Advanced Imaging and Technology
Precision Implant Placement
The combination of CAT scans & advanced software for precisely planning the implant placement, our ability to place a dental implant safely and successfully has reached a new level.
Our technology allows us to ensure that every possible precaution has been made to reduce the risk of involvement of the nerves of the lower jaw, and the sinuses and nose in the upper jaw. It also benefits in less chair time and the possibility of complications.
Cone Beam CAT Scans
CBCT Scans provide Dr. Grogan with a detailed view of the anatomy of your jaw and allow him to diagnose and plan with accuracy. In the past, patients would have to visit a hospital or outpatient facility to obtain a three dimensional x-ray to fully evaluate the structures.
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.
Implant Planning Software
To view and plan for your appointment, we take the time to accurately plan the implant and simulate the placement of your dental implant using our software. This software is one of the many steps we take to ensure success of your dental implant.
