Dental implants in South Burlington now have a 95% success rate. As the most reliable tooth replacement option, their viability is attributed to the latest innovations in dentistry. Besides the training and experience of your dentist, your new smile also relies on state-of-the-art technology. We use the CB/CT scanner throughout your entire treatment to ensure your dental implants have the foundation they need to last for decades.
Digital X-rays allow us to see more than what’s visible from the surface, such as your tooth roots and jawbone. Although the images are helpful, they are not enough when placing dental implants. A 3D cone beam scanner allows us to see what isn’t possible with an X-ray.
We’ll have a deeper picture of your oral structures to see everything in its entirety, including the soft tissues, nerve pathways, bone, teeth, and more. These crystal-clear images can be reviewed on a large screen and manipulated to view every detail of your mouth and oral structures.
The scanner has an arm that rotates completely around your head to capture multiple images from different angles. The images are then reconstructed into a single picture to view your mouth as a whole. They are then digitally combined to transform them to a 3D picture to show your dentist in South Burlington more about your craniofacial and oral health. Although the images are complex, the scan only takes a few minutes to complete.
From start to finish, we use the technology to promote the success of your dental implants.
Besides a visual examination and X-rays, a CT scan is taken to determine your candidacy for dental implants. The scan will show if there are any issues brewing beneath the surface that can compromise the success of your smile, like an infection. It also allows us to see if you need any additional treatments before placing your posts, like bone grafting or a sinus lift.
The scans allow us to pinpoint the ideal location to place your implant posts. The images integrate with computer-guided technology to ensure they are inserted correctly into your jaw. This takes the guesswork out of the process the create a secure base for your restorations.
