Dental Implant Imaging

Millions of people world wide have partial or complete edentulism. Dentures do not fully compensate patients adequately for tooth loss cosmetically or functionally. To address these issues dental implants are the accepted alternative.

Dentists and oral surgeons will often initially asses their patients with x-ray. Dental CT programs offer more detailed and accurate information providing comprehensive preoperative assessment.

Prior to performing this procedure, analysis of the bone of the mandible and maxilla is required in order to plan the appropriate implant procedure and limit surgical complications.

The scanner allows for planning of dental implants by reconstructing the area of interest, identifying bone volume and vital nerves that need to be avoided.

The scan is performed within 5 minutes, and the images are evaluated on a specialised software program. The images are archived to CD for the clinicians convenience.
