From a single missing tooth to an edentulous jaw, not having true confidence in your smile has both serious health consequences and negative effects on a person’s self-confidence. Wickham Dental Care uses the latest technology to ensure that patients receive the highest quality treatment options. One of those options for missing teeth is implants utilizing guided surgery. Patients with missing teeth have traditionally been treated with dentures or bridges that require daily maintenance. Dental implants offer patients a permanent solution with results that look and feel natural.

“Your smile impacts your lifestyle,” said Dr. Sadesh Kumar of Wickham Dental. “Technology has greatly improved which allows me to come up with the perfect aesthetic.”

Dr. Kumar’s extensive training in implantology can help restore a patient’s health, as well as improve the appearance and function of teeth. Using NobelGuide, a complete treatment for diagnostics, treatment planning and guided implant surgery, Dr. Kumar achieves precise results and higher patient satisfaction.

With guided surgery, Dr. Kumar can execute implant surgery with incredible accuracy. Powered by custom software that helps provide a complete picture by assessing detailed 3D patient scans, implant placement is easily visualized on screen. Using guided pilot drilling achieves the correct angulation, direction and depth when placing implants. This precision results in higher accuracy and predictability in implant positions, significantly lower swelling and pain and high patient satisfaction.
Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural tooth and root, so daily care including flossing, brushing and regular preventative care will give longevity to the implants like another tooth.
“Patients’ quality of life improves,” Dr. Kumar said. “They can eat anything they want.”
Another component that is a valuable aide to promote healing in dental procedures at Wickham Dental is using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for tissue regeneration. PRP develops from the centrifugation of the patient’s own blood and it contains growth factors that influence wound healing. Benefits include enhanced soft tissue healing and bone regeneration, which in turn results in reduced bleeding. Wickham Dental Care uses PRP in most of the oral procedures like periodontal surgeries and implant surgeries, including tooth extractions.
Plasma rich growth factors heal from underneath to the top, which eliminates the pulling of stitches on the treatment area while healing. Recovery and the healing process speed up so the risk of infection or any other post-surgical complication is lessened. Using PRP will ensure a noticeable improvement and quicker healing with reduced pain.
