implants were placed into a patient’s mouth with the aid of film-based X-rays to
help with proper depth and angle. While effective, there is now a better option with advanced dental technology. Through the
use of SIMPLANT technology, Brand Ahn, our periodontist
in Larkspur, CA, can use 3D imaging to handle scanning, mapping the area and implant
placement. Such advancements give patients several advantages.
Safer, More Predictable Process
Dental implants have always
had a high rate of success, but with new technology, the process is made even
safer. Better imaging capabilities allows our periodontist to find any potential
complications before the dental implant procedure even begins. This allows us to find a solution
that works for you before we begin the surgery.
With greater planning, our
periodontist will complete the surgery much faster. It is still a surgery, so

Improved Patient Education
Before the surgery, our
periodontist will speak with you at-length about the procedure. It is vital for
you, as the patient, to understand what will happen, so you feel 100 percent
confident in the treatment. The images are much more detailed, so you have a
greater understanding of what we will do.
Less Invasive Techniques
Since our periodontist can
pinpoint the precise zone for the surgery, you get to enjoy reduced discomfort.
It also allows for a quicker recovery through an expedited healing process.
