All of our dental implants are planned using 3 D imaging, also known as CBCT so that we can take advantage of the available bone present and avoid vital structures such as nerves. In many cases this allows us to avoid the expense of bone grafting.
Also, by using the new technology of osseodensification, we are able to preserve your bone rather than removing it to place an implant. This promotes faster healing, resulting in a shorter time frame to complete your implant treatment. In many instances, the entire process can be completed in as little as 2 months. Our office goes one step further by using PRP/PRF with our implant surgeries.
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma has concentrated platelets. These platelets contain substances called growth factors. One of the most important things growth factors do is greatly accelerate the healing process. Here at Dr. Fong’s office, we routinely use PRP or more currently, PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) in our surgeries to enhance the body’s own natural healing ability.
