Why 3D Technology is Revolutionizing Cosmetic Surgery
At Dallas Surgical Arts, we pride ourselves on offering effective treatments and accurate surgical results by using the latest technology available. In the field of cosmetic and oral and maxillofacial surgery, 3D technology is revolutionizing the surgical planning process. The virtual surgical planning software used by board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Randy Sanovich creates highly accurate models of a patient's soft tissues and bone structure. Dr. Sanovich can use these scans and images to simulate the outcome of a procedure before it is even performed.
Another advantage of utilizing 3D technology is that it allows Dr. Sanovich to identify any potential concerns as well as treatment plan solutions before the surgery, reducing the risk of complications. Virtual surgical planning technology is also an excellent tool for patient education, as it allows patients to see an accurate projection of post-operative results. These visual aids help communicate the surgical plans effectively to alleviate any anxiety, set realistic expectations, and give patients a better understanding of the procedure and its outcomes.
CBCT Imaging with I-Cat
Our office is up to date and uses the latest devices, including our cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), called the I-Cat. This machine is able to capture a variety of images, including panoramic, cephalometric, and cone-beam for Dr. Sanovich to evaluate. Additionally, our CBCT has improved safety features as it emits less harmful radiation when compared to outdated machines.
ITERO Digital Scan
The Itero digital scan is another intraoral scan that we use to create a digital model of a patient's bite. With this technology, we are able to design custom surgical guides for procedures like genioplasties and orthognathic surgeries.
Vectra 3D Imaging
Vectra 3D imaging is an imaging software that can convert 2D images to a digital 3D rendering of a patient's face to simulate the surgical planning process. Dr. Randy Sanovich uses this imaging software to plan rhinoplasty, genioplasty, facial implants, and orthognathic surgeries.
