3D Precise Digital Surgical Guides for Dental Implants

Digitally Planned Dental Implants at Torrance Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center

Creating a dental implant is a complex process, but it is made easier and more precise with the use of digital technology. Before the dental implant can be created, or the surgical procedure can be planned, it is necessary to create impressions of the teeth and take images of the teeth, tissues and jaw to determine the surgical guide for the procedure. Dr. Yagoubian at Torrance Oral Surgery uses advanced digital technology to create 3D precise digital surgical guides for dental implant creation and placement.

3D Intraoral Scanner for Digital Impressions

To create a dental implant, an impression or “mold” needs to be taken of the teeth. Before digital technology, molds for teeth were created by having patients bite down on an oral tray filled with a plaster-type material until a physical impression or mold was created. This method is no longer needed – a more precise and accurate 3D digital impression can be created in minutes using a 3D intraoral scanner.

Part of the process of creating 3D digital surgical guides for dental implant placement includes creating a digital impression. Dr. Yagoubian uses the Itero 3D intraoral scanner to take digital images of the teeth. This is much more comfortable for the patient than creating a physical impression of the teeth – the 3D intraoral scanner is a small, hand-held device that can be maneuvered inside the mouth to take digital images. The images appear on a digital screen in full color. Dr. Yagoubian can show these images to his patients to discuss what will need to be done to complete their dental implant procedure.

3D Digital Surgical Guides for Dental Implant Placement

Creating a digital impression with the 3D intraoral scanner is the first step in completing the 3D digital surgical guide for dental implant placement. The second part is a CT scan of the teeth and jaw. These two digital images are stitched together to create a complete picture of the teeth, bone and tissues in 3D form. This 3D picture is what is used to create the dental implant shape and is the surgical guide for the procedure.

Digital 3D imagery and technology are integral to creating precise dental implants and performing accurate placement.

Paul M.

A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.

This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

The staff here are super friendly and always show genuine concern. I got my wisdom teeth pulled about a year ago and Dr. Yagoubian and his staff made me feel less anxious about the procedure. When I was done, they were thorough with their instructions on how to take care of myself while my wounds healed. They even gave me an ice pack to wrap around my head for the swelling (super useful). Dr. Yagoubian even called to check in on me after the surgery. So when I needed more extractions done this year for orthodontic treatment, I made an appointment here and once again I was well taken care of. Every single person in this office was friendly. During the procedure, they made me feel less anxious even though I was super shaky about getting local anesthesia. They gave me detailed instructions on how to care for my wounds, always gave me an opportunity to ask questions. And once again, Dr. Yagoubian called after the procedure to make sure I was doing well. Now, anytime someone mentions they need their wisdom teeth removed, I tell them Dr. Yagoubian is the man!!

What a nice and knowledgeable Doctor! Dr. Ben took the time to answer all our questions about the removal of all four wisdom teeth. He explained in detailed what was going to happen and the reason why he does the procedure. It’s obvious that he loves what he does. His staff is very welcoming and friendly. The nice lady in charge of the billing explained very clearly everything. Dr. Ben even called us the evening after the surgery to check if everything was ok. We highly recommend Dr. Yagoubian!

Raj G.

Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.
