3D CT scans allow the surgeon and restorative dentist to optimally plan and place dental implants. Their uses and benefits are present throughout the continuum of care from diagnosis to treatment to post-op examinations and include:

  • Locate and determine the distance to vital anatomic structures
  • Measure alveolar bone width and visualize bone contours
  • Determine if a bone graft or sinus lift is needed
  • Select the most suitable implant size and type
  • Optimize the implant location and angulation
  • Increased case acceptance
  • Reduced surgery time
  • Build patient confidence

And with the use of guided implant placement based on 3D CT scans, all the above benefits are enhanced to the point that the surgeon can approach each case with the confidence that comes from knowing that the best available image data and technology have been used to ensure success.
