What is Dental Technology?
Dental technology involves using advanced equipment to improve patient care. Improvements in dental imaging, computer-guided procedures, and other areas help oral surgeons provide the highest quality care.
Benefits of Technology in Dentistry
- Better Diagnostic Capability- Technology gives oral surgeons more tools to diagnose dental problems. Accurate diagnosis means that patients receive the best treatment and shortens recovery times.
- Safer Surgeries- Surgeries planned with the 3-D Cone Beam Imaging scanner and computer-guided implant technology are safer and more efficient, reducing the risk of complications.
- Improved Communication- With today's detailed imaging results, oral surgeons can easily share information and help patients understand their procedure and their oral health.
Technology We Use for Implants & Oral Surgeries
The 3-D Cone Beam Imaging scanner is a specialized X-ray machine that provides more detailed information than a standard dental or facial X-ray. The technology that powers this equipment is what doctors use to create CT scans.
The scanner uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to produce 3-D images. In just one scan, the cone beam scanner can capture bones, nerves, and teeth. The images are more precise than traditional or digital X-rays.
Computer-Guided Implant Placement
Dr. Albadawi uses 3-D Cone Beam Imaging scanner images to plan implant surgeries. He can plan accurate treatments using guided surgery software and increase safety and efficiency.
The surgeon can visualize the anatomy of teeth, bones, nerves, and nasal and sinus cavities. Knowing their precise location allows the surgeon to perform the implant surgery with a lower chance of complications.
Intraoral scanners are small, handheld devices that the surgeon can use to capture detailed images of the patient's mouth. This scanner creates accurate digital impressions without the hassle of dealing with traditional trays. The scanner's images appear on the surgeon's monitor, enabling them to share important information and explain treatment decisions.
