Why a CT is Essential for Implants

Our Dental Implant Surgery Technique In Fresno

We have iCAT CT technology in-house, which means you don’t have to go elsewhere for your imaging needs. We’ve invested in this technology to help us provide safe and successful dental implant services at our Fresno dentist office.

A CT (computed tomography) scan, also called a CAT (computerized axial tomography) scan, is a diagnostic aid used to obtain three-dimensional images of your face. It is a specialized kind of X-ray which is of high diagnostic value because of its clarity and accuracy. We use this type of scan in conjunction with diagnosing and treating our Fresno area patients.

CT Scan for Dental Implants and Other Uses in Dentistry

  • With the help of a CT scan, a Dr. Mirelez is able to determine the exact location and size of a tumor and treat accordingly. Hence it is imperative in the diagnosis of oral cancers.
  • It is essential for determining the density of the jaw bones before proceeding with dental implants. A CT scan is the most helpful diagnostic tool for these cases, as the images are precise and have no overlapping images, like there are in conventional radio graphs. It allows Dr. Mirelez to identify vital anatomical structures like major nerves, arteries and sinus. This is essential.
  • It helps in the diagnosis of temporomandibular joint disorders and extraction of impacted teeth.

Benefits of CT Scans When Used In Dentistry:

  • It provides clear internal anatomy
    CT scans are extremely accurate, and there is no overlapping of images or distortion of images. Dr. Mirelez is able to view the structures with utmost clarity and decide a precise treatment plan.
  • It has a quick image production
    Within a matter of a few seconds, the image of the structure is obtained and can be viewed comfortably on a monitor.
  • You can obtain a view from various points and angles
    The images produced are of three-dimensional form. Hence, they can be viewed from various points and angles. This is one of the biggest advantages of a CT scan when compared to a conventional intraoral or panoramic radiograph.
  • It allows pre-planning in dental implants, therefore limiting surprises
    CT scans play a very important role in dental implant surgery. The success of a dental implant relies on the degree of osseointegration, or put simply, the extent of fusion of the implant to the surrounding bone. The determination of the quality and the quantity of underlying bone is a crucial step in this procedure. CT scans provide the exact dimensions which help the dentist to decide if the bone is strong enough to support an implant. Furthermore, Dr. Mirelez is able to prepare a surgical template prior to the implant surgery on the basis of the image obtained through CT scan. This template acts as a guide for the insertion of the dental implants.
  • Bone and soft tissue can be viewed at the same time
    CT scan can be used for the visualization of both hard tissues like bone, and soft tissues like tumors.
  • It’s a non-invasive procedure
    This is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure. Hence, it is painless and quite comfortable for the patient.

  • Before my implant, I appeared to have a “snag tooth” appearance in my photographs. Now, my appearance has improved to how I looked before losing the teeth. Dr. Mirelez was very thorough in explaining the procedure. He makes it as simple as possible and is excellent at his craft. If you are considering Dr. Mirelez, I would tell you that he is an outstanding dentist that guides you through the process. My new teeth look super! As far as my smile goes, I Love it! It’s what I do most of the day my teeth were restored to “what used to be” which is great at my age— 64.

    Dr. Mirelez’s team is exceptional. Thank you Dr. Mirelez!!

  • I had an abscessed tooth that was an anchor for my bridge and it wasn’t fixable. I hate surprising pain, so I decided to get it fixed. My new teeth solid and look better than my old bridge. Dr. Mirelez told me exactly what to expect during the procedure. Implant dentistry sounds worse than it is. Just take one step at a time. It’s worth it! Dr. Mirelez was very gentle, concerned and very capable. He even checked on me at my home. My teeth look cared for and healthy. I always smile now! And I’m glad it was done! Unfortunately, I really enjoy eating again. I can chew without worries! Everyone in the office is so pleasant to deal with.

  • My front tooth fractured off at the gum line. We decided to do an implant to close the gap. I am glad we decided to do an implant. It took a while, but I do not regret it. Dr. Mirelez is a very good dentist and he has taken most of my fears away. My life is so much better now. I can smile and feel comfortable and I love it. If you are considering Dr. Mirelez’s implant dentistry, I would say, “do it, he is very good!” Dr. Mirelez is the best dentist I have ever gone to and I had a gone to a lot of them.

  • I had no teeth and it was hard to chew. I had a partial that flipped around in my mouth.I feel great about my new teeth, it’s like having my own teeth back. It’s nice not to have your teeth out to brush them. I can eat anything and even chew gum. The implant process may be long, but its well worth it. Dr. Mirelez and staff are great. My implant look and feel very natural I would recommend Implants to whoever is losing or have lost any teeth.
