We want to ensure that our patients have the best care possible. By using the latest technology, we are able to review high-quality images for dental implant planning and create a 3-D printed surgical guide.
Step 1: CT Scan taken in our office
Our patients deserve the best service we can offer and that is why we invest only in the finest technology.
The PAX-i3D Green is a digital imaging system that provides multiple views of a patient’s jaw and mouth (called a Cone Beam CT Scan).
Step 2: Digital Scan
In place of a tradition dental impression, Dr. Britten uses a Medit i-700 scanner to take a digital 3-D impression for the surgical guide. This can be done at the same visit as the CT scan!
Step 3: Planning the Surgery
Your CT scan and Digital Impression are uploaded to the Dental Laboratory’s sophisticated software program. Dr. Britten plans your implant surgery and surgical guide along with an experienced laboratory clinician.
Step 4: 3-D Printed Surgical Guide
Our Dental Lab will fabricate the surgical guide with their state-of-the-art 3-D printer. We usually receive your surgical implant guide in four weeks from the time the digital impression and CT scan is completed in our office.
Step 5: Dental implant surgery
Dr. Britten can perform your dental implant surgery with confidence, using a precision-crafted Scan Implant Surgical Guide. This ensures the highest degree of safety and accuracy of the implant placement.
