Cone Beam CT Guided Dental Implants

Cone Beam CT Guided Dental Implants

Cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) guidance is a new technology that allows Dr. Renato Aves of the Tampa Bay Institute of Oral Surgery and Dental Implants to build a three-dimensional model of your jaw and teeth. Using the latest nSequence modeling software and cone beam CT scans, Dr. Aves is able to plan complex dental restoration using dental implants before proceeding with actual surgical procedures. With software guidance and a specialized computer using CT technology, he plans the positioning of implants in relation to the bone and ideal tooth position. After planning your individualized CT guided treatment, Dr. Aves uses a surgical guide to drill into your bone tissue at the exact position and on the precise angle that has been planned for your ideal treatment. This assures the best final results for health, function, and the appearance of your smile.


“3D x-rays take the guess work out of implant surgery. Everything can be planned prior to surgery to obtain optimal result. There has been a paradigm shift in my practice ever since the CBCT was installed in our office,” say Dr. Renato Aves. “Investment in the latest 3D imaging and modeling technology—and rigorous training in its use means I can offer my patients the absolute best in dental implant planning and placement. In a single day, I can provide immediate hybrid dentures for a patient who has lost all teeth on one or both arches using Nobel Biocare® All-on-4™ and nSequence treatment modalities. This is one of my areas of expertise. “It’s like having a 3rd set of teeth giving you the confidence to speak and smile in public again. No longer do you have to look at a menu and decide on the foods you think you can chew. Now you can order what you actually want to eat! The entire team at Tampa Bay Institute of Oral Surgery and Dental Implants is highly trained in all aspects of your care. We are proud to offer Tampa Bay-Clearwater, Lakeland area residents cone beam CT guided implants. In my professional opinion, this technology is essential for restoration of edentulous patients.”
