Mansfield Dentist Sees Success Using 3D Imaging

MANSFIELD, TX--(Marketwired - August 31, 2015) - Dr. Bret Sanders, a Mansfield dentist who provides dental implants, has seen great results since introducing a new 3D scanner into his practice nearly two years ago.

The Sirona 3D scanner allows Dr. Sanders to diagnose and plan out procedures for all of his dental services, including dental implants and restorative treatments.

"It has helped to enhance our diagnostic and treatment planning skills," said Dr. Sanders, owner of Sanders Family Dental. "We can see things with these images that we could never see with older technology."

Dr. Sanders purchased the new scanner to replace a panoramic X-ray machine that was more than 20 years old. He attended a dental summit put on by Sirona and found that the scanner could assist his practice in better treating his patients.

While many dental practices use digital X-rays, most do not have 3D scanners. Dr. Sanders said patients appreciate the dedication his practice has made to implement state-of-the-art technology.

"Everyone is blown away by the images they see on the screen. It gives several views on the main screen other than just a panoramic view," Dr. Sanders said. "This technology has given me so much more confidence when planning treatment. I can see exactly what I am getting into."

Sanders Family Dental, 1600 US Hwy 287, Suite 102, is a state-of-the-art office that offers general dentistry, restorative dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, sedation dentistry, dental implants and Invisalign as an alternative to metal braces.

Dr. Sanders has completed countless hours in continuing education and uses dental implants to replace individual teeth or entire arches of missing teeth. All on 4 dental implants, which are strategically placed in the mouth to support full arches of dentures, have become popular options for patients struggling with removable dentures. Dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth available in dentistry and can last a lifetime if cared for properly.

Dr. Sanders is an Arlington native who graduated from Bowie High School in 1981. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Arlington and received his dental degree from Texas A&M University Baylor College of Dentistry in 1989. Dr. Sanders opened Sanders Family Dental shortly after graduating from dental school. As part of its comprehensive cosmetic dentistry services, Sanders Family Dental provides Invisalign, a revolutionary treatment that allows patients to straighten their teeth without metal brackets or braces. Many working professionals and teenagers prefer Invisalign over metal braces because the procedure is virtually undetectable and noninvasive. Patients wear the Invisalign clear aligners for about 22 hours a day, but the trays can be removed for eating, cleaning and even special occasions. Sanders Family Dental uses CEREC technology to design and place all-ceramic crowns in one day and the Galileos scanner to view 3D images of patients’ mouths and oral cavities. Dr. Sanders uses the 3D images to map out dental implant procedures and diagnose dental issues.
