With the Zirkonzahn Milling Unit on-site, our lab technicians are able to manufacture the longest-lasting and most natural-looking restorations available in a surprisingly short period of time, which, of course, saves you, the patient, time and doctor visits. Further, we can make adjustments to your restoration’s shades and fit while you are in the office.
Physicians have relied on computerized axial tomography scans (CAT) for years. Today, many dentists rely on 3D imaging scans to provide them with a detailed view of the mouth and skull. 3D scans are quick and simple to perform. A Cone Beam Imaging System is at the heart of the 3D scanner. The cone beams are used to take literally hundreds of pictures of the face. These pictures are used to compile an exact 3D image of the inner mechanisms of the face and jaw. The dentist is able to zoom in on specific areas and view them from alternate angles.
3D X-ray gives us a detailed view of your teeth, gums, nerve pathways, and bone.
Using the x-rays and powerful imaging software, our team is able to analyze the results to create the perfect place plan for your implant. We calculate the optimal structural positioning of the implant based on the existing bone and safest distance from the nerves. Other benefits include:
Lower radiation dose (less than a full mouth series of intraoral film)
A quick comprehensive scan of the complete oral-maxillofacial area (14 seconds)
Immediate virtual diagnosis and treatment planning in one visit
More certainty during surgery
Easy sharing of images and diagnostic information
Trios Digital Impression Scanners
Our Trios 3 Shape Digital Impression Scanners make the process of taking impressions faster, easier, and more accurate. The process consists of a scan with a wand that allows us to highlight relevant areas that are sent to the lab for abutment and crown preparation.
The Trios 3 Digital Impression Scanners provide a more realistic scan experience in which we are able to better evaluate clinical situations through the use of natural colors and high definition photos. These features allow for better case documentation that we can easily relay to our patients.
These scanners are used in all of our office and allow us to treat more people, more effectively and with improved care. Our protocol can eliminate additional appointments that would normally be necessary, which helps take away the hassle and stress from patients having to rearrange their busy schedules. Moreover, patients will not gag on traditional impression materials!
