Our Dental Technology in Owings Mills, MD
We provide different types of technology to diagnose and treat patients in our office:
3-D CBCT Scanning
Dr. Nova was one of the first dentists in the Maryland, DC, and VA areas to acquire a digital CBCT scanner and 3-D imaging software. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans take quick images of the mouth and jaw. CBCT scans create detailed images of the bone, tissues, and nerves in the mouth so we can easily diagnose patients.
3-D Guided Implants
Dr. Nova offers flapless guided dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth. This non-invasive treatment does not use flap surgery to access the jaw bone. Instead, Dr. Nova places the implant post directly in the mouth and uses a guide or stent to precisely place the implants. As a result, guided implants do not require cuts or stitches in the gum tissue. Additionally, Dr. Nova plans implant placement using scans of the mouth that create 3-D digital models of the smile. Dr. Nova places the implants using this model and computer-generated guide.
For the majority of our patients, we can provide same-day dental implants. To achieve this, we use 3-D digital technology and guides to precisely place implants in the mouth. Dr. Nova offers flapless implant surgery. In traditional implant surgery, flap surgery cuts the gums to form flaps and access the jawbone. Flapless surgery places the implant through the gum and bone. We can also perform a tooth extraction and place an implant on the same day.
Ankylos Dental Implants
Dr. Nova is a leading dentist for the placement of dental implants using a non-surgical technique. We also use the latest materials for implants including Ankylos implants. Designed to promote improved osseointegration and long-term stability, Ankylos implants are of the highest quality.
Compared to traditional dental x-rays, digital radiography offers safer and quicker results. Digital x-rays emit 80 percent less radiation than traditional film x-rays. We can also immediately see x-ray images with no processing times. Using digital x-rays, our team looks for problems in the tooth roots, bone, and gums.
Traditional dental impressions use bitter, messy putty. Alternatively, intraoral scanners take digital impressions to help us make dental restorations and provide orthodontic treatment. For example, we use intraoral scans to create digital models of the smile to better plan dental bridges, dentures, crowns, Invisalign, and implant treatment. Our team also sends these scans to dental labs to fabricate Invisalign aligners or restorations.
We keep digital patient records, which helps conserve paper and allows us to send patient information to dental labs and providers. With digital, paperless charting, we can easily access patient information and keep records and insurance information.
