The Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons at Argyle Associates have employed digital dentistry technologies such as digital radiographs, intraoral digital scanners, computer aided design, computer aided manufacturing as well as computer guided dental implant, orthognathic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. Through the deployment of these technologies, the Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons at Argyle Associates are able to provide a better experience to their patients. As new technologies become available, we carefully evaluate and employ them when appropriate.
