Hyde Park Dental Arts offers dental implants using the latest in dental technology
In the past, when a patient lost a tooth, a replacement could only be made with a removable partial denture or a cemented bridge. Now there is a better alternative which is known as a dental implant. Dental implants are made of titanium and are placed directly into the bone where the patient has lost a tooth. Titanium has a property that allows it to integrate with bone and thus provide the patient with a strong new tooth that he or she can use to bite and smile. Implants can also be used to stabilize loose dentures. Instead of resting on the gums, the denture can be made to connect with two to four implants and vastly improve a patients comfort and quality of life. Technology plays an important role in the placement of dental implants. In our office, we use a three dimensional x-ray machine known as a CBCT scanner. This machine takes a three dimensional picture of a persons jaw which allows us to know exactly where to position an implant. This provides our patients excellent results that can last a lifetime!
PreXion 3D is a revolutionary X-ray system that provides high-resolution solutions in dental imaging. Powered by superior image reconstruction and volumetric image rendering technology, PreXion 3D provides sharper images with more information than the traditional dental X-ray unit. It's the ideal technology specialists performing implants. Prexion 3D is an open-environment scan taken in a seated position, with scanning time less than 40 seconds, and significantly lower radiation compared to traditional CT Scans (up to 95% less radiation). This computerized technology produces clear and extremely detailed 3-dimensional pictures of the jaws, illustrating the actual makeup of the teeth and jawbone.
