Accuracy is key to successful dental implant placement.
Placing a dental implant into the jawbone and allowing it to bond firmly to form a solid foundation, is what makes this particular procedure such a successful method for replacing missing teeth. It is not simply about placing the implant though, but ensuring that this is done in the exact position necessary.
Not only will correct positioning mean that the replacement tooth will appear natural and aligned with the other teeth, but also that the implant is kept away from any nerves or blood vessels in the area. To assist us with this, we use advanced 3D scanning to determine the precise positioning for your dental implants for usage of guided placement.
3D scanning is also used to determine whether sufficient bone is available to place the implant immediately, or whether a bone graft or sinus lift is needed.
We offer a 3d scan service for patients who are not registered with us.
At 186 Park Road, Dental Practice, we use the Carestream CS 8100 3D scanner to ensure that our patients have access to top quality 3D imaging.
Offering high quality images, this scanner produces clear and accurate scans in a matter of just a few seconds. The equipment also produces minimal radiation, further protecting the safety of our patients.
For additional comfort, our scanner has an open face design which helps to put patients at ease during the scanning process. It is also suitable for patients of all sizes and for wheelchair users.
Through the use of 3D imagery taken with state of the art technology, our patients can be assured that their dental implant will be accurately placed.
