The basis of any gentle, complication-free and targeted treatment is a precise diagnosis of acute and chronic complaints as well as the determination of the individual anatomical characteristics of each individual patient. Like photos, conventional panoramic X-rays show only superimposed two-dimensional images of the very complex and varied three-dimensional jaw and facial structures and can hide pathological processes due to the superimpositions. As with photos taken with your mobile phone, you cannot make a person hidden behind a tree visible in the photo, and yet the person is there.
Surgeries and prosthetic treatments are precisely planned and simulated in advance on the basis of the precise three-dimensional image of the jaws and facial bones as well as the soft tissue of the face. Therefore, it is already known before the surgery where dental implants have to be placed in order to be able to later place crowns and bridges on implants in perfect cosmetics for a radiant smile. If there is not sufficient volume of bone for dental implants, an individually "tailor-made" and gentle surgical method can be selected and simulated before the surgery in order to fulfil your prosthetic wishes in the shortest possible time. In cosmetic facial surgery (e.g. nose corrections, chin corrections), the extent of the necessary correction for a harmonious face can be determined in advance.
Bone quality varies genetically and age-related from person to person. Lack of exercise, unhealthy nutrition and vitamin D deficiency have a significant influence on bone quality. The measurement of the jaw bone density with the 3-D scanner decides whether dental implants can be loaded immediately or whether a healing period of several months is necessary in order to guarantee a long-term durability of the implants.
