Dr. Vanstrom, an Atlanta Implant Dentist, has been surgically placing dental implants for 10 years. He has passed a rigorous 400 hour post graduate training program through the Medical College of Georgia’s Dental School, in combination with the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, to learn to surgically place and restore dental implants.
Since graduating dental school in 1988, Dr. Vanstrom has logged hundreds of continuing education hours refining his skills in both restoring and placing dental implants.
By combining the art of both surgical placement and restoring implants, Dr. Vanstrom and his associates are able to save most patients from having to travel extensively between specialists, from doctor’s office to doctor’s office. And, we can greatly control the cost for our patient’s implant procedures as well because we can do it all under one roof.
Implant technology has changed and developed greatly over the past few years. We now utilize CT generated computer software programs such as www.materialise.com , www.sirona.com and www.CEREC.com to create amazing precision in both surgical placement and restoration of the dental implants. Computer generated surgical guides are now the standard of care in our practice.
Precise, time saving, cost saving dental implant, root canal, crowns, bridges, dentures and dental implant retained fixed teeth treatment that sets us apart.
What does the bone structure look like? How great is the distance to the nerve canal? In all dental disciplines, there are numerous questions that can be answered far more easily using 3D x-rays. The third dimension increases clinical safety for our patients. While allowing for pin point accuracy in dental treatment.
SICAT Function is the first integrated digital 3D solution to visualize real patient-individual movement of the lower jaw within the 3D volume. The anatomic traces of the temporomandibular joint can be displayed for every possible position in the volume.
Sirona Dental Systems has introduced ground-breaking solutions for integrated implant planning and treatment. Solutions that combine the digital impression scanning and design capabilities of CEREC with the diagnostic accuracy of Sirona’s 3D X-ray units.
The CEREC data with the prosthetic proposal is transferred and directly integrated into the 3D X-ray data. This permits the best possible positioning and alignment of the implant, abutment and restoration.
The result: Minimally invasive, accurate implantation placement.
Precise implant planning is only so good as its implementation. The solution is a surgical guide with drill-depth limitation, which is precisely calibrated to the chosen implant and position. We order the surgical guide in the central production at SICAT (SICAT CLASSICGUIDE or SICAT OPTIGUIDE) or produce it ourselves in-house with our milling unit, the MC XL (CEREC GUIDE). The implant is placed stress-free at the implant site with optimum alignment and height and fit.
The Mercedes of dental implant restoration is Individual Crowns cemented onto multiple implants. These teeth never come out. They become “real” new teeth. You simply brush and floss them like real teeth. Listen to Joanie’s testimonial video and hear what a change we made in her life.
Whether you are having a single back tooth replaced with an implant, a cosmetically challenging front tooth or all of your teeth replaced with dental implants, we are the one-stop dental implant center for you.
Below are photos of Lillian’s full mouth dental implant Smile Makeover and another Restorative case. Just like Joanie above, Lillian is delighted with her new, lifelike teeth.
“My implant teeth are just like real teeth. I can’t stop smiling.” -Lillian Picardo
The following is an educational video that describes and illustrates what a dental implant looks like, how the actual implant is placed, and finally how it is restored with a crown.
A reasonably economical and very predictable and esthetically pleasing way to replace a full set of missing upper and lower teeth is with locator attachments. With proper techniques and precision, we can now snap in your loose and ill-fitting dentures and partial dentures.
You will be so pleased to find that once again you can confidently smile, laugh, chew and enjoy all of your favorite foods again. And, that bulky upper denture can be opened up and thinned on the roof of your mouth so you can enjoy eating and drinking much, much more.
Dentures can be made to fit and feel more like your own permanent teeth with snap on locator attachments.
