We offer state-of-the-art intra-oral scans with the iTero® Element 5D Scanner. With this technology, Dr. Weaver can create 3D images of your teeth in just a few minutes. This is a pleasant and precise alternative to the previous impression methods.

This scanner is used for all restoration impressions, such as crowns, bridges, and implant crowns, and for orthodontic treatments like Invisalign®. It is also used for creating digital plans for implant placement.

MoonRay 3D Printer

Digital dental x-rays

Digital X-rays

Dr. Weaver and our dental team prioritize your safety and well-being, which is why our Grundy Center dental practice uses digital X-rays for all procedures. Our digital X-rays reduce your radiation exposures by up to 80 percent, lowering the risk of complications. Furthermore, the images are of higher quality and instantly viewable on the screen.

Digital X-rays allow Dr. Weaver to show you your teeth and use this information to create your personalized treatment plan. To add more, it makes it easier to catch any dental issues allowing us to determine the best course of action to treat.

How a dental surgical guide fabrication works

Surgical Guide Fabrication

At Grundy Center Family & Implant Dentistry, Dr. Weaver takes very seriously the accurate and efficient placement of dental implants. To achieve this, he designs and 3D prints surgical guides. These help ensure that implants are placed with incredible precision and efficiency. A typical guided surgery results in an ideally-positioned implant placed in around ten minutes with very minimal invasion or discomfort.
