The Importance of CT Scans for Dental Implant Planning
Dental implants are placed into the jawbone to replace lost tooth roots. Prior to the actual implant placement, the implant dentist will need to have a clear image of the patient’s anatomy to ensure the safety and success of the procedure. Your dental implant treatment planning is helped by the cutting-edge Carestream C1800 CT scanner by determining:
Bone quality – good jawbone quality is needed for the placement of dental implants. The artificial tooth roots need a solid base where they can be inserted to. A CT scan of the oral and skeletal anatomy will help determine if there is still enough bone to support the placement of dental implants.
The need for bone augmentation – clear CT scan images will show the quality of jawbone to determine if bone augmentation is needed prior to the placement of dental implants.
Location of crucial anatomical structures – images obtained by the Carestream C1800 CT scanner will clearly show where the nerves and sinuses are located. This helps in the formulation of a safe treatment plan, so these structures can be avoided during the implant placement.
Accurate placement of dental implants – determining the most ideal location for implant placement is made easier with the help of CT scan images. These precise images also aid the implant dentist in choosing the best diameter and length for the dental implants to be used, as well as the angle of their placement.
