How Anacapa Dental Use CT Scans To Perfect Your Implant Treatment

At Anacapa Dental Art Institute, it’s really important to us to provide our clients with the latest treatments and modern technology, which can improve the standard of care and range of services we provide. We are very proud to have a CT scanner on-site and we strongly believe that investing in technology enables us to perfect your treatment.

Is it imperative to take CT scans for all of our dental implant patients? Somebody might say “case selection”, but what does this mean?

For example you might want to place dental implants on posterior side of mandible of a patient. The OPG might suggest adequate height of bone and good distance from alveolar nerve.

What Is a CT Scan?

A CT scan, also known as CAT scan or Computerized Axial Tomography scan, is a procedure that combines hundreds of x-ray images to create 3D cross-sectional views of your body. This allows doctors to see structures such as bone, soft tissues, and blood vessels at many different angles for better diagnosis and treatment plans.

Our main use for CT scans is planning dental implant treatment. We carry out scans to ascertain if a patient is a good candidate for implants, and we also use the images to plan treatment with optimum precision. For implant treatment to be successful, it’s very important that the bone in the jaw is strong and dense enough to support the implant. If this isn’t the case, conventional implants may not be the best solution.

A diagnostic CT scan is also vital for the accurate, precise, and safe placement of the implant itself with as few complications as possible. Essentially, a CT scan before a dental implant procedure will significantly improve the likelihood of a seamless, successful procedure and a smooth recovery thereafter.

How Will I Benefit from CT-Guided Implant Placement?

At Anacapa Dental Art Institute we always use the CT-guided implant placement procedure because it provides several benefits to the patient. These include:

  • minimally invasive surgical techniques
  • reduced treatment and recovery time
  • minimized complications
  • more successful placement and enhanced end results

Using CT scans for guidance is the best option for dental implant placement.
