Computer-Guided Placement for Dental Implants in Orlando
Using the latest technology is important for ensuring success in any medical procedure -- and that is perhaps especially true when it comes to dental implants. This complex treatment requires an expert approach and state-of-the-art tools and technology for maximizing quality and ensuring long-lasting results. One of the advanced tools Dr. Russo uses to increase success for implant procedures is the Carestream 8100. Keep reading to learn more about how it works and why using it can dramatically improve your dental implant procedure.
What Is Computer Guided Implant Placement?
Computer guided implant placement helps Dr. Russo to provide more accurate and precise dental implant placement procedures. The Carestream 8100 provides a crystal clear 3D image of your oral anatomy that is ready within seconds, and allows for the viewing of special interest areas from every angle with one-to-one accuracy.
Treatment planning is far more successful with this state-of-the-art technology. Having such a detailed look at the jaw facilitates diagnosing the need for bone grafting before the implant placement. And, with the image provided by the Carestream 8100, Dr. Russo can then create a digital guide for placing your dental implants to set you up with a properly functioning tooth replacement that provides maximum longevity.
Here is how it works, in a little more detail:
- First, the 3D scans are captured in-office. The patient stands comfortably as the scanner rotates fully around the head. The captured information is then made available for Dr. Russo to view on a screen shortly after.
- A detailed, 3D model is ready for use. The implants can be placed virtually first, sort of like a test-run to ensure optimal length, width, and positioning for maximum success and precision.
- The digital model is converted into a surgical guide to be used for the actual implant placement.
Who Is Computer Guided Implant Placement Good For?
Not everyone undergoing a dental implant procedure will need to have a computer-guided procedure. This technology is often reserved for patients who have more complex needs, like those with significant tissue depletion or those undergoing a full mouth reconstruction. Conventional procedures are often possible without computer-guided placement. Dr. Russo will discuss the technology required for your implant procedure during a consultation.
