Our Dental Implant Procedure

Dental implant placement is a precise procedure that requires very thorough diagnostics and meticulous planning and execution. Dr. Setya uses the latest in technology to ensure your dental implant treatment is comfortable, accurate, efficient and minimally invasive.

Precise Diagnostics and Planning

Our Cone Beam CT Scanner creates detailed 3D images that are used in planning your dental implant placement.

Our cone beam CT scanner creates detailed 3D images that are used in planning your dental implant placement.

Dr. Setya starts with full diagnostics to ensure he has a completely accurate view of the condition of your teeth and jaw. For this he obtains a comprehensive series of photographs and X-rays.

This includes intraoral camera pictures of the inside of your mouth and two-dimensional digital X-rays. He also uses our cone beam 3D CT scanner and captures a complete three-dimensional composite image of your entire, jaw, teeth and related anatomy.

From these images he can see the how much bone is available where the implant is to be placed. He will also see the state of your gum tissue and the location of blood vessels and nerves around the implant site. Using this data he will determine how the implant can be stably and safely placed, and how much bone grafting will be needed, if any, to provide adequate support.

Surgical Guides for Accurate Placement

Dental Implant Services in Mission ViejoDr. Setya uses special implant software to plan the precise placement of the implant. When needed, he manufactures a template to place over the implant site known as a surgical guide. The surgical guide will show the exact angle and placement point for the implant and will allow Dr. Setya to place the implant exactly as planned.

Making Sure You are Comfortable

We take every measure to make your implant treatment as comfortable as possible. Dr. Setya will thoroughly explain what will happen in your treatment and will answer all your questions so you are informed and feel at ease.

Our injections are always gentle so you feel no pain. We have blankets and pillows for your added comfort in the chair, and if needed for longer procedures or heightened anxiety, we can provide oral or IV sedation.

Comfortable Extractions

If a tooth needs to be extracted before placing the implant, Dr. Setya uses a special instrument to gently detach the tooth from the ligaments holding it in the socket. He then removes the tooth vertically, which causes little or no damage to the surrounding gum and bone tissue. This means the implant site will take far less preparation, swelling is minimized and healing time is much faster.

Expert Bone Grafting

Where inadequate bone is present to support an implant, Dr. Setya will graft bone material into the implant site to regenerate the needed bone. He uses the latest procedures and materials for minimally invasive and effective bone regeneration.

Growth Proteins for Faster Healing

When needed, Dr. Setya will add special growth proteins to the implant site. These proteins speed up healing, increase the level of tissue regeneration, reduce swelling and prevent infection.

Same-Day Temporary Teeth

When your implant is placed in a visible area of your smile, Dr. Setya will place a temporary restoration tooth to maintain your smile while the implant heals. You also receive a temporary denture after implants are placed for a new implant-supported denture.

Your New, Beautiful Teeth

Dr. Setya will make sure your new teeth are both beautiful and functional. He will place the implant so the new tooth aligns with your other teeth and is easy to clean.

Dr. Setya partners with top restorative dentists to create the high-quality crowns, bridges or dentures that will attach to your dental implants.
