Surgical Guided Implants
Guided surgery provides a link between the surgeon’s plan and the actual surgery. It also has several important enhancements and advantages over conventional surgeries. First, the patient and the surgeon are better prepared for what they will encounter during the procedure. Complete information about the quality and quantity of the bone makes it possible to determine the ideal location for the implants that enhances the final esthetic outcome, while also avoiding important anatomy in the area. This translates into less complications and surgery time is often decreased. Because many surprises are eliminated by the enhanced treatment planning, treatment costs are also more predictable.
3-D Digital X-Rays
The new Prexion Excelsior system gives our periodontal practice the latest generation of state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Parsons diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides the most precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.
Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The Prexion scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.
