Dental patients in the Abilene Texas area have another reason to smile, thanks to an innovative procedure designed to improve the quality and delivery of dental implants.
Dr. Robert Leedy of Leedy Dental, recently completed an intensive, two-day training on 3D Edentulous, a pioneering approach to enhancing dental implants by using digital technology. This method not only improves the predictability of dental implants, it also cuts the estimated dental office visits in half, by using computer-assisted digital implant therapy.
“As a dentist, my patients’ needs always come first,” Dr. Leedy says. “This training allows me to improve their experience, both by reducing the time that they are in my chair, and also in the final outcome: the quality of their smiles.”
Dr. Leedy, also fondly known to his patients as ‘The Whistling Dentist’, offers high-quality dental care with a welcoming, outgoing team of professionals. While Leedy Dental has been using cutting-edge 3D technology, the recent training provides him with another set of tools to enhance patients’ experience. “This course gave us the knowledge to be able to use the technology we already have in our offices in a new way,” he states. “It allows us to be able to take a patient who needs implants to having teeth that are attached to implants in the same day.”
The 3D Endentulous course was held in Raleigh, NC by Dr. Tarun Agarwal of 3D Dentists and covered four treatment phases: diagnosis, surgery, prosthetic conversion and the final prosthetic.
Leedy Dental has been in practice for more than 30 years and offers general dentistry as well as cosmetic and implant procedures to patients in the Abilene, Sweetwater, Lubbock, Brownwood, and Stephenville region. To learn more about Leedy Dental, call 325-692-1501 or visit www.leedydental.com.
