Latest Oral & Facial Surgery Technology
Cone Beam 3-D Imaging
iTERO Digital Scanning
The scanning technology allows the doctors to simply scan the teeth using a laser, thus eliminating the need for dental impression “mold” material (which is messy, tends to cause a gag reflex, and often must be repeated several times). This makes it easier than ever to:
- Receive appliances that help in the treatment of TMJ and Sleep Apnea.
- Get the final crown on a dental implant: The scanning technology allows Ziad A. Ali, DMD, MD, Jason M. Marrazzo, DDS, Sang Y. Kim, DMD, MD or Jay S. Nokkeo, DMD to simply scan the adjacent teeth and abutment/Implant using a laser, thus eliminating the need for dental impression “mold” material (which is messy, tends to cause a gag reflex, and often must be repeated several times). The prosthetic/restorative doctor who works with Dr. Ali, Dr. Marrazzo, Dr. Kim and Dr. Nokkeo can now finalize the crowns on the dental Implants without the need for an impression visit at his/her office, a visit that usually also involves several other parts and pieces going in and out of the mouth. That entire visit is eliminated thanks to this cutting-edge technology.
Metal-Free Dental Implants
Drs. Ali, Marrazzo, Kim and Nokkeo are three of the few surgeons in the DC Metro area that have the capability of placing Metal-Free Dental Implants. These tooth colored Ceramic implants have some advantages in the aesthetic zone (front upper teeth) as well as in patients who prefer a metal-free option.
