At Wenatchee Dental Arts, Dr. Divis and his team have a clear advantage over many other offices when it comes to implant dentistry. Wenatchee Dental Arts has a new type of dental imaging device call a Cone Beam Computerized Tomograph or CBCT. It produces an image similar to a medical CT scan with 1/10 to 1/20 the radiation exposure for the patient. In combination with specialized computer software, accurate images of the patient's facial structures including the jaws and teeth are created. The software is used to allow Dr. Divis to visualize these structures in great detail and virtually place implants on the computer screen before surgery. This is a distinct advantage because critical structures such as nerves, major blood vessels, sinuses and so forth can be seen in relation to the planned implant. Different sized implants can be virtually trial fit to identify the best choice in implant and its position. Furthermore, as can be seen above, restorations can be carefully planned in advance to assure the best outcome. But thats not all. Using the computerized plan, a surgical guide can be made to place the implant just how it was planned.
CBCT images are also useful in other situations such as implant placement to firmly hold dentures in place. In can be used to identify cracks in teeth, dental abscess, Position of wisdom teeth or any tooth planned for extraction. CBCT can help orthodontists treatment plan tooth movement and locate impacted teeth. The need for bone grafting prior to or in conjunction with implant placement can also be assessed.
