Our offices at Innovative Oral Surgery & Dental Implants are equipped with advanced CBCT scanning and digital imaging technology. With these tools, our oral surgeons can better detect hidden oral health conditions, create detailed treatment plans, and perform surgery with great precision.
With the latest dental technology and techniques available, we can place dental implants for patients who have previously been told they do not qualify for implant treatment. In addition to our implant placement capabilities, each of our surgical suites are equipped with the latest medical technology to ensure your health and safety.
Benefits of 3D Scanning and Oral Surgery
With access to state-of-the-art technology, we can accurately treat and manage more complex conditions and design care plans that map out every detail of treatment. With detailed digital images of the mouth and face, our surgeons can place dental implants with great precision and help more patients qualify for restorative oral surgery.
3D CBCT imaging benefits our surgeons and our patients in many ways, including:
- 3D scans provide more information than traditional 2D X-rays.
- We can quickly share digital files with your general dentist, orthodontist, and other members of your care team.
- It takes only seconds to complete a digital scan.
- No putty molds are required.
Our team will likely take 3D scans during your first visit to one of our offices. Then, your oral surgeon will examine the images and create a personalized treatment plan.
What Procedures Are 3D Scans Used For?
In oral and maxillofacial surgery, it’s important that your surgeon has a clear understanding of your facial anatomy. This includes facial bones, soft tissues, and the location of facial nerves. 3D scans are an invaluable tool used in nearly every type of oral surgery procedure, including dental implant placement, orthognathic surgery, treatment for facial trauma, assessing the airways for sleep apnea cases, determining the size of wisdom teeth, and much more.
Thanks to this technology, we can produce better experiences and outcomes for our patients with the highest level of surgical precision. We will always make sure it is safe to take a 3D scan prior to doing so. Because children are more sensitive to radiation, we only perform 3D scans for younger patients when it is absolutely necessary.
