Benefits of Dental Implant Technology
Choosing a dental practice that utilizes advanced technology for dental implants comes with several benefits, including:
- Accurate and Precise Treatment Plans: With the use of sophisticated equipment like CBCT scanners, dental practitioners can get detailed and accurate images of a patient’s oral structure. This helps them develop a precise and unique treatment plan tailored to the patient’s needs.
- Faster Recovery Times: With the use of modern equipment, dental implant treatment is faster, more precise, and less invasive, which leads to shorter recovery times for patients.
- Stronger and More Durable Results: Advanced technology helps in creating more robust and durable restorations, which can last for a more extended period.
- Natural-Looking Restorations: With the use of high-grade intraoral cameras and other modern equipment, dental practitioners can create restorations that are more natural-looking and blend in seamlessly with the patient’s existing teeth.
- Shorter Dental Visits: Implant procedures can be completed more efficiently, resulting in shorter dental visits for patients.
By choosing our dental practice that utilizes the latest technology, patients can experience fast, effective, and comfortable dental implant treatment that meets their unique needs.
Dr. Hobbs uses a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner to collect detailed images of your oral structure, creating a unique treatment plan tailored to your needs. This sophisticated technology allows us to identify issues and adjust your treatment plan as needed, resulting in more accurate and effective outcomes.
The process is simple. You’ll rest your head comfortably on the machine, and in less than a minute, it’ll complete an entire scan of your smile. The benefit of a CBCT scanner is it allows us to map out your implant procedure, identify issues, and alter your treatment plan as needed.
At DentaCare Dental, we improve our patients’ experiences and maximize the effectiveness of the implant process by using digital X-rays.
Our digital X-ray technology is faster, safer, and more accurate than traditional X-rays, providing ultra-clear results that are instantly projected onto our monitors. This allows us to assess your situation in real time, making the implant process more efficient and effective.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is dental implant technology safe?
Yes, dental implant technology is safe. Advanced technology such as digital X-rays and CBCT scanners use lower radiation levels than traditional X-rays, making them safer for patients. Additionally, intraoral cameras are radiation-free.
How are digital x-rays improving dental treatment?
Digital imaging is an outstanding improvement in dentistry offering features to enhance the viewing experience, including any problem areas. Digital X-rays use low levels of radiation and are easily displayed on a computer screen for both our patients and doctors to see. X-rays are an important component of dental care due to their ability to diagnose dental decay, failing crowns and fillings, planning dental placements, and more.
Do intraoral cameras use radiation?
No! Intraoral cameras are a radiation-free piece of dental technology that we utilize at our Longview practice. We understand that radiation concerns many patients, which is why we limit how often we use technology that omits it. While traditional dental radiography exposes patients to minimal radiation levels, intraoral cameras eliminate this exposure.
What is the latest technology in dentistry?
Over the years, dentistry has significantly progressed and continues to evolve with the technology used. This means the latest technology involving treatment has evolved, too. Some of the latest technology in dentistry include digital X-rays, 3D printing, laser dentistry, and more!
