of Implant Treatment Planning Soft¬ware. This procedure involves taking a CT scan of the patient’s head (a CT scan is like a CAT Scan with only 10 percent of the radiation). This scan is then sent to Dr. Coleman who uses the software to pre-surgically plan the length, width and type of implant he wishes to place in the exact, most stable location. This allows a greater level of precision than ever before. The plans are then sent to a lab where the technicians fabricate a surgical stent which allows Dr. Coleman to place the implant without the use of scalpels or sutures. The benefits to the patient are enormous. Less discomfort and decreased chance of poor placement, numbness, or misaligned implant/crown relationship are just some of the advantages.
Do all implant surgeons use this technology? No, but Dr. Coleman decided this technology is a must for his patients.
Dr. Coleman has extensive training at the world-famous Las Vegas Institute (LVI) for Advanced Dental Studies. He has completed every cosmetic course offered at LVI, as well as courses in Neuromuscular TMJ care. He is certified in Oral Conscious Sedation ("Sleep Dentistry"), Invisalign® and PPM (Pure Power Mouth Guard), and is now offering a comfortable alternative to noisy, cumbersome CPAP’s for Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
