The Smile in the City team is happy to announce that we now use Sirona Galileos conebeam 3D imaging technology to assess possible New York dental implants candidates. As digital technology continues to advance, our team is dedicated to providing patients with the most up-to-date systems that provide accurate, effective results. Read on to learn more about dental implants and conebeam 3D imaging.
About Dental Implants: If you are missing teeth due to decay or injury, you may be a candidate for dental implants, which are devices placed into the jawbone to support crowns, bridges and dentures. The surrounding bone eventually accepts the titanium as part of the body, bonding with the implant. However, each patient is unique, and may require a modification of the surgical technique or implant size and specifications. Because of this, we examine each patient’s dental structures to identify any potential problems or concerns. Traditional X-rays provide a flat image of teeth that often require some guesswork on the part of the implant surgeon, because traditional x-rays cannot give a 3D rendering of the dental structures. That’s why we’ve upgraded our system to utilize Sirona Galileos conebeam 3D imaging – to save time and money and to plan implants for quicker, more accurate results. Smile in the City is the third dental office in New York to utilize Sirona Galileos technology.
About Conebeam 3D Imaging: In contrast to traditional X-rays, conebeam 3D imaging is a quick and easy process that doesn’t require the patient to sit for extremely long periods of time. Instead, the patient can remain comfortable and relaxed for just a matter of seconds, helping to limit movement and providing clearer, more accurate results. The high-quality images lead to better diagnoses and treatment planning, and our dentists can get a clear view of the patient’s dental structure. From there, we can evaluate thickness and height of the bone to determine which implant will work best, or identify any abnormalities that might deter dental implants.
