santa rosa digital imagingWe offer a full array of oral surgical treatments to handle serious issues, from facial trauma to tooth loss. To offer these procedures with precision and accuracy, we plan your procedure in detail with advanced imaging technology. In today’s blog, your Santa Rosa, CA, oral surgeons talk about our digital x-rays and CBCT technologies!

When to Seek Oral Surgery

Our team can tackle serious concerns. We can replace missing teeth with dental implants, provide wisdom tooth extraction to protect the smile, and even use grafting or sinus lift procedures to prepare your smile for implant placement. We can repair facial trauma, conduct jaw surgery, and even bracket impacted teeth into place. Whether you are undergoing minor or extensive oral surgery, we have experience in helping patients of all ages, and in fact, our doctors are members of the Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital Trauma Team. In addition to anesthesia and sedation, we want to ensure your treatment is a comfortable and positive experience by planning the procedure in detail, which is why we use digital imaging technology.

Digital X-Rays

Digital x-rays provide detailed, high-definition panoramic images of your smile, so we can see the tooth roots, jawbone, and oral structures to plan treatments like tooth extraction, dental implant placement, and more. The digital system uses 90% less radiation, and we don’t need to develop the images in harsh chemicals, instead everything is available instantly chairside, on monitors that allow us to make a diagnosis with precision and accuracy, and to plan treatments in detail. No bitewings either, and you spend less time in the chair! We can transmit images to your general dentist, orthodontist, or doctor as needed. The process is simple. You place your chin on a rest while a machine encircles your head to gather the images quickly and comfortably.

CBCT Technology

Our team also provide a type of iCAT scan known as cone-beam computed tomography, or CBCT. These offer highly advanced 3D images of your head and mouth in their entirety, so we can diagnose and plan treatments like tooth extraction, dental implant placement, and surges to improve the jaw or correct trauma to the face. We can plan treatment to avoid sinus cavities, nerve tissues, and blood vessels, and this uses less radiation than a typical CT scan.
