Latest Dental Technologies CT Scanning
Contemporary Implantology is pleased to offer our patients with state of the art 3D CT Scans for implant diagnosis and treatment planning. With 3D CT Scans, Dr. Shere can provide more accurate and predictable results along with greatly enhanced safety.
What Is A 3D CT Scan?
A CT Scan shows, in high resolution and unparalleled detail, structures not visible with traditional X-rays. With a 3D CT scan, Dr. Shere can assess your case, determine if you're eligible for dental implants, determine whether bone grafting will be necessary and plan precisely where to place the implants.
These scans make implant placement more efficient and predictable while dramatically reducing the time a patient spends in the dental chair.
CT Scans provide both three dimensional and cross section views that are much more accurate than traditional 2 dimensional X-rays. These 3D computerized images provide detailed views of the facial structures that enable Dr. Shere to determine the quantity and quality of bone as well as bone density where the implants will be placed. Vital structures such as nerves and sinuses are precisely located to add a great measure of safety not offered with traditional X-rays.
With this information, we can determine the proper treatment approach for each individual patient, including the correct implant type, size and position for optimal implant placement.
