3D Imaging

Dental 3D imaging is commonly used for diagnosing and  treatment planning of cases that involve:

  • surgical planning for impacted teeth.
  • diagnosing temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD).
  • accurate placement of dental implants.
  • evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity.
  • detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumors.
  • determining bone structure and tooth orientation.
  • locating the origin of pain or pathology.
  • hard to locate tooth fractures.
  • hard to locate canal systems.

Doctor Benefits

  • One scan provides you with significantly more information about your patient's anatomy and bone structure than traditional 2D films.
  • These distortion free images display implant site assessment, TMJ disorders, impacted teeth, critical bone and tooth relationships, mandibular canal and difficult to see pathologies.
  • Images can be easily viewed on a computer screen.
  • Patient's understanding of anatomy and the treatment plan leads to better patient acceptance.

Patient Benefits

  • The radiation exposure is less than a full mouth series and 95% less than a conventional CT scan.
  • Much more economical than hospital based conventional CT imaging.
  • It is quick, comfortable, and painless for the patient. Taken in an open upright chair, most scans are only 10 seconds.
  • The patient can more easily understand the problem and solution by viewing the 3D skull volume on the computer monitor.
