3D ConeBeam Imaging
It’s fast, simple and completely painless – patients just sit in a chair for a single 10-second scan. And, from that scan, Dr.Kim can quickly see computer-generated views of the bones of the jaw, around the teeth, and other details from any angle, in 3D and in color!
How Is ConeBeam Different from Ordinary Dental X-rays?
Typical dental x-rays just focus on your teeth, and for each x-ray picture, you need one exposure. So it would take many exposures to even begin to compare to a single 3D ConeBeam scan. But 3D ConeBeam Imaging shows much more than simple “flat” x-rays. This new technology provides more complete visual information to study your case from every angle.
Why Do I Need It?
Whether you’re just beginning treatment or evaluating the results, 3D ConeBeam x-ray images give your doctors more of the high quality, detailed visual information they want for diagnosis and planning. More complete information is a vital key to improved patient care. And for you, it can mean more confidence and satisfaction in your treatment.
What To Expect After Dental Implant Surgery
Not everyone is a candidate for a dental implant, however. For a successful implant to take hold, a candidate must have proper bone density and have a strong immune system. In all cases, dental implants require strict oral hygiene.
Surgery is necessary to prepare the area for an implant and place the implant in the mouth. Following the procedure, a period of time is required for the implant to take hold and for bone tissue to build up and anchor the device. In some cases, metal posts are inserted into the implant during a follow-up procedure to connect the tooth.
Because implants require surgery, patients are administered anesthesia and, if necessary, antibiotics to stave off infection following the procedure.
Like any restoration, implants require diligent oral hygiene and proper care to ensure they last a long time.
