Advanced Technology for Lifelike Dental Implants
The long-term success of your dental implants begins at the planning stage. To help ensure optimal results and maximum success, we use advanced 3D digital imaging technology to create a thorough and highly detailed surgical guide.
Digital X-rays are commonly used in routine diagnoses and dental treatments because they’re safer and more accurate than traditional X-rays. Digital radiography produces a clear and precise picture of your teeth, their roots, your jawbone structure, and more, and emits up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional radiography.
Digital Panoramic X-Rays
Digital panoramic X-rays display your entire mouth in 3D on a single X-ray. Several digital X-rays are captured at different angles. The images create a model that accurately shows where teeth are missing or mal-positioned, where teeth are in relation to each other, and how dense the jawbone is around the site(s) of your missing teeth.
3D Cone Beam Scans
Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a type of CAT scan that provides 3-dimensional images of the head and mouth. Cone beam scans can be vital in diagnosing and treating severely impacted wisdom teeth, selecting the ideal site for dental implant placement, and avoiding major nerves and blood vessels when planning oral surgery.
Detailed Surgical Guides
Because implant placement is such a precise procedure, your oral surgeon will first design a detailed surgical guide to ensure optimal placement of your dental implant posts. Implant placement is aided and guided by digital 3D cone beam technology. In addition to placement, our advanced surgical guide also determines how far into the jawbone each implant should be inserted, ensuring uniformity and optimal, longer-lasting results from your implant surgery.
