CT Scans for Improved Treatment & Experience

Bringing You Better Dental Care With the Latest Technology

CT Scans For Dental Implants and Other Dental Procedures

Here at Vista Dental Care & Specialty Center, the care and comfort of our patients is at the top of our list of priorities. That’s why we always use the latest, high-quality technology that allows us to quickly identify any dental problem and get it taken care of right away. Because we’re always striving to offer the best service possible, we’re proud to announce that we use the Vatech CT scanner in our office.

A Revolutionary Device
Our CT scanner produces images that offer a level of superior quality that we’ve never seen before. It provides us with a completely clear view of your particular dental issue so that we can make a fast and perfectly accurate diagnosis. This scanner provides multiple views of a patient’s entire mouth and jaw, and this device is essential when dealing with implants because it’s used to determine the thickness of the bone and the location of the nerves in your face.

The Importance of Having a CT Scan Prior to Receiving Dental Implants

During dental implant surgery, we create a man-made root to place in the bone. It’s critical to the success of the implant that we accurately pinpoint vital dental structures before we prepare the bone and place the implant. The scans allow us to pinpoint the following structures without error:

  • Inferior alveolar canal
  • Mental foramen
  • Maxillary sinus
  • Shape of the mandible

The scans allow us to identify the placement of these structures precisely. Our patients receive a number of wonderful benefits; these include a shorter surgery time, fewer visits to the dental office and a much lower chance of complications. A dentist that does implant surgery without the use of a CT scanner may leave the patient with an unsuccessful implant.

Our Patients Deserve the Best

Here at Vista Dental Care & Specialty Center, we want you to be relaxed throughout the diagnostic process and the treatment phase. We’re confident that this superior technology will keep you safer and more comfortable, all while ensuring that we are able to provide you with the overall best dental care.
