If you are missing teeth and self-conscious of your smile, wear dentures that are uncomfortable, or if you’ve been told that you lack sufficient bone structure for other restorations, dental implants are the next best thing to healthy, natural teeth.
Having revolutionized dental care services over the past 40 years, dental implants are comprised of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the body. In many cases, dental professionals surgically place implants in the upper or lower jaw, providing a permanent solution that functions naturally and supports the contour of the patient’s face and smile. Even so, implants can also be used to provide stability to dentures with “implant-supported dentures”.
There’s no doubt—with proper placement and care, dental implants are designed to last. However, given that most implants are placed “freehand,” there is a risk for error. That’s why Dr. Do and the staff at Red Oak Family Dentistry welcome your call today. With extensive training in surgical placement and cosmetic restorations, including dental implants, Dr. Do incorporates advanced technology for greater precision and predictability for your Dental Implants.
Computer Guided for the Best Results
For optimal placement of dental implants, Dr. Do at Red Oak Family Dentistry uses a comprehensive, three-dimensional computer guided method for the best result and greater long-term success.
While accuracy is achieved in placing dental implants, computer guided surgery provides a significant advantage at every stage —from planning to placement to communication with the patient. In addition, it increases the safety of implant surgery, while minimizing the level of discomfort for the patient.
With more reliability and efficiency, Dr. Do proudly offers patients the benefit of the latest techniques for placing dental implants using computer guided implant surgery. If you are missing one or more of your teeth, Dr. Do welcomes the opportunity to explain the many benefits of dental implants, as well as the latest surgical techniques and computer guided surgery.

3D Cone Beam Technology
With the power of repeatability, cone beam technology converts dental images into three-dimensional views using a cone-shaped beam that rapidly rotates around the patient, delivering less radiation. As a diagnostic and treatment planning tool, Cone Beam 3D Imaging provides a detailed look into bone structures and jaw anatomy, giving dentists the ability to see root positions, as well as plan for tooth extraction and precise placement of dental implants.
Advanced Implant Planning Software
Delivering greater predictability and success, dentists take a top-to-bottom approach to dental implant placement with advanced implant planning software. In regards to depth, angulation, considering adjacent structures, and identifying potential complications (pre-placement), each case is fine-tuned, as dentists plan for optimal results with virtual placement of dental implants prior to the procedure.
Advanced 3D Printing Technology
Used in conjunction with digital implant planning and placement, advanced 3D printing technology is an innovative solution, ensuring that virtual planning is carried into real-life. All elements are combined to create an exact model of a patient’s jaw, including bone, teeth, soft tissues, underlying structures and internal structures (veins and nerves). The components of the model, when printed together, are used to fabricate a precise surgical guide. Unlike traditional models, our guides are designed and developed by our doctor, in-house.
