Our Dental Technology in Sebring, FL
Advanced Equipment, Premium Results
When you choose Heartland Periodontics for your dental implant treatment, you’re investing in two things:
- Dr. Michael Kirsch, an expertly trained dentist with the experience and passion for understanding your concerns, acting accordingly, and producing beautiful restorations.
- State-of-the-art technology, which will be beneficial to you because it decreases your overall treatment time, increases the precision of your procedure and identifies any possible issues before they get out of hand.
While many dentists can place a dental implant, it takes a masterful dentist like Dr. Kirsch to create stunning restorations with the potential to last a lifetime. Below we discuss the remarkable equipment that aids our implant treatments.
Our office uses the latest in digital x-ray technology. It creates a detailed image of your entire oral structure, and it plays an integral role in the dental implant treatment planning process. Compared to traditional x-rays, our digital version reduces your radiation exposure by as much as 90%.
Placing dental implants requires accuracy and precision. Our digital x-ray machine provides the information needed so that Dr. Kirsch can identify the perfect position in your jawbone for the implant.
Vatech® CBCT Scanner
CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) is a machine that allows us to capture a three-dimensional image of your smile. The device works by taking x-rays that follow a cone-shaped path. After about 90 seconds, the x-rays are collected and combined into a single comprehensive image.
Dr. Kirsch can use a 3D view of your smile to find the ideal area of your jawbone to support a dental implant. If the image shows that your jaw is too weak at the moment for implants, we can complete a variety of supplemental treatments to restore soft or hard tissue — whichever you need.
With an advanced CBCT scanner from Vatech, we can use its different modes to create a more precise, lower-dosage experience for all of our patients.
Our high powered, ceiling-mounted dental microscope assists implant treatments by providing Dr. Kirsch with an in-depth view of the surgical site when placing dental implants.
For example, some patients suffer from malocclusion (misaligned teeth) but need to restore their smiles with dental implants. In this case, our dental microscope helps us navigate the adjacent teeth, and allows Dr. Kirsch to secure the implant in their jawbone without damaging or irritating the nearby teeth.
