3D Dental Technology

One of the fastest growing areas in dentistry today are dental implants. Whether you need to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth, implants are the gold standard tooth replacement option in today’s dentistry.

Prior to doing an implant a workup is necessary. You need to work with a dentist who offers a 3D x-ray. 3D x-rays prior to dental implant therapies are standard of care. With the 3 dimensional x-ray we’re able to virtually do the surgery on the computer prior to performing the procedure in the patient’s mouth. This allows for us to avoid vital anatomical structures such as your maxillary sinus or nasal cavity, or blood vessels, or nerves that innervate the jaw bone. Virtual surgery allows for a much more predictable, definitive, and successful long-term outcome for our patients. The high-resolution scans allow Dr. Singh to clearly see facial anatomy, including nerves and the sinus cavity, as well as helping him to determine bone density, which aids in planning dental implant cases.
