For those missing teeth, everyday life can change significantly. It can become harder to chew and speak clearly. Tooth loss can also change your facial shape and weaken your jawbone! Thankfully, there are great tooth replacement options like dental implants. At our office, we use 3D cone beam technology. How does this help us make perfect implants?
How 3D Cone Beam Technology Works
3D cone beam technology lets us create detailed, 3D images of your mouth. The scanner rotates around your head and captures high-resolution images of your teeth, jaw, and facial structure. The technology is useful for diagnosing dental issues and developing dental implant treatment plans! With the scans, we can check the density of your jawbone, see the placement of vessels and nerves, and identify the precise shape of where your implant will go. This information helps us spot problems and create a treatment plan with the best chance of success.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
You know how we create dental implants, but why are they such a great option? They are the only permanent tooth replacement option. This is because the implant, which is a tiny titanium screw, replaces the missing tooth root. It’s placed in your jawbone, where it fuses to the bone as you heal from surgery. While other tooth replacement options don’t preserve your jawbone, an implant ensures the jawbone is getting stimulation and staying strong. Once you’ve healed, we top the implant with an artificial tooth, like a crown. Dental implants also feel the most like a natural tooth and don’t require special care beyond brushing, flossing, and routine visits to the dentist.
