At Stovall dental, we prioritize the satisfaction and comfort of our patients. Each set of dental implants is customized to fit their exact needs and help them achieve their smile goals. We use a variety of advanced dental technologies to ensure your dental implants are placed as accurately as possible so that your implants can last a lifetime.
High-Quality 3D Pictures with CBCT Imaging
Whether you’re receiving a single dental implant or a full arch of them, it’s crucial that each one is the correct size and shape to match your smile. We use a cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) system to take quality 3D images of your teeth.
This imaging system rotates around you, delivering an accurate 360 view of your jaw. These images include not only your teeth but also your gums and nerves. CBCT imaging also allows doctors to see exactly where each dental implant should be placed to make sure the procedure runs smoothly.
Advanced Sedation Dentistry
If you’re someone who gets nervous at dental appointments, Dr. Stovall will provide you with our sedation technology. This medication will relax you and ensure you’re completely comfortable during your treatment.
We offer multiple forms of sedation to make sure you receive the best option to fit your needs.
Depending on the procedure and your level of dental anxiety, you’ll be administered one of the following forms of sedation:
- Nitrous sedation — this is also known as laughing gas and is given through a mask that goes over your nose
- Oral conscious sedation — you’ll receive one or more pills to take to make you feel relaxed
- IV sedation — this form works the quickest and puts you such a relaxed state and may even cause you to dose off periodically
Frequently Asked Questions
Are CBCT scans safe?
At Stovall Dental, our professional dental staff is passionate about providing you with safe and comfortable care. That’s why we use CBCT scanning to take accurate images of your gums, jaw muscles, and nerve endings. This technology exposes you to 10 times less radiation than medical CT scans. If you have any questions or concerns about cone-beam scanning, we’ll be more than happy to address them during your consultation.
Do you need sedation for dental implants?
While it’s not always necessary for our clients to use sedation for their implant process, many patients find it helps them relax. We offer several different types of sedation for your treatment alongside local anesthetic for pain during your procedure.
If you’re prone to anxiety and discomfort when visiting the dentist, talk to our doctors about dental sedation. We’ll work with you to find the best solution for your nerves about the implant process.
