Digital Workflow for Ultimate Patient Comfort and Predictable Results
Our surgeons always have your best interest in mind. Their goal is to provide the best outcome in the most comfortable experience possible throughout the entire surgical process. Advances in dental technology allow them to do just that.
A cone beam CT machine is an x ray machine used to capture the facial structures in three dimensions. At Oklahoma Dental Implants and Oral Surgery the scanner used is an iCAT. While regular 2D images are useful for most dental and surgical procedures, CBCT machines allow precise planning of dental implant surgeries and complicated surgical cases.
3D imaging can be used to look for impacted tooth position, nerve position, assess facial structures for trauma, localize pathology, and assist in virtual surgical planning.
We share 3D images and videos with your referring doctor to collaborate, plan your treatment, and ultimately perform surgery to the gold standard.
In the past, one aspect of dentistry that patients expressed discomfort with wasn’t the actual procedure itself, but the process of getting dental impressions. Those thick metal trays filled with a gummy impression material was not pleasant.
To provide their patients with both the most comfortable experience possible and the most accurate impressions that can be taken, our surgeons have invested in a state-of-the-art 3Shape intraoral scanner. This cutting-edge technology enables them to take digital impressions of your entire mouth while eliminating the uncomfortable sensations and gag reflex associated with traditional impressions.
Whether we’re using your digital impressions for orthognathic surgery planning, planning a tooth restoration, or sending the digital impressions to a lab to custom create the best fitting dental implants for your mouth, the 3Shape Trios Move provides patients with a variety of benefits over traditional, gooey dental impressions. The surgical planning or prosthetic creation process is quicker and more accurate, ultimately delivering better results for you
Virtual Surgical Planning
Virtual planning is an innovative way of showing patients what their surgery will look like.
The team at Oklahoma Dental Implants and Oral Surgery will obtain a CBCT scan, as well as an intraoral scan and through specialized software the surgery will be planned virtually in order to provide the most predictable, accurate outcome.
At Oklahoma Dental Implants and Oral Surgery, 3D printed surgical guides are created in house. These guides are used during the surgery for execution of the original virtual plan
At Oklahoma Dental Implants and Oral Surgery our digital workflow allows us to virtually plan your case prior to the actual surgery. Using information from our virtual planning, surgical guides are printed in our lab on our MoonRay S high resolution 3D printer.
When we are discussing cases with your dentist, we use 3D printed patient models to plan each step of the process. Ask to see our 3D printer next time you’re in the office!
