The SimPlant System - The Next Wave in Implant Dentistry By Dr. Degel on July 18, 2010


For years, dental implants have stood as the most durable and realistic treatment for missing teeth, combining the best of restorative and cosmetic dentistry. Implant dentistry has represented a true technological miracle, allowing thousands of people to chew, bite, speak, and smile with ease once again. Now, thanks to the SimPlant® System, implant dentist Clifford Degel is able to devise treatment plans with even greater efficiency and accuracy than were possible in the past.


The SimPlant® System allows Dr. Degel to plan treatment based on high-definition CT and cone beam scans of the patient’s skull. These crystal-clear images can be captured at any imaging center and then transmitted immediately to Dr. Degel’s computer, at which point he can analyze the patient’s bone density (and decide whether bone grafting may be necessary) and determine the best sites for placing the titanium implants. Because of the clarity of the images, Dr. Degel can sit down with the patient and more easily point out various parts of the patient’s anatomy and explain his or her treatment options.


While the SimPlant System makes treatment planning more efficient, the Mini Drive-Lock™ Dental System allows Dr. Degel to implement these plans in a single visit. A procedure that once took months to plan and complete can now be performed with unparalleled speed and accuracy. Implant-supported porcelain crowns, dental bridges, and cosmetic dentures can be placed in a single day.


At Astoria Dental Group, only the finest materials and the most advanced technologies are used to ensure the comfort, safety, and overall satisfaction of the practice’s patients. The SimPlant® System is only one of the latest and most promising advances that demonstrate Dr. Degel’s commitment to superior dentistry.
