When choosing to receive dental implants, you want to be sure that you’re working with a practice that operates with the latest in dental technology and implant techniques. This is why Dr. Howard Cooke chooses to invest in guided implant surgery in our Dallas, TX office. Our high-tech practices utilizes guided implant surgery to provide patients with safe, predictable implant care. Instead of performing free-hand surgery where guesswork is involved, guided implant surgery combines digital imaging with physical guides to make sure dental implant surgery is more accurate and safe. These implant guides direct Dr. Cooke to the exact angle, depth and position during surgery, leading to drastically improved results.
Since dental implants can be a permanent solution to replace missing teeth, it’s important to work with a team that will do everything to make your new smile a success. The combination of Dr. Cooke’s 20 years of experience with his advanced medical education and investment in guided implant surgery gives every implant case a drastically improved success rate. If you or a loved one are in need of dental implants, we encourage you to ask about guided implant surgery. The procedure can be used for virtually every implant case, from individual dental implants all the way to All-on-4® full mouth replacement. By taking digital images using our cone beam CT scanner, we can 3D print a unique guide. This guide is placed over the jaw during surgery and directs Dr. Cooke into the precise locations for implant placement. Often, since most of the planning and work is done ahead of time, this will cut down on the overall surgical time, getting you out of the dental chair quicker!
