We recently took a course on Implant Surgery taught by Dr. Leo Malin at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies. Dr. Malin is one the foremost experts in Implant Dentistry. He teaches an advanced placement technique using Cone Beam Technology (3 dimensional Cat Scans) to design and place implants with extreme accuracy.
Sophisticated software programs use the three dimensional images to design surgical guides which allow us to place implants precisely where they will best serve long term and look the best when restored.
We prefer this method of placement over the “free hand” methods many surgeons employ which can sometime lead to implants being placed in less than desirable positions to restore. We are pleased to be able to provide this advanced service to our patients at Desert Smiles.
