Digital Technology

We believe in providing patients with treatments that last a lifetime. To ensure the success of your oral or maxillofacial surgery, the team at Lorton Springfield Dental Implants and Oral Surgery integrates advanced dental technology through each phase of your procedure.

Available Dental Technologies

From digital x-rays to 3D printing, our Lorton oral surgeon, Dr. Snehal Patel, is dedicated to making use of innovative technologies and techniques, ultimately providing patients with a better experience and lasting smiles. Technologies available at our Lorton and Springfield oral surgery practices include:

CBCT Scanner

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a powerful diagnostic tool that allows Dr. Patel to capture 3D images of your entire oral cavity including: soft tissues, nerve pathways, bone structure, and teeth. Given the comprehensive nature of this technology, our oral surgeon is able to strategically plan for complex procedures including facial and jaw reconstruction as well as dental implant placement.

TRIOS and iTero Intraoral Digital Scanners

Creating implant-supported restorations is a collaborative effort between your oral surgeon and general dentist. To ensure you receive the best restoration for your smile, our team utilizes iTero and TRIOS scanners as means of digitally scanning your smile to create your custom crown, bridge, or hybrid denture. By eliminating the need for uncomfortable traditional impression material, Lorton Springfield Dental Implants and Oral Surgery helps ensure a positive patient experience from start to finish.

3D Printing

Personalizing complex surgical procedures shouldn’t be a hassle. Rather than relying on traditional surgical guides, which can take weeks to be manufactured, our offices feature 3D printing. Through this extension of guided surgery, Dr. Patel is able to take the necessary scans, upload them to CAD software, then print a precise replica of your dentition in the same day. With 3D-printed surgical guides, patients benefit from first hand treatment explanations while our oral surgeon is able to proceed with the treatment planning process in a timely manner.

Intravenous Sedation and Outpatient Anesthesia

Keeping patients comfortable through every step of their treatment is among the most important goals of our practice. At Lorton Springfield Dental Implants and Oral Surgery, we are equipped to offer advanced sedation options, including IV sedation and general anesthesia. Combined with our emphasis on high quality care, our practice puts patient comfort and safety above all else.
