3D Comprehensive Scan / X-Ray
Another amazing dental technology that we are proud to offer at our office at 3D comprehensive scans and X-rays. 3D imaging gives us a more in-depth view of your mouth and allows us to understand the structure of your face, head, and mouth.
The technology of a 3D scan is traced back to its cone-like shape. The cone beam sends out beams at different angles and perspective, which gives us a 3D look at your mouth. Unlike other scans, 3D imaging can show us not just your bones and teeth, but also the tissue in your mouth. We are able to look closely at your scans, and even zoom in on and rate them. This helps us to get a better picture of how all the structures in your mouth, as well as your nerves and airway, relate to each other and make sure that they are functioning properly.
There are many benefits of 3D imaging. It can be used to help diagnose a wide variety of problems, including root canals, TMJ disorder, and sleep apnea. Getting the scan is quick and painless. The entire thing takes only a couple of minutes and requires no preparation. 3D scanning exposes you to less radiation than traditional scans. It also develops instantly and doesn’t require any processing time. Because these scans are digital, they are easy to archive and share with other doctors. They can be documented and referenced for years to come.
We utilize 3D scans because they are a safe and efficient way to better serve and diagnose you.
