Computerized Implant Planning

Dental Implants are an exciting option in today’s dentistry.

At the office of Scott Hudimac, DDS, we’re adopted the best in technology and modern dental procedures to ensure the success and safety of your dental implant.

The History of the Dental Implant

Dental implants have been around for about 4000 years, dating back to ancient China. Yet, until recently, the exact positioning, depth, and angle of an implant all boiled down to simple guesswork.

This occasionally created problems for the patient, ranging from a mild irritation to a serious health concern. A bad implant procedure can lead to:

  • Useless/lost implants due to a failed bond
  • Nerve damage
  • Blood vessel damage
  • Sinus problems
  • Bone injury

The Safe Future of Dental Implants

At the office of Scott Hudimac, DDS, we don’t like risk, especially where our patients are involved. Therefore, we’ve advanced our dental implant services with the best technologies the 21st Century has to offer.

With the aid of a cone beam CT scan, we rely on in-depth 3D imaging to make decisions on your implant’s placement, reducing the chance of complications significantly.

We employ BioHorizons’ virtual implant placement software to analyze your CT scan, which then provides a variety of perspectives and views that simply would not be available without it.

For Dr. Hudimac, it’s all about safety and precision when it comes to our dental implants. Call us today at 724-537-5505 or contact us to learn more about our computerized implant planning services.
