State-of-the-Art Treatment  in a Comfortable Atmosphere

At our Orem office, we use a cone beam computed tomography (CT) scanner to create a three-dimensional rendering of your jaw. While planning your treatment, Dr. Burton and Dr. Rasmussen can place a dental implant into the digital version of your jaw to ensure the optimal placement. This system also allows us to more carefully plan wisdom teeth removal and other oral surgery procedures.
