At Amherst Village Dental, technology plays an integral part in the entire dental implant process–from diagnosis and treatment planning through the placement of your implants. Using the latest technology is just another way Dr. Ang and his team make your dental care as convenient, efficient, and effective as possible. Learn how you’ll benefit from our advanced technology throughout the dental implant process.
3D Imaging With CBCT
CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) is a specially designed x-ray machine used to create high-quality 3D images of your mouth. Our Carestream CBCT scanner produces detailed images that give Dr. Ang a full 360-degree picture of your entire mouth that shows where the teeth, gums, nerves, and bones are in relation to each other.
With this 3D model, Dr. Ang determines the exact position, angle, and depth for your dental implant to create a precise treatment plan. This means you’ll spend less time in the treatment chair and experience a superior outcome.
Digital X-Rays with Kodak
Digital x-rays are easier and quicker than traditional methods. Not only do they give Dr. Ang an instant image that shows a full view of your mouth and jaw, but they also produce much less radiation than older x-ray methods so they’re healthier for you. With the latest in oral healthcare digital software, these digital x-rays are used to plan your dental implant treatment and diagnose any potential issues.
