Benefits of 3D Planning for Dental Implants
The improvements start from the very first stages of the treatment process: imaging. Normal digital dental x-rays are only capable of providing a relatively blurry, low-resolution image of the teeth and jaw that often warps and distorts at various points in the image. A skilled doctor can use these images to properly plan treatment, but it’s still less than ideal.
The Sirona System ushers in a new era in dental imaging. Instead of the flat, blurry, warped images of digital dental x-rays, the Sirona machine can create a precise, high-fidelity, 3D computer model of the teeth, jaw, and entire skull. We can see every tooth, root, and bone in sharp focus down to the last detail – giving Dr. Skalnik a new level of control in planning treatment.
Furthermore, we can use the software to visualize how your smile will look when treatment is finished. The software is capable of rendering a simulated 3D model of your smile with the new implant in place, allowing us to provide treatment that’s powerful and predictable.
Finally, the Sirona System makes the placement procedure easier and more routine than ever. Using the system, we can create a custom-fabricated surgical guide that’s designed specifically to your mouth and ensures the implant is placed at the exact right location and angle. This takes the stress out of the surgery, allowing for unparalleled confidence in a successful procedure.
