3D Technology Redondo Beach
3D technology allows us to reduce the time that patients are in our office and deliver more comfortable and precise service. We are able to do “one-visit crowns” with our CEREC® 3D system.
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 after those icky impression that make most people gag. In essence, this 3D modeling technology eliminates the delay that comes while working with a dental lab. The dentist can then directly control fabrication of your crown in the office while you wait, allowing you to walk out with your crown cemented permanently in place.
We also use iTero® for 3D modeling of your teeth. This is also more accurate than traditional impressions, and benefits our patients by accelerating their Invisalign treatment. iTero also gives patients the ability to view a virtual simulation of how their teeth will look before and after they have been straightened.
Finally, the Galileos® 3D digital CBCT 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 CBCT 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. Our planning allows us to perform these procedures in less surgical time and with more safety than traditional blind “free hand” surgery.
