Your Yuma dentist now offers more efficient and accurate dental implant procedures along with the most precise radiographic diagnostic tool available in dental offices.
Are you dealing with tooth loss and currently weighing your options? If so, then you’ve probably been considering dental implants. Dental implants are a great, long-term solution for replacing one or several missing teeth. Dental implants are the only treatment that not only mimics that of a real tooth but they also preserve facial structure and jaw bone health, which other tooth loss solutions can’t. And now with our very own 3D Cone Beam Imaging Technology, we are now able to offer a more precise dental implant procedure.
3D Imaging provides data for:
Dental Implants, Wisdom tooth extractions, Tooth Impactions, TMJ Treatment, Airway assessment, and sleep apnea, full facial and 3D jaw images
About 3D Cone Beam Dental Imaging
This relatively new dental imaging technology is changing the way dentists can view structures within the mouth. In the past, dentists only had 2D images to look at for to diagnose dental conditions and issues; however, with the use of 3D technology we are better able to visualize certain parts of the mouth and provide a better diagnose and treatment plan.
3D cone beam imaging similarly uses radiation to other radio imaging technologies, except that these images can then be made into 3D models which can be altered and used by computer software to help dentists with dental implants, orthodontics, TMJ surgeries, and other diagnostic procedures.
3D Imaging and Dental Implants
Since your Yuma dentist, Dr. Sam Carroll, has the latest 3D cone beam technology, we are now able to create an even more effective implant treatment plan within a matter of minutes. This technology allows us to determine the nerve canals, as well as figure out the dimensions of the bones to determine the best placement of your implant. This imaging technology also makes the procedure safer, more precise and less invasive. Furthermore, this imaging also saves our patients time during their consultation since 3D images help our patients to be better able to visualize their implant procedure.
