Hartford, CT (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Dr. David Edelson is pleased to offer dental implants to Hartford, CT residents who are in need of tooth replacement. Dr. Edelson uses cone beam collimated tomography in order to generate remarkably clear high definition x-ray images in 3D that guide him through the dental implant placement and diagnostic processes.
There are many reasons patients may request and dentists may recommend dental implants in Hartford, CT. Dental implant placement is often utilized to replace missing teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Implants are also frequently requested by patients who want an alternative to traditional removable dentures. When a patient receives implant supported dentures, three or more implants are placed within the jaw bone in order to give the dentures something to snap onto, providing greater stability. Implants can also be utilized to place a single missing tooth or several adjacent teeth, such as with an implant bridge.
Cone beam imaging systems make it much easier for Dr. Edelson to place implants as accurately as possible. The images are in high definition and provide a 3D view of the treatment area so that he can clearly diagnose the patient’s needs and recommend the most effective treatment options. If it is determined that dental implants are the best treatment option, cone beam imaging technology can then be used to guide him through the implant placement process by providing a panoramic image of the area that can be generated and displayed on a monitor within seconds.
Benefits of cone beam imaging include the ability to clearly visualize parts of a patient’s mouth that cannot be fully evaluated or diagnosed externally, and the ability to create more effective treatment plans. Cone beam imaging also produces much less radiation than traditional x-rays, and is a less expensive technology than a hospital CT scan.
Patients who are interested in receiving the most precise and effective dental implant placement possible are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Edelson’s Hartford office. With the help of cone beam imaging technology, Dr. Edelson is able to utilize the latest advancements in technology to assist him in placing dental implants in Hartford, CT.
