CT Cone Beam Scanning for Fast Dental Implants
POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 25, 2014 AT 4:25 PM by Dr. Mark Stein
Traditional dental implants once involved an unfortunate and inconvenient wait between the tooth extraction and implantations stages of dental implant surgery. Our oral surgeon, Dr. Mark Stein, however, offers the most advanced techniques in dental surgery, and can literally bridge the gap between extraction and implantation. New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery offers same-day dental implant placement using CT Cone Beam scanning for imaging.
Dr. Mark Stein is one of a few New York oral surgeons to offer Cone Beam scanning in-office, allowing for immediate dental implant placement. This CT scan system accesses the jaw to help plan for surgical implants. The CT machine emits x-ray beams in the shape of a cone, rotating around the patient's head. Helping to visualize the facial structure, New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery's Cone Beam scanning takes hundreds of images to obtain a 3D image of your jaw. This provides Dr. Stein with a clear evaluation of bone density in the area of the decayed tooth. Dr. Stein then uses the information produced by the CT scan to design the shape and size of your customized dental implant before tooth extraction. On the day of extraction, Dr. Stein has a custom designed dental implant ready for immediate placement.
Immediate dental implant placement is a revolutionary procedure offered by very few oral surgeons. The CT cone beam scanning system provides our oral surgeon with precise imaging to virtually design the implant and its exact placement. Call our oral surgery center today, so you can experience tooth extraction and dental implant placement all in one day! Dr. Stein and our staff at New York Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Center welcome any questions you may have about immediate dental implant placement.
