We have the ability to regenerate bone when needed. Socket preservation can repair sites with inadequate bone structure and allows more patients to become implant candidates.
Cone Beam CT scanning allows Dr. Akin to visualize the 3 dimensional anatomy of the teeth, jaws and face with much less radiation than traditional medical CAT scanners. This important technology is used in the office and is an extrememly cost effective way to obtain 3D images to assist with dental implant treatment planning, determine the position of wisdom teeth, and assist with diagnosis of pathology.

Here is an image of a 12 year old with developing dentition. 3D scan was used to determine the positioning of the adult teeth prior to deciduous tooth removal.
Note: the images below are shown as a comparison between a typical 2D Panorex and the 3D CBCT.

Diagnostic ability is greatly improved with the in-office use of this technology.
