Digital Cone Beam CT Scanning

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. Using the imaging technology, we can not only more accurately plan your placement procedure, but also create a digital guide to help ensure optimal accuracy and efficiency during your procedure.

Using CT Scans for Guided 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.
