Pasadena, Texas Implant Dentist Dr. Nugent believes that advanced dental technology helps him deliver better dental care. Dr. Nugent is one of a few general dentists to invest in a cone beam 3D x-ray machine. To support a higher level of patient care, Dr. Nugent utilizes the Galileos 3D cone beam imaging for diagnosis and treatment.
The 3D scans provide an advanced and detailed look at existing teeth, bone, nerves and sinuses. The image provides a detailed three-dimensional and cross-sectional views, which provide Dr. Nugent diagnostic information that is not available with conventional dental x-rays
Cone Beam images used to evaluate:
- The quality, width, shape, and density of the existing bone.
- Bone levels where the dental implants will be placed.
- The proper treatment approach for each individual patient.
- The precise placement of the dental implants.
- The proper diameter and length of the dental implants.
- Areas of anatomical significance to avoid like sinuses and nerves.
The two biggest advantages of Cone Beam 3D scans are 1) Better diagnostic information 2) Ability to “digitally” place the implants to evaluate for function and fit.
Using technology to deliver predictable implant dentistry is amazing. Dr. Nugent wants patients to have an easy dental experience
From the 3D xrays, Dr. Nugent can digitally perform your dental implant surgery. Dr. Nugent will place the digital dental implant into the bone and evaluate the positioning and angle. Once satisfied, Dr. Nugent will create a surgical guide that he will print on he 3D printer. The surgical guide allows for faster, quicker, safer, more accurate and less painful implant placement.
