Periodontist in Berkeley, CA, Dr. Keith Chertok, Invests in Modern Technology, Makes Treatment More Comfortable and Predictable

BERKLEY, Calif., May 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Dr. Keith Chertok improves treatment planning and the overall patient experience with a new, leading-edge intraoral scanner. A trusted periodontist in Berkeley, CA, Dr. Chertok recently invested in the 3Shape TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner. This state-of-the-art technology improves the precision of dental implant surgery along with increasing patient comfort during the diagnostic and planning phases. With this intraoral scanner, modern dental implants, and his periodontal expertise, Dr. Chertok and his team are able to offer patients a chance to restore their smiles in just one day with immediate load dental implants.

In the past, patients were required to receive messy, gag-inducing impressions. These were uncomfortable and left patients with a bad taste in their mouths. Now, with the TRIOS 3 by his side, Dr. Chertok can offer a modern, quick, and convenient alternative that captures a highly accurate digital impression instead.

This digital impression is taken using a small, wand-link device. After just seconds scanning the mouth, it can re-create the exact shape and look of both the teeth and gums. The digital, three-dimensional re-creation can be shown to patients on a screen in their treatment room to better understand their oral health, and their recommended treatment plan.

As a digital impression, these scans can be combined with cone beam CT imaging and TRIOS software for accurate and calculated dental implant planning. Digital planning and physical surgical guides eliminate the guesswork associated with dental implant surgery for single and full mouth dental implant cases. Considering bone density levels and nerve positions, guided surgery ensures implants are placed precisely as planned and in the ideal location for lasting stability.

As Dr. Chertok states, "Guided implant surgery offers more predictable, less invasive treatment and a more comfortable experience for patients overall."

Dr. Chertok's dental implant surgery planning also keeps the look of the final esthetic smile in mind from the beginning considering the shape and size of the new teeth as well as an even gum line. Facilitating more than just an esthetic smile, these intraoral scans also help make same-day dental implants possible.

Dr. Chertok can remove damaged or decayed teeth and strategically place a dental implant that is capable of holding a new tooth in just one appointment. After the implant is placed, a digital scan is taken using the TRIOS 3 intraoral scanner. This can be immediately sent to a specialized lab to make a temporary tooth in just one day.
