Dr. J.D. Murray of Pampered Smiles in Atlanta, GA believes that all dentists should use the latest technology for dental implant procedures to ensure that patients receive the best possible outcomes. He is encouraging all potential dental implant patients to choose a qualified dentist who uses the most advanced imaging technology to guarantee optimal results.
The dental implant procedure involves surgically placing a small metal screw, or stud, into the jawbone. Once the screw has healed and fused naturally with the jawbone, and custom-made artificial crown is attached. When completed properly, the entire dental implant mimics the structure of a natural tooth, providing full biting force and identical aesthetics. Dental implants can be used to replace a single missing tooth or an entire series of missing teeth.
Using the latest imaging technology prior to the implant surgery is crucial in ensuring that the implants are placed correctly and in the right location. Each patient has unique anatomy, and not placing the implants in the correct location can result in a failed procedure, nerve damage, or chronic jaw pain.
“The placement of dental implants must be exact for best results, and that's why we use computer-enhanced 3D treatment planning so we can correctly analyze the bone quantity, bone density, and bone location of each patient,” said Dr. J.D. Murray, dental implants dentist in Atlanta, GA. “Traditional X-rays just don't provide the level of detail that is needed to ensure an optimal outcome.”
Each potential Atlanta, GA dental implants patient of Dr. Murray's first goes through a series of consultations and exams to ensure that they are good candidates for the procedure. With his advanced imaging technology, Dr. Murray can determine if the patient's jawbone is dense enough to support a permanent implant, as well as ensure that the implants won't interfere with the major nerves that run through the jawbone as well.
Dr. J.D. Murray has been practicing dentistry for more than 30 years. He is a graduate of Howard University in Washington, DC, where he completed both his undergraduate and dental education. He served in the U.S. Army Dental Corps for three years after graduation, and also completed a continuing education degree from The American Orthodontic Society in 1996. Dr. Murray is committed to giving back to his community, and was director and owner of the Atlanta Institute of Dental Careers, an institute created to teach students to become exemplary office personal and assistants in the dental industry.
