Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Dr. Russell W. Phillips now offers more precise placement of dental implants in Washington DC. Using new cone beam technology he is able to improve the dental implant process at his practice.
Instead of using traditional x-rays, Dr. Phillips uses Cone Beam imaging. The Cone Beam technology generates 3D, high-definition x-rays in rapid fashion. Provided with remarkably clear 3D images, Dr. Phillips is able to more accurately diagnose and treat dental issues that may exist, including the need for tooth replacement.
Tooth loss is a major issue nationwide, with 69 percent of adults ages 35 to 44 missing at least one permanent tooth. By the age of 74, 26 percent of all adults are missing all of their permanent teeth. These figures demonstrate the potentially high demand for dental implants in Washington DC and the surrounding areas. While not all patients are eligible for dental implants, the procedure provides an alternative to fixed bridges and dentures.
Prospective patients interested in the procedures offered by Dr. Phillips and his staff should call the office to schedule a consultation.
