Bite Lock technology is fairly straightforward, thus, the questions we receive about the procedure and technique tend to be similar.  Below are some answers to questions we frequently receive. Should you need more information, e-mail us or call 800-616-7972.

How long does the dental implant procedure take?

With Bite Lock, patients receive dental implants and replacement teeth on the same day; however, it depends on each patient’s individual case and the type of procedure being performed.  Find out if you qualify for a free CT scan and Bite Lock consultation to determine what your procedure might look like.

How do dental implants work?

A dental implant acts like a natural tooth root and actually preserves jawbone mass over the long term, something other replacement teeth techniques can’t do.  Dental implants are titanium screws placed into the jawbone. Your natural bone bonds with the implant to form a firm foundation for replacement teeth. Contact our office today to learn more.

Why are the back implants placed at an angle?

To maximize strength and stability, we place angled back implants toward the front of the mouth to ensure that the implant makes the most contact with the jawbone. By using this type of placement, we avoid critical obstacles such as the nerve in the jaw and the maxillary sinuses. Contact our office for more information.

What type of X-ray technology do your dental professionals use?

We use a state-of-the-art Cone Beam CT scanner. This device scans oral structures and produces 3D images that aid in the analysis of bone density and the precise placement of dental implants. Contact us for additional information about our technology and the Bite Lock technique.
