At Arrowhead Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we believe in adopting the newest in proven dental technology to bring value and quality to all of our patients. Technology that helps to save us time and informs our decision-making processes allows us to provide the highest quality procedures to our patients at extremely affordable rates.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
By offering the latest in state-of-the-art technology, our surgical center can out-compete our competitors by leaps and bounds. We feature the latest in 3D imaging and digital impression technology, which is more accurate and faster than the physical impression technology of the past. The 3D cone beam imaging system allows us to streamline and automate a large portion of the workload that used to be tedious and time-consuming.
The 3D cone beam imaging system allows us to take incredibly detailed images of your mouth in a computer generated format that is easy to view and share with other healthcare professionals who are working on your case. With these images, we can easily view every part of your mouth, from your teeth and bones to soft tissues and nerves; all this in high definition 3D images and cross-sections.
With the 3D cone beam scanner, we can provide you with a more comprehensive consultation and evaluation, such as:
||Determine the quality, shape, width, and even the density of the jaw bone, which we do when a patients is considering dental implants.
||Determine the best treatment method and options to correct facial and oral health issues.
||Examine critical anatomical structure in-depth, such as sinus passages and nerves within your jaw.
There was a time when taking an X-ray was a time-consuming process. Every time that we took an X-ray, we would have to wait 20 minutes for it to develop, and if there was an issue with the X-ray, we wouldn’t know until it was done developing and we would have to start the process all over again. Now, with the help of our digital X-ray machine, we can view your X-rays immediately in high definition. We can even share the X-rays with you on a computer monitor. We can use these to show you exactly what’s going on in your mouth.
By moving all of our imaging systems onto a digital format, we greatly reduce the amount of time it takes to get the information we need, and we can share it with other dental health professionals who are working on your case in no time.
Plasma Rish in Growth Factor
We have even found a way to help our patients recover more quickly from procedures that would otherwise take them many months to fully recover from - plasma rich growth factor (PRGF). PRGF and platelet rich plasma (PRP) are innovative new ways to stimulate the body to heal faster and more fully by generating new tissue more quickly. We can use PRGF/PRP to help patients heal from issues that involve soft or hard tissues. We derive the treatment solution for PRGF/PRP from your blood.
