3D Technology Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach
For the last 7 years we have been using 3D technology. We currently have 3 different 3D technologies in our office.
3D technology allows us to reduce the time our Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach patients are in our office and deliver more comfortable and precise service. We are able to do “one-visit crowns” with our CEREC® 3D CAD/CAM computer.
Gone are the days of temporary crowns, sensitive teeth, and getting numb twice for the same procedure. This technology is much more precise than traditional metal/porcelain crowns fabricated from those icky gagging impression materials. We also use iTero® for 3D photos of your teeth, which, again, is more accurate than traditional impressions and will accelerate your Invisalign treatment.
Finally, the Galileos® 3D digital CT x-ray machine will allow us to see all of the structures of your mouth from any angle. We have used this technology to discover various pathologies that neither our patients nor their medical doctors were aware of. We mainly use our Galileos® 3D digital CT x-ray machine for our implant planning. With this technology we can avoid important structures to assure a safe surgical experience. It also allows us to precisely place an implant through computer guided surgery, exactly where we planned in less surgical time and with more safety than traditional blind “free hand” surgery. We can “shoe horn” an implant in minimal bone where the traditional blind surgery cannot.
3D technology has saved our Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach patients extra bone grafting surgeries, time, and money.
