CT Scans and Dental Implants

July 11, 2017

Why do I need a CT scan for dental implants?

 

In life, success comes from starting with the end in mind.

 

Imagine going on a trip to long haul trip without knowing how you are going to get there, Plane or Ship? With or without stop over? How long you are planning to stay there? What will you do when you get there? Will you need any documents to enter the country? How much will it cost? What will the weather be like there? Where will you stay and what will you eat? These are some of the basic questions one would know the answers to when planning a trip, in a similar way you need certain detailed information for dental implant treatment

 

So, at Natural Smiles, our dental implant treatment starts off with a very detailed discussion and understanding of your needs and desires for your problem in order to confirm you goals. Using this information, we start with a process called diagnostic models or wax ups. This is a physical or digital mock-up of your new teeth.

Using this we then take a cone beam CT scan.

The CT scan is a 3D X-ray of your upper and lower jaw that we take at our Leicester or Corby clinic. This scan allows us to see:

 

  • The health of the teeth
  • The health of the jaw and the bone
  • We can map or highlight nerves and therefore minimise risk of nerve damage
  • The width of bone available for dental implants
  • The height of bone available for dental implants
  • The quality of bone available for dental implants
  • The position of the dental implants is planned

 

A cone beam is seen by all experience implant surgeons as a crucial step in implant dentistry.

At Natural Smiles, our level of experience and the number of implants we place means that we have our own scanner on site and therefore do not need to refer you anywhere else.

I am sure you can now appreciate the level of planning that is required to achieve excellent in dental implant care. At Natural Smiles Leicester and Natural Smiles Corby we strive for excellence in all our treatment and provide you with dental implants that not only replace missing teeth but have world class cosmetic and life-long stability.
