Once you see the new technology alone at Peak Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (OMS) center, you will never have a fear about dental/oral surgery. If you have been referred by your regular dentist to have a procedure done with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon you might be feeling a bit anxious and scared. Any surgery can be cause for concern, so that is understandable. You will be under anesthesia while a person is cutting into your body and moving things around. Yes, surgery should make anyone nervous. But once you see the types of tools and the technology that allows the surgeons to see so much more than just what they can with their own eyes, you will feel confident that nothing can go wrong and there will be minimal cutting and prodding.
Oral and maxillofacial surgeons are dentists first and surgeons second, so they know all things relating to the teeth and gums but also know how to get into your jaw bone to fix larger problems. So don’t feel like you are just being sent off to a person that knows nothing about your dental state. OMS specialists use something called Cone Beam CT scanning to better diagnose and treat conditions. This particular kind of CT scan provides clear and precise images with less radiation, which allows Dr. Noori and the Peak OMS team to work more effectively at correcting the problem in less visits. Because it is a 3D scanner, it allows the use to choose the particular field to view, which is called a scanning area, to better identify the issue and get a closer look. When the image best suits the person, the mouth, and the condition, a specific treatment is easier to determine and carry out. Once the problem is identified, “virtual surgery” can be performed first to ensure that the procedure will work and how it will play out. With this type of innovative technology, you can be sure that Dr. Noori and the team and Peak OMS are providing the best possible care. They can use this scan technology to see your unique anatomy clearly and without doing any cutting so that a precise line of treatment can be laid out before you even go under. These images can also be shared with your doctors and dentist so that they can also utilize them to provide care and follow up down the line. Dr. Noori prefers to work with your regular dentist during most procedures so that they can outline a care and recovery plan that both are behind. Collaboration on care is the best thing for the patient because it means you have your whole medical team on the same page when it comes to treatment. So don’t be anxious about getting oral and/or maxillofacial surgery when you are in the best hands possible at Peak OMS. They will assess the issue and provide a full treatment plan by using the latest technology in scanning so that you have a minimally invasive and successful surgery.
