“Hi, I am Dr. Bonilla, I would like to explain a little bit why people always asks us why we need an X-ray and it is not only an x-ray, it is a special CT scan, it is a treated tomography that allows us to not only show us how much bone you have and the quality of the bone is to plan ahead if it is possible to do implants or what will be the best procedures to be done.
So, now that we have this technology around in dentistry is something we have to take advantage. Before that, when we did not have a CT scan, we had to go in to a surgery and explore and see if there was enough bone to place the implants. Sometimes, we had a close and there was no way to place an implant in the area.
With this x-ray we are able to see before hand not only that plan, which kind of implants we need and to be able to have a more successful treatment at the end. So, that is why we need to have a CT scan.
In a lot of cases, you will need to do it before, if you want to be sure before you do the trip. But, in any case we have our own CT scan in Costa Rica and we are able to do all those measures once you are here. But, it is always important to know that without that, it is almost impossible to work without.”
CT scan or computed tomography is a special x-ray that is used to analyze the jawbone quality and its structure to receive dental implants. It uses a superior technology to generate 3D images of dental structures such as tissues, nerves and bones in a single scan.
The dental center in San Jose uses the SCANORA® 3D designed and manufactured by Soredex®. Some of its benefits include:
