3D Cone-Beam Imaging/ 3D CT Scanning
Although digital X-rays have improved over recent years, they don’t provide a comprehensive picture of what’s going on beneath the surface in your mouth. While planning implant placement, Dr. Crumpton likes to know where major blood vessels and other structures are located so that he can avoid any unnecessary complications.
This technology allows him to see a more precise 3D model of your oral cavity, which he utilizes to strategize your placement procedure meticulously. As a result, you can experience fewer hiccups and enjoy your fully restored smile!
iTero & CEREC Digital Impression System
After your implants have had sufficient time to become integrated with the jawbone, Dr. Crumpton will place the abutment pieces, which connect the restorations to the posts. These abutments stick out above the gums. At this point, we can gather impressions of your mouth and fabricate your restorations. In the past, this process involved a messy, goopy putty being pressed against your upper and lower arches to create a mold to ensure an accurate fit. Fortunately, we take advantage of our digital impression system, which entails a small device easily, quickly, and comfortably scanning your oral cavity. Dr. Crumpton then designs your restoration right here, and it is made in our office. You may even get your restoration during the same appointment!
