At Elevate Dental Implant Center, we bring cutting-edge dental technology to the Hanover, Maryland community. Our doctors stay up-to-date on modern dentistry advancements to ensure we are offering the most efficient and thorough dental implant services possible. When you visit our Hanover, Maryland dentist office, you may notice several equipment pieces you haven’t seen before in other dental practices. We are happy to answer any questions you might have about the technologies we utilize during your procedure. Some of our dental technologies include digital impressions, 3D imaging, advanced healing, virtual treatment planning, guided implant surgery, and laser technology. Below is some additional information:
ITero® Digital Scanner
We invested in the ITero® Digital Scanner to bring our patients a more comfortable dental impression experience. If you’ve ever endured a gag-inducing traditional impression, you understand why we would seek to help our patients avoid this. Using our intraoral scanner, we take digital impressions of your mouth instead of messy traditional impressions. These images are high-resolution, providing us with an accurate virtual rendering of your teeth and gums without any discomfort.
Cone Beam CT Imaging
Our practice utilizes Cone Beam CT Imaging to get highly precise 3D scans of your mouth, with significantly less radiation than traditional x-rays. When our doctors use this technology, it provides them with images they need to assist in planning for your surgery with extreme accuracy. They also provide us with clear insight into the health of your jawbone to ensure your dental implant restoration will be well-supported.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors
To accelerate your healing and recovery time after surgery, our practice uses plasma rich growth factors. Derived from a sample of your own blood, we use this plasma where bone and soft tissue healing is needed. This improves the healing process while minimizing post-operative pain, swelling, and risk for complications.
