Revolutionising Dental Implant Treatments with our CBCT Scanners

At Perfect Pearls, we are always on the forefront of the latest technological advancements, ensuring we provide our patients with the highest standard of care. Central to our commitment is the utilisation of our cutting-edge CT scanner, particularly the Gendex CT scanner, a device specially designed for dental applications.

This advanced CT scanner, specially designed for dental use, employs Cone Beam CT (CBCT) technology to produce a detailed 3D image of your mouth. Read on to find out how we employ this state-of-the-art tech and its implications for those considering dental implants.

What are CBCT Scans?

CBCT scans are a type of X-ray equipment that produces three-dimensional images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone in a single scan. Unlike traditional X-rays, CBCT scans offer a more comprehensive view of the dental structures, allowing for precise and accurate planning and execution of dental procedures.

Understanding the Importance of Jawbone Health

The foundation of a successful dental implant is the quality and strength of the bone in your jaw. When a tooth is lost, the bone in that area can begin to diminish over time. This bone loss can pose challenges for implant placement and can even affect the final results, be it a crown, bridge, or denture.

At Perfect Pearls, we never compromise. Before proceeding with dental implant treatment, we always ensure there’s sufficient bone to support the implant. If there are concerns about bone levels, we’ve got solutions—be sure to check out our Bone Grafting information to discover how we can augment bone levels if necessary.

Benefits of Using CBCT Scans in Dental Implant Treatments

Are you concerned about bone loss? This is where our Gendex CT scanner comes into play. The benefits include:

Dental-specific design: Our Gendex CT scanner is crafted explicitly for dental applications, ensuring optimal results.

Precision imaging: With its ability to generate an accurate 3D image of your mouth, we can assess the intricacies of your bone structure and dental anatomy.

Informed planning: The scanner’s 3D imaging capability enables our implant specialists to meticulously plan the best placement for dental implants and the subsequent prosthetic.

Avoiding implant failures: With such precise imaging, we can preemptively address potential issues, significantly reducing the risk of implant failures.

Why Digital Dentistry Matters

The world is moving at a fast-paced digital evolution, and the dental realm is no exception. Digital dentistry, characterised by tools like CBCT scans, not only enhances the dental procedure itself but also vastly improves the patient experience.

  • Digital scans can be more comfortable than traditional methods, alleviating some of the anxieties many patients feel.
  • Efficiency: With digital tools, you’ll spend less time waiting and more time enjoying their rejuvenated smiles.
  • CBCT scans expose patients to minimal radiation, ensuring safety without compromising on quality.
