If you’re missing teeth and ready to fill those gaps with dental implants—today’s superior teeth replacement option—you may be wondering where to go. What makes one practice more trusted and reliable than another? The secret to beautiful, natural-looking implant teeth is in the technology used to plan and place them.

We at Flushing Oral Surgery remain ahead of the curve when it comes to implementing cutting-edge technology in our dental implant care. We’ve replaced drilling and cutting with 3D scanners and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging. Why? Because keeping you safe and comfortable is our number one goal.

We’ve long been frontrunners in the use of highly advanced forms of modern technology so we can more efficiently address patient needs and provide the best care possible. This means we regularly invest in state-of-the-art equipment which enables us to perform dental procedures safely, quickly, and comfortably.

Read on to learn more about how 3D CBCT technology makes a difference in implant care for our patients.

3D Imaging and Scanning

CBCT is the newest innovation in imaging, and we use it to take highly accurate images of the anatomical structure of your teeth, bones, and nerves.

What is CBCT?

3D-imaging machineWhen it comes to the awe-inspiring technology of our day, dental CBCT is at the top of the charts. What we once considered an impossibility, as oral surgeons, is now possible. And what once took us a large amount of time to accomplish can now be done in mere seconds.

3D imaging with cone beam is a CT scan system that generates high-definition x-rays of your oral cavity within seconds. This revolutionary technology gathers precise details that we use for diagnostic purposes before creating treatments plans that we tailor to your unique case.

What is CBCT used for?

CBCT makes collecting information quick and simple. Our 3D imaging system allows our doctors to:

  • Gain visual access to every angle of your anatomical structures.
  • Determine best treatment options.
  • Analyze nerve, sinus, and roots positions before surgery.
  • Remove any guesswork in measuring and positioning implants.

Patient Benefits

Our CBCT technology is a state-of-the-art tool that is not only effective in helping our doctors in performing their best work, but it significantly improves our patients’ experiences as well. Our 3D imaging system provides quick, easy, instant scans, is less expensive, and allows for a more comfortable patient experience.

The health and safety of our patients is our priority, and CBCT technology ensures the best possible care possible. The benefits include:

  • Exposure to very low amounts of radiation.
  • The most accurate diagnosis and treatment plans.
  • Increased success in procedures.
  • Lower surgical risk factor.

Top oral surgeons Dr. Li and Dr. Fan have devoted extensive time and education to implantology, resulting in top-notch oral surgical care. Our modern equipment makes it possible for our procedures to be fully completed in our office, providing both convenience and comfort to each and every patient.
