As part of our commitment to patient care, Dr. Larson stays at the forefront of technological advancements in oral surgery. One of these advancements includes the use of advanced CBCT imaging technology, enabling us to design surgical plans with great precision and achieve desired, predictable results.
During your first visit to Breakwater Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Dental Implants, we will likely take 3D scans of your head and mouth, then use these images to design your custom care plan. If you have not yet scheduled your first visit, contact our office in Norton Shores, MI, today to schedule a consultation.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
With detailed 3D images, Dr. Larson can view the anatomical structures of the oral and maxillofacial regions from virtually any angle, including facial bones, soft tissues, sinus cavities, and more. This allows us to detect hidden issues, diagnose oral health conditions, and create a surgical plan. 3D scans are especially helpful in avoiding facial nerves and preventing any surprises during surgery.
- 3D scans are more accurate than traditional 2D X-rays.
- One scan takes only seconds to complete.
- We can quickly share 3D scans with other members of your care team.
Faster Recovery Time
With a detailed image of the oral and maxillofacial regions, Dr. Larson can perform surgery with great precision, resulting in a faster surgery and recovery for our patients. More information and accuracy during surgery means less irritation to surrounding structures. As a result, patients experience less post-surgical swelling and discomfort and the healing process is much smoother.
3D Imaging and Oral Surgery Procedures
3D scans are beneficial to all types of oral and maxillofacial procedures. In nearly all cases, we will take CBCT scans to provide the most accurate diagnosis and treatment plan. For example, we will take 3D scans for patients who are undergoing:
- Dental implant placement
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Full-arch restoration
- Bone grafting
- Impacted tooth exposure
- Jaw surgery
- Facial trauma repair
- Treatment for TMJ disorder
Your safety and health are our top concerns. By using state-of-the-art imaging technology, we create safer surgical experiences and more predictable clinical outcomes for our patients.
