Articles How Harley Street Dental Studio Uses CT Scans For Perfect Implant Treatment
At Harley Street Dental Studio, we recognise the value of modern technology, and we are always keen to invest in equipment and machinery, which improves the quality of treatment we provide for our clients. Implants are becoming increasingly popular, and we pride ourselves on being a leading implant provider for patients in London and beyond. We are delighted to offer our clients precision treatments thanks to the use of CT scans.
CT scans and implant treatment
CT scans are used widely in medicine, but they also have a role to play in dentistry. CT scanners produce incredibly detailed images of inside the body, which provide much greater accuracy than traditional X-rays. At Harley Street Dental Studio, we use CT scan images to pinpoint the optimum location for implants, small titanium devices, which replace natural tooth roots.
Implants are placed inside small openings in the jaw bone and to maximise the chance of successful treatment, we use the detailed images to locate the best possible site for the new socket. We can also the CT images to show patients where the implant will be located and explain the treatment process in more detail.
What happens when you have a CT scan?
Having a CT scan is nothing to worry about, and you won’t experience any pain while you have your scan. The procedure is very quick and your dentist will explain what will happen before your appointment. This scan will only involve your face and it takes just a few minutes. Before the scan, you’ll be asked to remove anything loose, such as jewellery and glasses, and the team will be on hand if you do have any questions or concerns.
The benefits of CT scans
CT scans provide us with more information than conventional X-rays and this increases the chances of implant treatment being successful.
