Our office utilizes the latest technology, incorporating 3 dimensional cone beam scanning, offering more information for proper planning of advanced bone grafting and implant surgeries.

  

Traditional 2 dimensional radiographs


Digital radiographs show incredible detail and minimize radiation exposure.

However, the exact location of the mandibular nerve is not very clear in this radiograph.

 

A digital panorex is often utilized in conjunction with traditional dental radiographs, providing more information on anatomy - sinus, mandibular nerve, location of wisdom teeth, etc.

However, we are unable to visualize depth (or thickness) of bone, lesions, exact positions of teeth

 

 

 

The top right bridge has failed and was slated for extraction.  A lateral window sinus graft was performed and allowed to heal for 6 mos.

 Following healing, a 3D scan was taken to evaluate: bone height (red line) as well as bone thickness.  Evaluation shows adequate bone volume to place an implant fixture.
