3D cone beam imaging for precise implant planning
Dr. Munz uses the Sirona 3D cone beam CT scanner to obtain detailed, 360-degree views of your mouth and jaw area for planning your restorations and implant procedures.
The detailed, three-dimensional nature of the scan allows Dr. Munz to plan the exact position of the implants ahead of time, eliminating the need for exploratory surgery. When necessary, it also allows him to create surgical guides to assist in the implant placement. This makes the procedure more efficient when many implants are being placed at the same time.
Gentle, no-pain procedure
Dr. Munz has made implant placement is a very streamlined procedure. In one visit he can extract teeth, as needed, and place all the implants. To make sure the process is completely comfortable Dr. Munz uses the most effective anesthetic available (Profound Anesthesia) to numb the area. His injections are so gentle, patients say they don’t even feel them.
Dr. Munz will never proceed with a procedure if you are feeling any discomfort, and will immediately adjust medication or the treatment to make you comfortable.
Get all your extractions in one visit
Dr. Munz takes various factors into account when extracting teeth. For example, he might need to remove sharp bone on the bottom arch to prepare for the dentures. He has streamlined the extraction process so that he can do all the extractions at once during a comfortable, efficient procedure.
Careful socket preservation
After a tooth has been extracted Dr. Munz preserves the socket with bone grafting material. New bone grows around and into the graft material, which gradually dissolves as the extraction site heals. This preserves the shape of the socket and fills up the empty space, creating enough bone support for an implant to be placed in the future.
Precise Denture preparation using advanced technology
Dr. Munz takes meticulous care with every denture and will ensure that your new teeth are stable, comfortable and well-fitting.
Dr. Munz’s main goal is to give his patients the results they want from their dentures. The patient approves the final mold before it’s processed, and after the denture comes back, they can make any changes they want until they are fully satisfied. Dr. Munz’s first step is to plan the creation of the denture taking into account the patient’s needs and objectives.
Planning your Dental Implant procedure
Dr. Munz will arrange for you to receive a 3D CT scan which provides him with detailed information about your mouth and jaw. The scan allows for a comprehensive examination of how the teeth are arranged in the mouth. It also reveals the amount of bone that is available to work with when placing the implants.
Designing your new Denture
Dr. Munz will take impressions of your dental arches for planning your new dentures. If you already have a denture, Dr. Munz can use it as a reference for the new denture, because an existing denture contains a wealth of useful information.
Dr. Munz takes impressions using a special method that gives an accurate duplicate of the original denture without distortion. This is a proprietary technique that he has developed over the years and which streamlines the overall process. He also creates wax study models to plan and adjust the proposed dentures. The impression is sent to the lab for the crafting of the denture, with Dr. Munz’s exact specifications for how the new teeth should look.
For patients without existing dentures, Dr. Munz uses 3D imaging software and study models to plan their new dentures.
Fitting the dentures for precise comfort
After the dentures have been created, the patient can come in for a “try-in” appointment, where they try on the dentures and request any adjustments to be made for maximum comfort and appearance.
The dentures are sent back to the lab for adjustments and the finalized version is produced.
Your Satisfaction Guaranteed
Dr. Munz will make any amount of changes to the dentures at no extra charge to ensure that they meet his standards and that you are fully satisfied with how they look and feel.
Dr. Munz believes that all patients should have access to dentures that are functional yet affordable. Financing is made available to patients so that anyone has the opportunity to get high-quality dentures.540-739-3206 or click here to request an appointment online.
