Dr. Derrick Johnson, general dentist in Mountain Home, AR, now uses a 3D digital x-ray to create advanced treatment plans for patients who need dental implants. 3D Owandy for virtual surgeries provides a platform for greater precision with dental implant placement compared to traditional radiological procedures.

Mountain Home, AR (PRWEB) June 27, 2014

Traditional film x-rays expose patients to greater amounts of radiation and require a good deal of time to take and develop. General dentist in Mountain Home, AR, Dr. Derrick Johnson, now provides 3D Owandy digital imaging for his patients, creating high definition and low radiation x-rays in a fraction of the time. With 3D x-rays, patients are able to receive the most effective treatment plans for dental implants and other dental procedures.

The radiation exposure from a 3D Owandy x-ray is up to 10 times lower than exposure from traditional x-rays, and the length of time for each scan is significantly less, reducing the amount of time necessary for any visit. As a general dentist in the Mountain Home community, Dr. Johnson is concerned about his patients and wants to provide the highest level of care for all dental procedures. Using the 3D Owandy for virtual surgeries, he is able to deliver safe and advanced dental care.

Patients needing dental implants benefit from the 3D Owandy digital x-ray system because the images provide a clear picture of nerve positions and orientation, as well as other critical structures. The accuracy and detail allow Dr. Johnson to choose the best size, type, and placement for each implant. In addition to these benefits, Dr. Johnson is able to assess and minimize any potential risks involved with the placement surgery so that healing time is reduced.

In addition to creating a better process for dental implants, the 3D x-rays allow Dr. Johnson to identify issues such as impacted teeth, bone loss, infections, and tumors, as well as analyzing TMJ disorders and airway blockage issues. The panoramic, high definition scans give a complete picture of problems to minimize pain and discomfort during the visit and ensure treatment success.
