Why is Dental Technology Important?
Technology has transformed almost every aspect of our daily life in the last two decades. When is the last time you used a phonebook? For that matter, when is the last time you used a landline phone? Keeping up with the innovations in dental technology has allowed the Dental Excellence team to offer exceptional quality dentistry services in complete comfort. Even the most advanced dental treatments are faster, safer, and more comfortable thanks to the use of state-of-the-art technologies. When it comes to complex dentistry treatments like dental implant supported tooth replacement, the use of technology is essential. Technology allows us to precisely plan every aspect of your dental implant tooth replacement plan and deliver flawless results in a shorter timeline using even higher quality materials.
Digital dentistry allows us to seamlessly incorporate all aspects of your dental implant tooth replacement plan. This may include digital photos of your smile, traditional two dimensional and comprehensive 3D x-rays, and impressions of your prepared teeth. In addition to being immediately viewable on our chairside computer monitors allowing you to see and better understand your treatment plan, we can also instantly transfer these digital images to our skilled dental lab team, so the skilled lab technicians can start creating dental restorations right away.
CT Cone Beam Technology
In order to give us the most accurate image of your full oral health and function, we use a 3D CT cone beam scanner. This advanced digital x-ray technology shows a 360-degree view of an individual tooth, part of the mouth, or the full jaw and skull bone as necessary. This allows us to carefully plan your dental implant treatment to avoid nerve tissue and utilize the naturally denser parts of the jawbone to provide support for your implant posts.
Using our 3D scan and specialized computer software, we can create surgical guides. These tools ensure that we precisely position your implant posts. On the day of your implant placement procedure, the guides are placed in the mouth, and we simply need to carefully position the implant posts according to our precise plan.
