Implants and bone grafting
The main reason Dr Brooks brought in the 3D scanning unit in addition to diagnosing vague toothaches is to accurately plan implants. 3D scans easily allow him to get the correct angulation, which extends the life of implants.
Most of us have heard about implants failing, or catching food, or not working correctly, This is a shame, and most often a result of poor planning. The new standard that is evolving is full digital planning BEFORE any implants are placed. This allows perfect and safe placement of the implant, and the crown will be naturally perfect after.
