Dr. Chon strongly feels 3D Cone Beam CT scan is an essential tool when planning for Dental Implants, Wisdom Teeth removal surgery, Dental Implants requiring Sinus Surgery, Bone Grafting for dental implants, and difficult calcified Root Canal Treatment. In addition, 3D CT scan images help Dr. Chon in early detection of periodontal disease or gum disease because routine dental X-ray images do not show early bone loss. Bone loss is the leading cause of early tooth loss.
- Dental Implant placement and wisdom teeth removal. Nerves can be damaged during Dental implant placement or wisdom teeth removal if you do not know the location of the nerve.
- Dental implant placement and Sinus surgery. Sinus membrane needs lifting when there is not enough upper jawbone to place dental implants. CT scan will help to locate the sinus membrane.
- Bone Grafting for dental implants. Jawbone needs grafting when there is not enough bone to anchor dental implants. CT scan will help calculate build an ideal site for your dental implants.
- Difficult and calcified root canal treatment. Calcified nerves creates root canal treatment more challenging. CT scan is used to help hard to find nerves.
