Campbell, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
Dr. Jeremy Ueno, of Ueno Periodontics, is excited to announce that he is now offering a new dental implant procedure to his patients. This procedure places implants digitally to ensure complete accuracy.
To do the procedure, Dr. Ueno will begin by taking a CT scan (3D xray) with the Sirona Galileos CT scanner, which Ueno Periodontics has in-house. The scan will form a file named a DCM file. Then, an iTero digital impression is taken of the teeth inside the patient’s mouth. This impression will form what is called an STL file.
The DCM file and STL file will then be merged to create an overlay of the teeth and gums, from the STL file, over the bone and anatomic structures, from the DCM file. This will be done using Simplant software. At this point, implant placement is done on the computer virtually.
Once Dr. Ueno is happy with the virtual implant placement, he will send the case to a lab for the fabrication of a computer-guided implant placement surgical guide. This ensures complete accuracy of the implant placement. Dr. Ueno can also have temporary teeth, made with CAD/CAM technology, ready at the time of surgery. This way, he can give his patients “teeth in a day” in some cases.
