At Sierra Oral & Facial Surgery, we use top-of-the-line technology to improve the assessment of our patients’ surgical planning, as well as expectant outcomes. With the ability to assess the patient’s oral health & ability to plan the procedure in three dimensions, it is now easier than ever to achieve successful results for our patients. Becoming more accurate and less invasive is a direct result of the skilled application this advanced imaging technology bring to us. This technology also translates to a much more comfortable experience and shorter patient recoveries.
We believe in using the latest technology, which is why we’ve implemented full-craniofacial cone-beam computed tomography, which provides incredibly in-depth, three-dimensional photos of the patient’s oral situation, which we then use to create a detailed treatment plan. This technology is beneficial when diagnosing and planning treatment- or orthodontic-related procedures, facial deformities, facial and dental implant surgery, TMJ analysis, airway assessment, orthognathic surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and many others!
It is with this cone beam technology that we can obtain undistorted, anatomically correct views of jaws, facial bones, and teeth along with cross-sectional, axial, coronal, sagittal, cephalometric, and panoramic views. These incredibly detailed three-dimensional images provide a level of anatomic accuracy that could never be obtained through the use of two-dimensional technology.
