Programs Or 3D Software On Dental

Medical programs or software are more common in use today; in dentistry, they are increasingly used as a tool to:

  • Diagnosis
  • Planning
  • Treatment

Together they work for the visualization of bone structures or soft tissues, reconstructing the planar images of said studies to a volumetric image or also called 3D.

From this planning, the surgical guide can be manufactured using a 3D printer in order to transport the virtual planning exactly to something physical, with it it will allow us to perform minimally invasive surgeries, place implants with greater precision, protect important structures such as nerves, maxillary sinuses, contiguous tooth roots, the ideal position to have a good emergence and a prosthesis with a suitable design, minimize errors, reduce surgical times that in turn, the patient will obtain a better postsurgical evolution.

Material And Method

Eleven mandibles from a fresh cadaver were studied, half of them toothed, which underwent CBTC and a surgical procedure to lateralize the lower dental nerve in order to measure the thickness of the vestibular table and the thickness of the mandibular or inferior dental canal (CDI) at 5, 15 and 25 mm from the most posterior part of the mental foramen.

The results obtained by our study indicate that CBTC, being the best diagnostic method currently available, still presents differences with respect to reality. This discrepancy is 1.15  mm on average in relation to the thickness of the buccal bone table that covers it and 0.3  m on average in relation to the thickness of the ICD.

Low-dose Digital Radiographs Have Several Advantages:

• Digital radiographs reduce the patient’s radiation exposure by up to 90 percent compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental radiographs.

• Your dentist can instantly view and enlarge images, making it easier for us to spot problems and point them out.

• Digital X-rays do not require film processing, eliminating the need to dispose of harmful waste products and chemicals into the environment.

Cone Beam Imaging (CT Scans)

A CT scan of the oral cavity, particularly at the potential dental implant site, prior to an implant procedure is critical. It can help assess a patient’s suitability for an implant procedure, including detailed visualization of the depth of the existing underlying jaw bone that can help determine if a patient may require a bone graft.

A diagnostic CT scan is also vital for accurate, precise, and safe implant placement with as few complications as possible. Essentially, a CT scan prior to a dental implant procedure will significantly improve the likelihood of a successful smooth procedure and a smooth recovery thereafter.

Guided Implantology

Even today, dentists are still trained to perform dental implant placement without a computer guide. This conventional method would often require more time, processes, and incisions to complete the job. Consequently, for some patients, this could also lead to additional downtime after surgery.

However, with computer-guided implant technology, dentists are better able to place the implant in a precise location. Advanced equipment and displays allow dentists to clearly see available bone, surrounding tissues, and where to safely install the implant. …

What Is A Dental Ct Scan?

What Is A Dental Ct Scan?

A dental CT -a short way of defining Computerized Axial Tomography- is a device that uses X-rays to obtain three-dimensional images of the teeth and maxillary bones -upper and lower- of the patient.

Since some people may confuse CT with a traditional panoramic X-ray, at this point it should be remembered that CT imaging performs three-dimensional images, whereas conventional X-ray does not.

When Is The Dental Ct Performed?

As we have advanced previously, it is used fundamentally in Implantology, although it can have more uses:

Implant Placement:

It allows studying the bone structure to determine the exact position in which the implant is going to be placed in the bone. It also allows you to see the status of the tooth root.

Bone Regeneration:

CT can also be used to check the patient’s bone dimension and determine if he has enough bone.

It is a vital step to carry out the intervention or if it is necessary to also plan some bone regeneration technique, such as the maxillary sinus lift.

Wisdom Teeth Included:

The CT scan is used to verify its relationship with the lower dental nerve and to calculate the best possible approach for the extraction of wisdom teeth.

Canines Included:

The appliance is used when orthodontic treatment is to be performed, either with braces or invisible orthodontics with Invisalign aligners, and there is a canine included.

In this way, it is planned that said tooth comes down to the correct position.

As in the case of Sofía, one of our patients had two included canines, one in the upper arch and the other in the lower arch.

To plan your lingual orthodontics with Incognito brackets -a treatment 100% invisible to the human eye-, we perform a dental CT scan.

CT For Implant Placement

CT scans give you images captured by X-rays, which detect the density of all hard tissues, through sensors created to perform 3D evaluations.

Computed tomography, also known as CT, is designed to diagnose small spaces with high resolution, which allows the bones around dental implants to be viewed with great precision. Additionally, the use of CT scans in dental areas has spread thanks to its properties for making micro tomographies.

The CT scan is used both to carry out the previous diagnoses to know the position of the teeth, before the nerve or endodontic treatments, as well as for the evaluation before the implant placement.

Advantages Of CT For Implant Placement

  • To delve a little deeper into the benefits that the use of TAC brings, below, we will comment on the most outstanding advantages of this tool:
  • The CT scan provides specialists with precise results that allow them to improve the protocols that will be used in surgery when placing dental implants.
  • Carrying out a CT before surgery allows doctors to know the patient’s condition and ensure the success of the intervention.
  • It favors the precision of the diagnosis made by the specialist, thanks to its ability to provide results in three dimensions, which allow very small areas to be visualized in detail.
  • The use of CT facilitates the exact diagnosis of the amount of bone that the patient has to place the implant.
  • It reduces the surprise factor because through the CT the doctor has a previous version of all the hard areas.
  • The CT scan is a highly useful computerized tool, not only for implant placement but also for treating the dental nerve.
  • The results of the CT scan allow specialists to know first-hand the root canals before intervening directly on the patient.
  • These are just some of the many benefits that CT offers to specialists, as a method of diagnosis and/or evaluation before carrying out any dental treatment, such as the placement of dental implants, nerve treatments, and even endodontics.
