How X-Nav Works
With X-Nav Technologies, Dr. Clagett takes a special CT Scan of your jaw. From the CT scan, he creates a plan that allows for the Dental Implant to be precisely planned and placed. The accuracy of an implant being placed using the X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation is fantastic. It allows for the implant to be placed to .1mm and .1 degree of accuracy.
Traditional 2-D dental x-rays don’t provide a detailed look into the dental structure and bone. Dr. Clagett uses a Cone Beam CT to generate 3-Dimensional images of the dental structure and jaw bones. This enables more accurate diagnosis. The 3D image allows Dr. Clagett to see the whole picture, including the nerves, undercuts, and sinus height.
Dr. Clagett can look deeper and develop a more detailed understanding of the status or your oral health and any problems there might be. This increases the accuracy of diagnosis. This helps Dr. Clagett to recommend the best treatment for your health. The 3D imaging scan is often performed within minutes. We don’t need to refer you anywhere else to get the proper picture of your oral health. We have all the best equipment in the office.
Our office takes high resolution digital photographs of your dental structure. This not only helps Dr. Clagett diagnose accurately, it also helps you to better understand the status of your oral health and any problems that there might be. This is also helpful in communicating with your dentist for any ongoing care you will be receiving from your dentist.
Accurate diagnostic and imaging techniques help Dr. Clagett and you to make the right choice regarding your dental health. Better treatments improve the quality of your life and helps to improve your overall health and confidence.
