At Stoner Periodontic Specialists, we use the latest technology to place precise and esthetic dental implants for our patients in Columbus, Ohio.
Dental cone beam imaging is the latest dental implant technology to be introduced to dentistry. Dental cone beam imaging provides us with more accurate information and 10 times less radiation to the patient than the machines traditionally used. This technology allows us to examine, diagnose and plan dental implant treatment with a level of precision not possible in the past. This more exact approach means fewer complications, less invasive therapy and quicker healing times for the patient.
Precise dental implant placement is critical in order to provide the patient the most esthetic and functional form of tooth replacement. The 3D representation of the jaw that dental cone beam imaging provides allows our dental implant treatment team to work with an exact replica of each patient’s jawbone and gum tissue when choosing the size, location and angulation of the dental implant. Any procedures required to prepare the site for implants can be performed “virtually” on the computer using the dental cone beam tomography.
The Academy of Osseointegration now considers dental cone beam technology “the standard of care” for dental implant procedures. In fact, The American Board of Periodontology and American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons advises the use of exact imaging and surgical guides for dental implant placement.
We are happy to follow this standard of care for our dental implant patients in Columbus, Ohio!
