Cone Beam Imaging Now Improves the Placement of Dental Implants in Washington DC with Dr. Steven Rice of Advanced Laser Surgery
Date:11/1/2013

Washington DC (PRWEB) November 01, 2013

Steven Rice, DDS, now uses cone beam imaging technology to determine the precise placement of dental implants in his DC patients. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation. The CBCT device rotates all the way around a patient’s head, taking hundreds of images in the process. The images are collected and compiled into a 3-dimensional digital rendering of the patient’s anatomy including the bone, tissue and nerve structures. In conjunction with special software, Dr. Rice can use CBCT for treatment planning, including a step-by-step plan for dental implant surgery.

Dental implants consist of a titanium base that is placed in the jaw bone, an attachment piece, and a custom crown. The base must be placed at a very precise angle. CBCT can help Dr. Rice determine the angle and can also help him determine if the underlying bone is healthy enough to support the implant structure. After placement, the bone must be allowed to heal around the implant for a period of time. Then, the attachment piece is added, and the dental crown is fixed to the implant. The crown is designed to blend in perfectly with the patient’s natural tooth.

Dental implants are a popular tooth replacement solution because they function and look like a natural tooth. Because the implant makes contact with the bone, it can stimulate the bone and encourage it to maintain a healthy level of density. In this way it functions just like the roots of a natural tooth. When cared for properly, dental implants placed by DC periodontist Dr. Steven Rice can last a lifetime with little maintenance.
