3D Scan and Digital Implant Planning
Advantages of digital radiography
It can reduce the radiation required by conventional X-rays along with providing a more clear and more accurate image. This image can be enlarged, rotated, increased in clarity, and generally manipulated for increased understanding by your dentist. It provides the images instantly, so theres no delay in image processing. This technology also allows us to work in a greener environment by eliminating the need for chemicals that are required to process traditional x-rays and their subsequent disposal.
Cone beam CT scanning & 3-D imaging software (SimPlant) for optimal implant planning and treatment (Guided Implant Surgery)
We are trained in the latest dental implant technology, guided implant therapy. This revolutionary technique utilizes virtual planning along with a three-dimensional CT scan system and allows dental implant placement with minimal surgical intervention. This innovative time-efficient procedure makes the placement and restoration of dental implants faster and easier. By working closely with our restorative dentists, sometimes patients are able to leave the office with their replacement teeth intact.
Traditional X-rays are not as accurate as CT scans, for the process of dental implants, they do not allow for the transfer of prosthetic information to the radiograph. It also fails to determine prosthetic outcomes and doesn’t allow for the transfer of prosthetically relevant information at the time of implant placement. A special scan is performed while the patient is seated in a Cone beam CT Scan machine, which looks much like a regular dental panoramic machine.
We attain Superb Image Quality with our intraoral digital imaging scanner. delivers 2D and 3D images in high resolution and in true color. Colored 3D scans allow practitioners to easily define the margin lines and identify the differences between natural tooth structure and existing restorations. This makes restoration planning more accurate for practitioners. Additionally, true color images help patients visualize their cases. In addition to 3D intraoral scanning, we can also acquire high resolution 1024 x 768 2D clinical images with true color.
