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.

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