Ottawa, ON, CA (PRWEB) June 24, 2015
Drs. Cameron Jones and Gordon Schwartz are pleased to announce the availability of state-of-the-art Cone Beam technology at the GumDocs Periodontics and Implant Dentistry practice. This three-dimensional imaging equipment reduces the amount of time necessary to capture images that are used to develop personalized tooth replacement plans. Patients who are interested in dental implants in Ottawa, ON, CA can rely on Drs. Jones and Schwartz to analyze the results carefully when determining the optimal placement of each implant post.
Dental professionals typically use x-rays to provide details about the teeth, jaw, and other structures in the oral cavity. The two-dimensional representations are taken in a series of small pictures and linked together to provide the full, comprehensive picture of the mouth. Advances in digital technology and imaging systems are making dental and periodontal visits shorter and more comfortable, while providing clearer, more precise pictures. Cone Beam technology creates a continuous high definition 3D picture of a patient’s face and jaw. The cone-shaped x-ray swings around the patient and captures data, which then reconstructs the image of the oral and sinus cavities, as well as the jaw, neck and throat.
The information available to periodontists on 3D images is incredibly detailed and precise, rendering nerves and other structures visible, so they are able to analyze each case and create the best treatment plan for tooth replacement. Implant posts are surgically placed in the jawbone, where they fuse during the healing process to provide a secure root for the new crown. When periodontists are able to see abnormal teeth and roots, cavities and other dental issues, many of the risk factors involved in placing dental implants in Ottawa, ON, CA are reduced or eliminated entirely.
The FDA and the American Dental Association approve the use of 3D imaging systems because of the clinical advantages of the non-invasive x-ray procedure. A precise diagnosis and detailed treatment plan for tooth replacement helps patients to experience the best in dental implants in Ottawa, ON, CA.
