Dr. Maclean is a world leader in dental implant technology. He has a deep, intuitive understanding of how dental technologies can be used, and how they can be used together, to provide the best dental implant and cosmetic solutions for patients. A true pioneer, Dr. MacLean has taught millions of dentists around the world how to get the most out of technology. His innovations include increased implant placement accuracy, safer procedures, increased ease of treatment, and protection of nerves during implant placement.
In his state-of-the-art, in-office dental laboratory Dr. MacLean uses his comprehensive knowledge of the most advanced dental technology to give his patients the best possible treatment outcomes.
Technology and systems we use
CBCT 3D X-ray
CBCT 3D digital X-ray provides a three-dimension computer model and image of the teeth, jaws and lower part of the skull. This model and image can be rotated and manipulated to enhance diagnosis, and it can also be used as part of the digital workflow in the design and placement of dental implants and restorations.
Using a digital intra-oral scanner, we can scan your teeth and create a precise 3D computer model of your teeth. This technology replaces the impression trays traditionally used in dentistry. The 3D models are used to aid in the design and creation of dental restorations such as crowns.
Dental 3D printers are similar to commercial 3D printers and are used to create a variety of dental products such as surgical guides and prosthetics. The printer enables a very high level of precision which enhances treatment outcomes.
Dr. MacLean lives in the digital workflow on a daily basis. He considers this work dental artistry and is thrilled to be able to teach this to others around the globe. The digital treatment workflow is a tool used to plan dental implant cases. In a nutshell, digital workflow refers to the coordination of dental systems and software to improve patient outcomes through faster, safer, and more accurate implant placements.
