Computer Guided Dental Implants
Dental imaging took a major leap at the beginning of the millennium with a three dimensional technology known as Cone Beam Computed Tomography. With cone beam computed technology (CBCT) dentists can get amazing detailed 3-D views of the facial skeleton, jaws, teeth and sinus areas. Today our 3D CBCT scanning machines have the lowest dose of radiation delivering high quality images at our fingertips.
Traditional dental x-rays can capture two dimensional views of bone and teeth but CBCT scans can image the anatomical structures with little or no distortion, more clarity, and unlimited perspectives of an area of interest in the oral cavity or sinus regions. The details allow us to visualize the surgery way before you sit in the dental chair for your surgery.
CBCT scanning has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in Implant Dentistry. They are used in oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics and orthodontics. A dental cone beam scan offers invaluable information when it comes to the assessment and planning of surgically placed implants. It is the preferred method for pre surgical assessment of dental implant sites. This technology allows for the optimum final results and maximum patient satisfaction.
