Dr. Kurt W. Kline uses the i-CAT® FLX cone beam scanner to evaluate your candidacy and treatment plan your procedure. The i-CAT® FLX uses conical x-ray waves to capture precise 3-D images of your teeth, gums, and jawbone in mere seconds. We use our i-CAT® FLX cone beam scanner to gather important data throughout treatment, allowing us to minimize complications and ensure successful treatment.
i-CAT® FLX technology allows us to use Simplant® and Tx STUDIO™ advanced software to create computer digital models of your teeth and jaws and determine the best implant placement strategy for your needs. This helps to make the procedure more efficient and effective. In addition, it allows us to virtually guide you through the treatment so you feel informed and know what to expect. Data information from the software provides Dr. Kline with the ability, in selected cases, to design and manufacture a surgical guide for precise placement of your implants resulting in a more efficient surgery with lower risks and beautiful results.
Radiography is one of the most essential tools in dentistry. It is especially important for implant placement, since it allows Dr. Kline and our team to better understand your jaw structure. We use digital x-rays rather than traditional film radiography because they develop immediately, are more precise, and can reduce radiation exposure by 90 percent.
If you have lost bone/soft tissue and a "graft" is necessary we routinely perform advanced tissue engineering to persuade your body to heal itself. It starts with a building material Scaffold (bone) which is shaped as needed, seeded from living cells via adequate blood supply and bathe it with Bioactive Modifiers to induce new bone formation.
We use implants with a series of precision-engineered cell-sized microchannels laser-machined on to the surface. Evidence based research has shown that Laser-Lok surface treatment attracts a true, physical connective tissue attachment, scientifically proven to reduce bone loss compared to traditional implants. This helps your smile remain beautiful over time.
