At Desert Smiles we recently did some continuing education on Cone Beam Imaging – taught by Dale Miles, DDS. Dr. Miles is one of the most highly dental radiologists in the world. The course was held at the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health.
The advances in Cone Beam Imaging were discussed along with the use of these new imaging systems in the diagnosis and placement of implants and their ability to diagnosis oral pathologies that traditional x-ray systems can’t detect.
As we expand our ability to place implants for our patients this technology makes an extremely accurate diagnosis and placement much more predictable and successful. Three-dimensional guided surgery is the state of the art in implant placement, which we have now incorporated into our patient services.
