The short video presentation below shows the process by which Dr. Noumbissi and his team place one-piece zirconia dental implants. Assessment of the area where the tooth needs to be replaced is made clinically during a consultation but also enhanced with advanced 3D dental imaging obtained with a dental (CBCT) scan. The implant placement procedure is planned performing virtual surgery using Anatomage’s InVivo implant planning software. Once the planning is completed, the data is uploaded to Anatomage’s laboratory, a computer generated surgical guide is printed and returned in the mail in as little as 48 hours. The surgical guide allows for precise and virtually error free implant placement but also negates the need for large flaps and excessive bone exposure. This minimally invasive protocol reduces surgery time, improves implant placement accuracy, greatly reduces post surgery discomfort and drastically reduces healing time.

This slideshow is an extended version of Zirconia implant placement in Compromised Bone released on 03/01/2012. More often than not and especially in emergency cases, patients are undecided about the method of tooth replacement they desire a the time of tooth removal. As a result extractions are done in a conventional manner and even with the greatest care bone defects can be created during the process of extraction. The natural process of bone resorption during healing after extraction can also make things even more complicated.
Warning: This is a surgical slideshow with graphic depictions and images of a bone grafting procedure and ceramic dental implant placement.

Except for a few “lucky” people, most of us don’t enjoy a visit to the dentist. And how can we blame you? There’s not a lot to look forward to.
At Miles of Smiles Implant Dentistry, we understand you’d probably rather be someplace else than a dental chair. That’s why we go above and beyond to defy — and exceed — your expectations.
First and foremost, we only place dental implants, and we know our craft very, very well. Dr. Noumbissi is a regular keynote speaker at dental conventions and seminars around the world, teaching about the proper technique and applications for dental implants and more specifically, ceramic dental implants. He brings that same penchant for education to his practice, where he ensures that you understand what is going on at all phases of your procedure, which helps reduce stress and eliminate fear.
