If you’re ready to get started on your treatment, give his office a call today!
The Benefits of the Sirona/Galileos CT
3D scanners are designed to give us a clearer picture of all of your oral structures, especially sensitive areas like your nerves. If an implant is placed without these structures in mind, it can result in permanent damage to your nerve and cause chronic numbness within that facial area. The use of a device like the Sirona/Gallileos CT scanner prevents this from occurring.
Furthermore, not only does our cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scanner provide a far more detailed image of your teeth, bone and other oral structures, but it gets it done with less radiation and more quickly than ever before.
How Our CEREC 3D Intraoral Scanner Enhances Your Treatment
Dr. Knight has been placing dental implants for a long time, which means he’s had the time to incorporate multiple technologies that improve your overall experience. When planning implant treatment, we’re also making use of the CEREC 3D Intraoral scanner. This device is typically used to capture, design and fabricate crowns, whether they are being used for your new implant or just to make a traditional dental crown. However, it also plays a major role in planning your treatment.
The CEREC 3D Intraoral camera helps us create custom surgical guides and implant abutments. Surgical guides are used to place implants with greater precision and predictability, ensuring a successful surgery. The abutments are necessary for stabilizing your restoration once it’s time to place it onto the implant post. Both are needed to create the most seamless implant placement possible.
