Advanced 3D Dental Imaging for Implants

3D Imaging for Precision Implant Placement

In addition to Dr. Carter's advanced education and training, we also utilize the most state of the art dental and facial imaging equipment available. This helps us ensure optimal success for every implant procedure.

Cone Beam CT Scans

A key to the safety and success of complex dental surgery is advanced radiography. Cone beam digital CT scanning allows us to take 3-Dimensional, low radiation, high resolution CT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors.

Cone beam imaging is ideal for patient comfort. It offers an "open-environment" design that reduces anxiety, and images can be taken in as little as 8.5 seconds, limiting discomfort and exposure to radiation.

Precision Implant Placement

Advanced radiography is integral to dental implant safety and success. A CT scan ensures that every possible precaution has been made to reduce the risk of involvement of the nerves in the lower jaw, and the sinuses and nose in the upper jaw. This helps to reduce chair time and the possibility of complications. Until recently, CT scans were only done in hospitals or medical facilities.
