Today we are lucky to have many different options for tooth replacement. The right choice for you will depend on several factors. We invite you to contact our Gasport, NY practice to talk about dental implants, dentures, ...

How much do you think you know about dental implants?

Researchers from Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) set out to determine how much people know and understand about dental implants. They interviewed two groups of patients being treated at the VCU School of Dentistry’s dental clinic – the first group was comprised of patients who were at the clinic for implant treatment; the second group was visiting for other general services.

The results showed that about 25% of the patients receiving general care had never heard of implants. Clearly, we have a lot of work to do in educating patients and making them aware of dental implants as a tooth replacement!

CBCT Revolutionized Dental Implant Treatment Plans

Cone Beam Computed Tomography or 3D scanning is a variation of a CAT scan that has been adapted to its use in dentistry. It is a very safe way to examine a patient with a very low dose of radiation, unlike medical scans. Medical scans are called fan beam and that’s where a person lays on the table and they get pushed into this huge machine with a round circular magnet around them.

Dental Cone Beam CT scan is pretty much a stand up machine which looks kind of like a panoramic x-ray machine that most people are familiar or used to. The machine moves around the patient’s head and it ...
