Whether you want to schedule a consultation or have questions about a procedure, we’d love to hear from you!

What are Custom Implants?

Custom implants in oral surgery refer to dental implants that are specifically designed and fabricated to match an individual patient’s unique oral anatomy. Using advanced imaging and fabrication technologies, such as CT scans and 3D printing, dental professionals can create implants that perfectly fit the patient’s mouth and meet their specific dental needs.

The Custom Implant Procedure in Oral Surgery

The custom implant procedure typically involves several stages. Firstly, a detailed 3D scan of the patient’s mouth is taken, which captures the precise anatomy of their jawbone, teeth, and gums. This digital model is used to design the custom implant, ensuring it will fit perfectly and function properly.
Once the design is complete, the custom implant is fabricated, often using a 3D printer or a milling machine. The implant, typically made of biocompatible materials like titanium or ceramic, is then surgically placed into the patient’s jawbone. After a healing period, during which the implant fuses with the bone, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, completing the restoration.

The Benefits of Custom Implants

Custom implants offer several significant advantages:
  • Perfect Fit: Custom implants are designed to fit precisely in the patient’s mouth, reducing the risk of complications and enhancing comfort and function.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Since they’re designed to match the patient’s unique dental characteristics, custom implants provide a natural-looking replacement for missing teeth.
  • Improved Functionality: By perfectly fitting the patient’s anatomy, custom implants can restore normal chewing and speaking functionality more effectively than standard implants.
  • Bone Preservation: Custom implants are designed to maximize contact with existing bone, which can help preserve bone health and prevent bone loss.

Why Choose Custom Implants?

Custom implants are a popular choice for a variety of reasons:
  • High Success Rate: The precise fit and personalized design of custom implants often result in a high success rate.
  • Personalized Solution: Each custom implant is uniquely designed to meet the patient’s specific dental needs, ensuring optimal functionality and aesthetics.
  • Improved Comfort: Custom implants often offer a more comfortable fit than standard implants, enhancing the patient’s overall experience.

Conclusion

Custom implants offer a personalized solution for patients needing oral surgery, providing an optimal fit, natural aesthetics, and effective functionality. This personalized approach often leads to improved patient comfort, better surgical outcomes, and high patient satisfaction. As with any oral surgical procedure, it’s crucial to consult with your oral surgeon or dentist to understand the potential benefits and determine if custom implants are the right choice for your specific needs.
