Digital 3D X-Rays & Cone Beam CT
Utilizing the most advanced dental technology is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient treatment options available, we employ only the most advanced digital 3D X-ray technology in our office.
Digital 3D X-rays provide several advanced imaging options designed to save time, provide clearer dental images, and expose patients to less radiation than traditional X-ray technology.
Computer Aided Implant Surgery
Implant surgery also relies heavily on our 3D X-ray and Cone Beam CT machine. The rendering this machine makes is a full three-dimensional scan of your jaw and sinuses. This gives Dr. Heller a clear view of your mouth structure from any angle. He can then evaluate your exact needs and make a customized treatment plan for your implant without all of the poking and prodding typically needed.
The 3D scan is also used within specialty software to plan out your implant surgery virtually. The entire surgery is even done in a virtual trial run to ensure it will complete safely and smoothly. This alleviates the risk of errors and allows the procedure to go more quickly once its being performed. The best part about this method of implant planning is the surgery is less invasive making for quicker and more comfortable healing times with much less swelling.
Our office is focused on making your dental experience as comfortable as possible. At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
