Are you unhappy with missing or damaged teeth that keep you from leading your best life? Dental implants are a common solution to dental struggles that not only improve the function of your teeth but the appearance, as well.
Implant Placements and Restorations
Patients who benefit from implants include those who:
- Desire a permanent solution and alternative to dentures
- Are unable to enjoy certain foods or speak freely due to missing teeth
- Want a natural tooth look and feel
Dental implants act like a root that support a new tooth or loose denture. When you have only one missing tooth, with an implant you only replace the one tooth rather than involving adjacent teeth as you would with a bridge.
Implants are durable, and are meant to last a lifetime with proper care. If you want the look and function of natural teeth, contact us to discuss how implants can benefit you.
Image Processing Technology
We’re taking imaging to a whole new level with the Carestream Dental CS 8100 3D CT Scanner!
This miracle machine blends 2D panoramic technology and CBCT imaging with 3D model scanning to create the most precise dental images possible. The ultra-high-resolution images are perfect for planning dental treatments like implants.
Using the latest in image processing technology, the CS 8100 3D scanner takes crystal clear panoramic scans of your mouth and teeth and allows us to see your mouth from multiple angles in 2D and 3D, producing images that can be enlarged, rotated, and manipulated without sacrificing any details. Additionally, special Metal Artifact Reduction technology prevents existing metal dental work from distorting the images. This means even more accuracy in planning precisely where your implants will go and how they will be inserted. What’s more, the machine has a low-dose mode, which produces superior-quality images at lower doses of radiation than typical panoramic scanners, making it safer for our patients. It’s also adjustable to suit every patient and designed to take images quickly, in a little as 3 seconds.
The CS 8100 3D CT Scanner is truly amazing!
