3D Imaging

3D imaging is an incredible improvement on the traditional x-ray. First and foremost, it dramatically decreases the amount of patient exposure to radiation. As its name implies, 3D imaging also provides more accuracy and efficiency in monitoring growth and detecting dental problems. The digital images capture the entire mouth and jaw from every angle. Popular 3D imaging systems include iCAT, CRANEX and GALILEOS.

Benefits of Dental 3-D Imaging:

Improved Diagnosis: CBCT images provide a more detailed and accurate view of dental conditions. Dentists can detect issues such as dental caries, impacted teeth, infections, and tumors with greater precision.

Enhanced Treatment Planning: Dentists can create precise treatment plans based on 3-D images, making it easier to perform procedures like dental implants, root canals, and orthodontic treatments. This level of accuracy leads to better treatment outcomes and shorter recovery times.

Reduced Radiation Exposure: While traditional dental X-rays expose patients to minimal radiation, CBCT imaging uses lower doses and still produces higher-quality images. This reduces the patient's radiation exposure while maintaining diagnostic accuracy.

Customized Restorations: 3-D imaging enables the creation of highly customized dental restorations like crowns, bridges, and dentures. Dentists can design these prosthetics with meticulous detail, ensuring a perfect fit and natural appearance.
