Press Release Summary: The Doctors of New York Oral, Maxillofacial and Implant Surgery are national leaders in the new techniques and technologies in the placement of dental implants
Press Release Body: Drs. Douglas Goldsmith, DDS, Gary Orentlicher, DMD, and Andrew Horowitz, DMD, MD, of New York Oral, Maxillofacial, and Implant Surgery, in Scarsdale, New York are national leaders and lecturers in the new techniques and technologies for the minimally invasive placement of dental implants.
Dental implants can now be placed to permanently replace a patient\'s missing teeth with making only tiny openings in the gums. New x-ray technologies allow dental surgeons to first accurately visualize the areas that will be receiving dental implants three dimensionally. Software programs are available that then allow the doctor to visualize and plan the placement of dental implants \"virtually\" on a computer screen. Appliances are made from these \"virtual\" plans which then are used by the doctor to guide the placement of the dental implants into the exact locations in the patient\'s mouth, as planned on the computer.
Placement of dental implants using these new state of the art technologies allows the doctor to place dental implants very quickly and accurately, frequently with only tiny openings in the patient\'s gum tissue! The benefits to the patient receiving dental implants using these techniques are enormous. Pain and swelling are minimal. Frequently, patients require only a few doses of mild pain medications. Recovery time is minimal. Most patients can return to their normal lives and work schedules usually the same or next day. Using these new technologies, many times patients can leave the dental surgical office with fixed, permanent teeth in their mouths on the same day!
The use of \"virtual\" three dimensional implant planning is especially beneficial in the planning and placement of dental implants in challenging and difficult cases. There are many patients that may think that they are not candidates for dental implants because of loss of bone support from long term denture wear. Other patients may have lost bone, teeth and gum tissue, or have abnormalities as a result of an injury, a birth defect or a growth problem. Abnormalities of the jaw bone may also be the result of benign or malignant growths in the mouth or jaws. Orthopedic and spinal problems may limit the amount of time a patient can sit in a dental chair. Patients may have medical problems or be on medications that make dental surgical procedures more difficult. Finally, patient stress, anxiety, and phobias can prevent them from undergoing procedures that require long periods in a dental chair.
These difficult cases are ideal for treatment utilizing minimally invasive dental implant surgery. Dental implants can be placed quickly and accurately, minimizing patient stress, pain, bleeding, and time in the dental chair.
