Digital Dentistry is a reality when it comes to dental implant treatments. Precise implant size, implant position, and the corresponding final restorations can all be preplanned using sophisticated computer softwares. Advanced planning also allows us to fabricate actual surgical guides which direct the exact locations for implant placement: The jaw is evaluated in multiple dimensions. Digital Technology allows us to take the guess work out of implant dentistry, and helps make the treatment outcome more predictable and safe.
The image below illustrates an actual patient case in our office. By starting with a 3D Cone Beam scan we were able to determine what kind of restorations can be done, and where to place the implants without risks to the nerves and arteries in the patient's jaw.
