Dental implants can enhance your oral health and improve the appearance of your teeth, but they're not a simple procedure. A CT scan enables your dentist to reshape your mouth more accurately and expertly than ever, providing implants that perfectly accommodate the precise structures of your mouth.
When considering implant surgery, it's important to determine the width and density of the bony ridge and the exact placement of the alveolar nerve. CT scanning makes both of these possible to a much greater degree than X-rays or other forms of diagnosis.
CT scans are different from dental X-rays. X-rays provide only a two-dimensional representation of the teeth, jaws, and gums. This is helpful in many ways, but it does not provide any information about the width and density of bone structures, nor is it always entirely accurate in displaying nerve position. A CT scan provides a comprehensive, three-dimensional view of the mouth that enables dentists to identify trouble spots and provide the best implants for the patient’s needs.
CT scans used to be provided by radiology clinics at a high cost - and inconvenience - to the patients who needed them. Today, with cone beam CT scanning, we provide the safest and most reliable CT scans right here in our offices. The radiation dosage is less than that of conventional X-rays, and your dentist will be able to collect all the information he needs to perform your dental implant surgery with care and precision.
