& The Power of 3D CBCT Technology
What Is CBCT?
CBCT stands for “cone beam CT scan.” It combines a 3D mouth scanner with state-of-the-art translation software to generate a 3D image of your mouth. CBCT is a little bit like a traditional CT scan in that regard, but it protects your health by minimizing the amount of radiation you’re exposed to by 70%. Since too much radiation exposure can have side effects our goal is to reduce yours to levels that are “as low as reasonably achievable” without sacrificing the benefits of generating these highly precise images of your jaw bone and mouth structure.
Like having an X-ray, having a cone beam CT scan is completely painless. You simply sit down and the cone beam takes the scan.
What Can Happen if Dentists Rely on a 2D Image?
Using 2D images increases the likelihood of complications, placement problems, and other cosmetic issues. Often, the implant will be placed by an oral surgeon while the crown will be placed by a dentist. Miscommunications and misunderstandings can arise when these professionals are conferring over an incomplete image, especially if they happen to be located in different offices.
Miscommunications can lead to unsightly gaps between the crown and the gum line. A lack of information can also lead the oral surgeon to damage delicate anatomical structures simply because he must rely, at least in part, on guesswork.
At Dental Depot’s Family Dentistry and Implant Center, our integrated team includes a general dentist, oral surgeon, and prosthodontist (implant specialist who places the crown), working side-by-side in the same office to provide you with the most comprehensive and cohesive care team available.

Custom Made for Comfort and Quality
When a patient decides to receive dentures as their teeth replacement option, the process to fabricate them is very detailed and intricate so that his or her new teeth are customized to look and feel natural. Since everyone’s oral anatomy is unique, customization of prosthetic teeth is essential for increasing oral function and restoring smiles. From the size of one’s mouth to the shape and thickness of their jaws, dentures must be tailor made.
The process for creating dentures begins with taking pictures, X-rays and impressions (molds) of jaws and any existing teeth. Once this is complete, our dentists will determine the unique measurements of the denture(s). These specifications will then be sent to a dental laboratory where the full or partial denture will be created by skilled technicians.
In the interim, while patients are waiting for their new teeth, they may be given temporary prosthetics to wear. Once the dentures are ready, they will be sent to our office and patients will return for a final fitting, and if there are any issues with the way dentures fit, adjustments will be made.
In addition to being custom made, dentures are crafted from very high quality materials to help lend a natural appearance and improvement to one’s smile. Porcelain is used to mimic lost tooth structure while pink-colored acrylic is used to resemble gum tissue. The pink colored portion of dentures is important for creating a seamless transition from natural gum structure to prosthetics.
Scheduling a Tooth Replacement
Dr. Knox was professional, compassionate, and skilled. His assistant talked me through everything. I had a wisdom tooth removed and a cavity filled. I have made plans to have a dental implant with Dr. Knox as well. They are very fairly priced.
The staff is very friendly and my dentist is kind and patient man. Dr Bohle worked on my implant and the experience was pleasant. He was very informative and was talked me through everything that would go on. If you need dental work done I could not recommend a better place.
There are certain things in life that you don't like, but you have to do it anyway. Like eat liver when your mom serves it, like go to work every morning, and go to the dentist twice a year for a checkup. If you do, your teeth will last you a lifetime. But if you don't, you'll end up with Dentures or implants. Natural teeth are a lot cheaper. Give this place a chance I think you'll be happy with results.
Dr. Bennet Parks is a amazing The team is excellent! I'm very happy to work with such great people. I've had my teeth cleaned, and dental implants! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Whether you realize it or not, your teeth can tell your dentist a lot about you. Like the investigator on a good crime show, your dentist can look at your teeth and almost instantly identify a host of indicators about your health and lifestyle. Oral health and overall health go hand in hand, and how

I was referred by a family member. Upon arrival, I was immediately impressed by the welcoming feel of the entrance. The front office staff were polite, professional & also welcoming.
I must also admit that I absolutely LOVED all of the trains that run throughout. I was not expecting to see the trains.
All of the staff including the dental assistants, hygienists, & the dentist made me feel....

We had a great experience at Dental Depot @ 21st and Sheridan! The dentist was friendly and knowledgeable. My boys loved the trains inside and outdoors. And they did a great job cooperating, partly due to friendly staff and also because we practiced saying "ah" and talked about what would happen beforehand. We can't wait to go back!
