Free Access to CBCT for Dental Implants
When placing dental implants, using dental imaging like CBCT is ideal. The CAD/CAM software can virtually reflect a 3D dental implant within the design, making it a crucial piece of the implant planning process. In a matter of 15 second or less, this technology can spot:
- Anatomic structures
- Incisive canal
- Submandibular fossa
- Mandibular cana
- Maxillary sinus
- Shape and size of the ridge
- Quality and quantity of bones
- Amount of bone loss
Even more helpful in the implant planning process is the ability to include the implant and virtually place it before the start of any surgical procedure.
The trouble most dentists have is finding access to expensive dental CBCT technology. Zuga Medical offers free CBCT services to all general dentists who use Zuga implants.
