MIAMI BEACH, FL (PRWEB) June 05, 2018
Prosthodontist, Dr. Howard Abrahams now welcomes new patients to his practice for advanced dental care using cone beam CT imaging technology. This technology allows Dr. Abrahams a detailed view of the patient’s mouth during the treatment planning process for procedures like tooth extractions or dental implants in Miami Beach, FL. With detailed information of the oral structure, patients can expect successful treatments with improved aesthetic results.
Dr. Abrahams has used the Vatech CBCT scanning technology since 2013 during his treatment planning, and is now making it available to more patients. “It is invaluable and allows us to attempt procedures that might have been considered too risky in the past,” says Dr. Abrahams. “Also, it allows us to treatment plan in advance with more certainty so I can give the patient a full treatment plan with all costs up front, so there are no surprises.”
The practice uses this cone beam CT scan technology for multiple procedures, including:
- Dental implants
- Tooth extractions
- Root canals
- Bone grafting
- Denture creation
When a CBCT scan is performed, it takes a 3D view of the entire oral structure. This gives Dr. Abrahams a detailed look at the bone volume, location of nerves and positioning of surrounding tooth roots. After this information has been gathered, Dr. Abrahams can accurately create a treatment plan and give patients an estimated cost of their procedures.
The CBCT scans can also improve the safety of procedures. By knowing the position of a root prior to tooth extractions, Dr. Abrahams can avoid damaging the jaw bone or surrounding teeth. Additionally, when placing dental implants, a CBCT scan reveals the location of nerves and bone volume. This information is important when planning implant placement so the post is inserted in areas with most bone and avoids damaging nerves.
