Dental Implant Technology in Houston, TX

One of the forefronts that we're working with is implant technology is new treatment planning models for the delivery for the all in four, all in five cases. Those treatment plan models are becoming more sophisticated. We are using currently a system that allows us to use combined 3D technology with our cone beam. We also have the intra-oral scanner and, with a certain amount of planning, we're able to have patients who want what we'll call teeth in a day, teeth in an hour, and deliver them in a very precise way. That means that the surgery done by computer digital planning, which is very, very accurate. And second, the prosthesis is made through computer technology. We're able to have the teeth made digitally, so to speak. So the accuracy is really incredible and that makes the final prosthesis a very simple step to make for the patients. This allows convenience, accuracy, and actually less pain and discomfort for the patient for that surgery.
