Major Advance in Dental Implant Technology


For a number of decades, dental implants have been widely regarded as the best method for repairing or replacing damaged, broken or missing teeth. Before fitting implants, the dentist would examine the extent of damage and the best solution available by means of an oral examination and X-rays.

Now, thanks to advances in radiography technology, it is possible for a dentist to examine the teeth and jawbone in three dimensions using cone beam computed tomography or CBCT. This system uses a cone-shaped beam and delivers far more precise details and measurements than the fan-shaped light source used for X-rays.

Not only does CBCT provide more accurate information but it also has other advantages over X-rays as:

– Radiation exposure is reduced

– Technology is easy to use

– Healing times are shorter

Healing time is reduced as the dentist can now more accurately measure the size and thickness of your dental implant before the surgery — and this means less cutting of the gums and soft tissue. This approach also significantly increases the success rate of dental implant surgery and reduces the risk of infection or rejection.
