Introducing: Air purification, ADVANCED IMAGING AND HEALING TECHNOLOGY

IQ Air HealthPro Plus

As surgical professionals, we are compelled to make every effort to reduce the transmission of disease or route of infection.  At Charlottesville Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we have taken necessary precautions in protecting our patients and staff from the transfer of infection by reducing the levels of bio-aerosols within our office.

Our offices purify our air with IQAir HealthPro Plus units.  These air cleaners utilize HyperHEPA technology as part of their filtration system. While most HEPA air purifiers can only filter fine particles down to 0.3 microns in size, IQAir’s patented HyperHEPA technology can filter particles down to 0.003 microns with a guaranteed minimum efficiency of over 99%.  HyperHEPA offers 100 times the air cleaning efficiency of traditional HEPA air cleaners and 10 times smaller than a virus.

And the HealthPro Plus doesn’t stop at allergens – this purifier also includes five pounds of activated carbon packed into and arranged in a V-shaped filter. The two-stage V5-Cell™ Gas and Odor Filter uses dual media to filter a wide spectrum of volatile organic compounds (the cause of odors) and other harmful chemicals. A combination of granular activated carbon adsorption and pelletized chemisorption work together to go beyond conventional activated carbon filters found in ordinary air purifiers, protecting indoor spaces from toxic buildups of gases and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

We have stayed away from the use of gimmicks like UV light disinfection, negative ionization, and particle “destruction,” all of which can introduce even more dangerous substances into your air.  The unrivaled performance of IQAir filtration technology is achieved using only safe, proven, mechanical filtration technology, without generating dangerous ions, ozone, or UV. The mechanical filtration used by IQAir’s particle filters remove particles from the air by safely capturing them on filter materials. Other air cleaning technology can be less effective, incorporate unsafe methods when IQAir offers proven protection without harmful byproducts. 

CS 9300 SYSTEM

The CS 9300 system gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Ibañez and Dr. Hill diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.

Our new 3D scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.

The CS 9300 system brings the latest 3D technology to Dr. Ibañez and Dr. Hill’s practice, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail aids in treatment planning and help us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. Dr. Ibañez and Dr. Hill can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.

L-PRF™ – MORE EFFICIENT HEALING

L-PRF™ is basically a bioactive “band-aid” that is created from your own blood and then placed in your surgery sites to promote healing.  A sample of your blood is collected in a tube, just as it would be for a blood test. Your doctor then uses the unique IntraSpin™ System to separate and concentrate certain important cells and active proteins by spinning your own blood in a dedicated centrifuge. After a fast preparation the bioactive clot, created just from your own blood, is now ideal for your procedure. 

When placed in surgery sites, L-PRF releases your body’s own natural healing proteins, creating a more efficient network for cells to enhance the healing process. Depending on your situation, your doctor may supplement your L-PRF clot with different biomaterials customized for your needs. For patients with significant bone loss, a combination of L-PRF and bone growth material may also be used to promote natural bone regeneration.

X-GUIDE™ DYNAMIC 3D NAVIGATION

X-Guide affords your implant surgeon the most accuracy during your procedure. For you, this means minimally invasive surgery thanks to smaller incisions, and therefore less pain, faster recovery, and ideal functional and aesthetic results.

What is X-Guide Dynamic 3D Navigation?
The industry-leading X-Guide® surgical system paired with Cone Beam 3D imaging allows your doctor to provide you with the most accurate implant surgery. With X-Guide Navigated surgery, your doctor utilizes live, 3D views of anatomy – it’s like real-time directions during your procedure to place the implant exactly where it should be. Your surgeon’s control and precision over the entire implant process is elevated.

How it Works

The surgeon will pre-plan the ideal implant location based on your unique anatomy using advanced software.  During your surgery, the doctor will utilize a small, lightweight X-Clip in your mouth that matches to this digital plan with a specialized radiation-free camera system.  During your procedure, the doctor has a 3D view of your anatomy including jawbone, soft tissue, surrounding teeth, as well as the digital treatment plan to follow.  The X-Guide navigation technology provides the surgeon with turn-by-turn guidance along the surgical path, like a roadmap on your GPS.  This is similar to the way medical neurosurgery has been done for years.

The Result: The ability to deliver a more desirable functional and aesthetic outcome in dental implant surgeries.
