Dental implants are a natural-looking, proven way to rejuvenate smiles marred by missing teeth. Precise placement of the dental implant is crucial to long-term success and optimal comfort and function. Modern technology plays a crucial role in implant dentistry treatment planning. I’m Dr. Lee Fitzgerald, a leading Plano and North Dallas implant dentist. At my Dental Implant Center, I use information from cone beam digital imaging scans to precisely determine implant placement and create life-changing smiles.
Cone beam CAT scan imaging delivers comprehensive views of oral structures. An advanced computer system allows manipulation and magnification of images to hone in on a specific area and map out implant placement for optimal results. And because scanning times are short, you’re exposed to less radiation than with traditional X-ray technology.
The state-of-the-art cone beam imaging system provides unprecedented access to vital information. For example, sufficient jawbone mass is required for implant placement. The highly detailed images let me accurately measure bone mass to determine whether a bone graft or sinus graft is needed to shore up density. I can also identify structural problems that aren’t easily found during a manual or visual exam.
Every day, I help people from across the DFW Metroplex and beyond achieve beautiful, healthy smiles through modern dental implants. Technology helps us achieve our goal to deliver efficient, precision treatment for successful implant placement and a positive experience.
