About Dental Implants
A dental implant is like an artificial tooth root that takes over the function of a real root. When a natural root is lost, it can be replaced with a dental implant. The implants are usually made of titanium. They are very durable and are well accepted by the human body. Dental implants are now becoming a more popular treatment to replace missing tooth/teeth as they provide a longer-term solution, slow down bone loss and preserve nearby healthy tooth tissue and many more. Implants serve as a permanent alternative to a real tooth.
As dental implants are securely anchored unlike dentures there will be no movements. Having dental implant/s instead of denture will eliminates some of the main worries including gum irritation, poor fit and pain/discomfort.

3-D Scanning for Dental Implants
- CBCT can provide a detailed three-dimensional high-resolution image of bone which enables dentists to accurately plan treatments. It produces a high-quality image for the dentist to examine from different angles.
- 3D dental CBCT scans are essential for the accurate placement of dental implants. It measures the depth, width and density of the jaw bone, and more importantly the depth of bone in the proximity of the nerve canals and sinus cavities in a 3D view.
- CBCT scan increases the accuracy of the implant placement and reduces the chair time in comparison to the traditional method.
