Technology keeps leaping ahead with advancements and changes, and it can be challenging to keep up with. However, when it comes to your dental implant or other surgical procedures, you don’t have to worry. Dr. Jacobs and our team are highly trained and use the industry’s most advanced oral surgery services and technology in LaGrange, GA every day to ensure success for our patients through more accuracy, better planning, and more reliable results.
X-rays are imperative for examining oral structures below the gums. Our digital technology enables us to capture these important images and have them ready for Dr. Jacobs’ review right away, which means that we don’t have to work with harsh chemicals that are bad for the environment. Digital technology also reduces the radiation you’re exposed to, giving you peace of mind about your body’s health and safety during your time with us.
Although X-rays have come a long way in recent years, they only show tooth and bone structure. Our digital cone beam scanner goes into more detail, taking hundreds of images and combining them to construct a 3D image of all oral structures, including blood vessels and nerve points. With this information, we can plan ahead for the procedure and avoid hitting problem spots. In the end, that means faster, better healing and more successful results.
When it comes to dental implants, the placement of the posts is key. We use virtual and guided imaging technology to ensure that the procedure goes smoothly and more efficiently than traditional implant placement surgery. In fact, this advanced surgery enables us to give patients their new smile in just one dental visit, which is significantly faster than the typical implant timeline.
