Diagnostics and treatments in the dental industry have advanced over the years, offering excellent results due to the latest technology that is now available. Our dental team at Scharrington Dental is working hard to stay up-to-date with modern technology, such as dental imaging to improve your experience and outcome from the treatment. Here is an overview of the technology that is available in our office:
Precision Implant Dentistry
Advanced dental technology ensures accuracy when dental implants are placed for a patient. These implants are dental prosthetics that imitate the natural design of the tooth, with a post that acts as the root of the tooth. Quality imaging improves the precision when the post is placed. When this technology is used, the success rate can be as high as 95%.
Cone Beam CT
This specialized x-ray equipment can be used when basic x-rays aren’t sufficient. This technology allows our dental team to obtain 3D images that include not only your teeth, but also bone, nerve pathways, and soft tissues.
Accurate dental imaging is important so that your mouth can be examined in a detailed way. An intraoral camera looks like an oversized pen, and it has a camera attached to the end of the tool that can be used to obtain high-resolution images of the patient’s mouth.
The In2Guide technology offers tools that can be used to create an accurate simulation of your mouth, including the nerve locations and structure. This information is used to create a custom surgical plan that is used when placing dental implants. A personalized surgical template is created to manage both the angle and depth control for the implant positioning.
Quality digital imaging is essential to optimize the treatment plan for each patient. We use a variety of tools to obtain detailed images of your teeth and gums. Then, these images are used to create a custom dental plan to optimize your oral health and the appearance of your smile.
