Our 3D CBCT imaging system allows us to precisely plan each of our implant cases. We can clearly see the dimensions and shape of the area of surgery, and can create a guide ensure proper placement. Even in tight spaces, or difficult regions - we know we're going to have successful placement because we can see and plan everything ahead of time. This is quickly becoming the standard of care for dental implants. If you're going to a doctor for an implant, make sure they have 3D imaging capabilities!
For this case, we used the CBCT to ensure the surgical area had completely healed after a badly infected tooth was extracted. A surgical guide was used for implant placement, which ensured accuracy and safety. We were able to take a low-dose CBCT image following surgery to confirm the implant was exactly where it was meant to be.
