3D Printing

3D Printing is used in dentistry to create several different dental appliances such as night guards, surgical guides for precise implant placement, and dental models for ortho retainer and/or clear aligner fabrication.

Surgical Guides

A Surgical Guide is a cutting edge technological tool that assists Dr. Akhrass in the precise placement of a dental implant, in 3D, prior to your surgery.

A 3D x-ray and intraoral scan are taken to obtain a digital impression of the patients teeth. The files are then merged together, and the guides are developed using imaging software, which can then be saved into a 3D printable file. The surgical guide is then printed, IN OFFICE, to be used during surgery.

Please note, that most offices will chargeanywhere from $300-500 in addition to your implant surgery cost in order to take advantage of this technology. The Akhrass Dental Implant & Cosmetic Center does not charge this fee to our implant patients.

All on X

All on X is a procedure in which 4-6 implants are placed in either the upper or lower jaw. Design software is then used to create and then fabricate a temporary arch of teeth to be worn while the newly placed implants are integrating into your bone.

(Dr. Akhrass uses a highly sophisticated, extremely precise, dental 3D Printer, IN OFFICE, to create your temporary arch).

3D X-RAYS (Cone Beam CT)

A Cone Beam CT is a 3D x-ray that displays the underlying bone structure, as well as the nerve pathways and soft tissues. This is an excellent tool that is used in our office, not only for superior diagnostic ability, but also for placing dental implants precisely.

CEREC ( Same Day)

CEREC is another phenomenal technology that is implemented by the Akhrass Dental Implant & Cosmetic Center. CEREC is an acronym for:

  • Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics.

This technology is used to fabricate many different dental restorations, in office, SAME DAY, using a dental mill (a device that carves out crowns and/or bridges).
