Advanced Dental Implant Planning

Pasadena, Deer Park Advanced Dental Implant Dentistry:

No one would consider getting knee or hip replacement surgery without an MRI or a CT scan. Similarly, Dr. Nugent uses 3D digital conebeam (CBCT) technology to treat every dental implant case. This advanced technology is normally found in hospitals and very rarely in a dental office. However, Dr. Nugent wants the best technology possible for his patients. The CBCT scan process allows Dr. Nugent to better survey bone density and define the correct treatment method for each patient. The CBCT provides a detailed 3D image of the mouth and jaw that is much more detailed than traditional dental x-rays. The CBCT delivers much better information for a higher standard of care.

Advantages of CBCT Scans:

  • Identify crucial anatomical structures that must be avoided in implant surgery
  • Determine the precise placement, angulation and depth of dental implants
  • Decide the proper type and size of the implants
  • Less radiation compared to a medical CT Scan
  • Examine cross sections of a patient’s bone structure to analyze the quality, density and volume, of the jawbone.
