3D X-Rays And Why They’re Essential For Dental Implants In Richmond
It’s fairly obvious to most people that in order to successfully fit dental implants in Richmond, you need an experienced and highly skilled implant dentist. However what might not be quite so obvious is that the procedure also relies heavily on having incredibly precise images of the jaw bone in 3D. These pictures or X-rays allow the surgeon to place the implant at the exact depth in the exact place.
In essence 3 dimensional X-rays takes all of the guess work out of fitting a dental implant. For instance it can tell the dentist where to place the implant so as to avoid any vital structures like nerves or arteries during insertion. In addition it can also tell the dentist the best position to place the implant so that the implant crown ends up in exactly the right position in the mouth.
So what would happen if the dentist got these wrong?
If the dentist’s positioning of the implant was just a fraction out then it could cause numbness (either temporary or permanent) if it catches on the nerve, severe haemorrhaging during surgery if it severs an artery, and finally a goofy look if the teeth end up in the wrong place.
Here at Sheen Dental we fully understand the importance of 3D imaging when fitting a dental implant. In Richmond, at our clinic the latest dental scanner produces superb high resolution pictures to enable us to get it right. As such we’ve fitted hundreds of dental implants both safely and securely.
They’re also much safer
Another point about state-of-the-art 3D dental scanners is that they use a radiation dosage that’s often many times below that of a typical hospital CT scanner. This makes them far safer to use and as such the whole procedure can be carried out right here at our Richmond clinic without subjecting the patient to high levels of radiation.
