Computer Guided Implant Surgery
We use state-of-the-art technology including Computer Guided Implant Surgery to ensure the optimum results in patient care.
In the past radiographic images used to place implants were two dimensional providing a reasonable estimate of bone height. Often bone width was not determined until the bone was exposed during surgery sometimes resulting in compromised placement of the implant.
Computer Guided Implant Surgery gives very detailed 3-D visualizations and coupled with the appropriate software allows us to place implants with a level of precision that was unattainable several years ago. In addition, the surgical procedures can often be accomplished in a much more conservative procedure which involves greatly reduced discomfort, less treatment time and a more accurate final outcome.
Computer Guided Implant placement is the safest and most precise way to place dental implants.
The dental microscope greatly improves the dentist’s ability to see even the tiniest details inside a patient’s tooth. It magnifies vision up to 25 times that of the naked eye and is useful in both diagnosis and treatment.
It is an invaluable tool in endodontic treatment. The root canal procedure takes place in a very small area of the tooth where precise accuracy is necessary to navigate through the intricate roots and canals. Missed canals often mean unresolved infections, which may mean a repeat of the procedure.
Same Day Crowns Service
At Covington Complete Dentistry we have the technology to mill out a variety of crowns to fit a patient’s budget.

Within that time the patient will have a new crown ready to be cemented permanently, thus saving the patient considerable time and money traveling. We understand our patients’ time is valuable and have therefore invested in this new technology.

Low Dose Digital X-Rays
Dental x-rays (Radiographs) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Digital Radiography is a type of X-ray imaging that uses digital X-ray sensors to replace traditional photographic X-ray film, producing enhanced computer images of teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. This allows the doctors to get a much better view of your teeth and any potential dental conditions. The digital imaging software obtains a number of different views of your teeth to gain the best understanding of your situation and develop the most appropriate course of management.
Digital sensors are more responsive than film so that much less radiation is required to produce a digital image.

The current emerging standard of care in dentistry and dental implantology is the use of three dimensional x-ray studies. The 3-D images allow the doctor to collect the needed and highly valuable diagnostic information to best plan and deliver dental and surgical care. The 3D CBCT imaging system can be used for an array of applications, including: endodontics, implantology, surgery, fracture and orthodontics and TMJ assessment. The 3D images accurately show the patient’s anatomy, evaluate bone volume and quality. Extraordinary details are obtained at low exposure levels. A typical scan takes only 20 seconds.
The patient benefits from less radiation as well as the comfortable, open environment. Additionally, the doctor can share a visual diagnosis with patients, making them more comfortable with their treatment plan and actively participate in their care.
