Offering our patients treatment with precision and accuracy means we employ advanced technology. From performing a detailed dental exam to guiding the placement of dental implants, we can use advanced CT scanning technology! In today’s blog, your Newhall, CA, dentist explains how we treat your smile with advanced CT scanning.

Examining and Diagnosing Your Smile

The ability to clearly see your teeth and oral structures is an essential part of preventive dental care and diagnostic services. It’s also vital to planning certain treatments, such as the placement of dental implants. CT, which stands for computerized tomography, is the process of creating highly detailed 3D images of your teeth, teeth roots, jawbone, and other oral structures. We gather detailed images to both identify problems and plan their solutions. Because we have the capacity to capture vivid 3D images, we can reliably capture the kinds of details needed to provide fantastic care!

Planning Dental Implant Placement

Placing dental implants is a highly precise process. Each post must not only be placed in the optimal spot, but also be angled to absorb a maximum amount of your bite pressure. Ensuring that your implant post is placed correctly is vital to the success of your procedure, which is why we prefer utilizing guided implant surgery with the help of advanced CT scanning. The 3D digital model allows us to thoroughly analyze the different aspects of your bite and determine the optimal placement and angle for each post. Then, the guide will help your oral health expert place the implant posts with unmatched accuracy.
