The Advanced Smile Dentistry Office Now Has An X-Ray For Dental Implant Treatments!
At Advanced Smile Dentistry in Toms River, NJ, Dr. David Basar now has digital x-rays to further guarantee the precise placement of dental implants in patients with missing and failing teeth.
Digital x-rays are very safe and have been used in medicine for decades. They are practical and valuable tools for countless dental procedures, including the placement of single dental implants, multiple dental implants, implant supported dentures, and full mouth dental implant systems. Although digital x-rays require a small amount of radiation, they work very efficiently and do not cause harm to living tissues. In fact, they provide clearer insights into the soft tissue, bones, and other structures of the mouth rapidly and in real time.
When the digital x-ray is being used, a digital beam is sent from a piece of x-ray source equipment to another piece of equipment that can receive and record any anomalies between the two points, such as the defining outline of an object. In the case of digital oral x-rays, that object would be a patient's face and jaw. As the x-ray beam passes through the patient's facial features, the beam is disrupted in very specific ways. The outcome of those disruptions is a digital image that shows the contrast between matter of different densities.
Dr. Basar now uses digital x-rays to help him make decisions on patients who may want dental implants. For instance, Dr. Basar will use the x-ray images to decide if a patient has enough bone density to support dental implants. If not, the patient may need to first undergo a bone grafting procedure to ensure the implant post will be able to fuse with the surrounding jawbone tissue. Dr. Basar can also look through digital x-rays to see how a patient's mouth structures interact with each other. Knowing this ahead of time removes the possibility of causing unwanted complications during implant surgery.
