Diagnostic & Treatment Planning Technology

Diagnosis and treatment planning is the key to successful treatment in all dental procedures and especially in dental implants. With all dental implants placements the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center uses a CT scan, diagnostic models to determine exact tooth position and design of the restoration and special software. In addition to these treatment plans, the Dental Implant Aesthetic Center offers a proper medical and dental history and clinical evaluation. Our software interfaces the CT scan data which allows precise diagnosis and treatment planning for the implant placement. With this information we can perform procedures not available in a non specialty supported practice.

Surgical Placement of Implants
CT Scans Assisting Surgical Placement of Implants
Most X-Rays taken before placement of implants are panoramic x-rays. Panoramic x-rays give the doctor a 2 dimensional picture of the patient's bone structure. This allows the doctor to see only the height of the bone in the mouth and may not give a completely accurate picture of the quantity and quality of bone due to distortion from magnification. CT Scans allow for a realistic 3 dimensional image of the patient in which the doctor can see contours of the bone and the actual anatomical structure without distortion. With this 3 dimensional image the doctor can use software that will allow for virtual placements of implants. By taking these precautions before surgery, patients will have a reduced rate of complications and shorter surgeries. The Dental Implant Aesthetic Center offers the best care available with cutting edge technology to give patients the best results possible.
