When you have a dental implant placed, you want to be assured that you are being treated in a manner that represents the very best care available, along with being helped by the state-of-the-art when it comes to equipment for both diagnosis and performing the procedure. Here at Cosmetic & Implant Dental Associates, our Rockland County dentist is pleased to provide all of that, which includes dental CT scan.
Putting in a dental implant is a surgical procedure. The post is made of titanium, and it acts as a replacement for the root you used to have. Your jaw holds it by growing around it and fusing with it. There is, of course, delicate and intricate bone tissue and nerves beneath your gums, and it is essential that our Rockland County dentist knows exactly where everything is so that your post can be put in with the utmost of efficiency and comfort, and without any complications. X-rays only show a basic image, and that simply is not sufficient. However, with dental CT scans, our Rockland County dentist can see a full, three dimensional (3D) picture of what your jaw looks like so that the procedure can be performed optimally. Another advantage of dental CT scans is that all it takes is a single image to get all of the important information. That means less fuss for you, unlike with x-rays that would require multiple images. Dental CT scans provide more vivid pictures of higher quality. There is no pain and no discomfort involved. And there are no side effects to be concerned about.
It is our goal to ensure that your dental implants are done properly and with the highest degree of accuracy. And we are always utilizing the state-of-the-art technology to make that goal a reality. Feel assured that when you come in, you are getting the best possible care. Call us Rockland County dentist now to arrange an appointment.
