Advanced Technology Meets Compassionate Care

In order to provide our patients with the highest level of care, each of our offices are equipped with state-of-the-art 3D imaging using the C3 9300 system. We also use vein illumination technology to ensure the safest surgical experience possible for our patients. These advanced technologies allow Dr. Lucas, Dr. Seghi, and Dr. Murnan to diagnose potential issues with improved accuracy, create detailed surgical plans and guides, and achieve predictable surgical outcomes.

We often take 3D scans during the initial appointment to assess your oral health and explore your treatment options. To schedule your consultation at Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Specialists of Cincinnati, contact our office in Cincinnati or Mason, OH, today.

Benefits of 3D Scans

3D scanning technology offers many advantages compared to traditional 2D scans and gives our oral surgeons the information they need to provide outstanding care.

  • Produces detailed images of the head, neck, mouth, and face that are viewable from virtually any angle
  • Reduces the risk of complications during surgery
  • Minimizes exposure to radiation
  • Your surgeon can diagnose health issues that may go undetected in a two-dimensional scan
  • One 3D scan takes only a few seconds to complete
  • We can instantly share these digital images with other members of your care team

How Are 3D Scans Used in Oral Surgery?

3D CT scanners provide crystal-clear digital images of the oral and maxillofacial regions. These images are an instrumental part in diagnosing oral health issues and creating treatment plans. 3D scans are used with a variety of oral surgery procedures, including:

  • Dental implants
  • Full-arch restoration
  • Wisdom teeth removal
  • Bone grafting
  • Oral pathology
  • Expose and bond
  • Pre-prosthetic surgery
  • Facial trauma

Our oral surgeons can use 3D images to create surgical guides, which indicate the exact position and angle to insert dental implants. Surgical guides also help avoid other facial structures, reducing the risk of surprises during surgery and increasing patient safety.

Some patients are more sensitive to radiation, including children and some adults. We always prioritize your health and safety and will only take 3D scans when it is absolutely necessary and safe to do so.

Vein Illumination Technology

Our offices are equipped with the AccuVein® system to significantly improve the accuracy of IV placement. This system uses near-infrared (NIR) vein visualization technology to show a map of peripheral veins on the skin’s surface. Using the AccuVein system, our team can rapidly identify optimal vein targets before placing the IV, increasing first attempt success rate and reducing discomfort for patients.
