Many candidates for dental implants have opted out of this procedure fearing large incisions, lengthy recovery time, and, especially, pain. New technology has changed all that – Dr. Rick Kline explains in this video.
In his implant dentistry practice, Dr. Kline has long been using what is only now becoming common for traditional dentists – CAT scans that show the bone in three-dimension. Seeing the bone structure in such great detail enables Dr. Kline to then use sophisticated software to virtually plan out each implant case from start to finish. This is a huge advantage for the patient since it allows for a no-flap, no-incision dental implant placement – you can go back to work the same day, eat immediately after the surgery, and only need to take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
