The entire process of your dental implants can be significantly improved if you choose an implants dentist who uses the latest and most advanced 3D imaging. 3D CAT scan or cone beam technology can ensure that your treatment is streamlined for your optimal comfort and highest success. This advanced imaging system produces detailed digital images that provide three-dimensional views of all oral and maxillofacial structures. This comprehensive information on the anatomy of your mouth, face and jaw is an invaluable tool during the evaluation and treatment planning phase of your dental implants. Here are several benefits of using 3D scanning during your treatment:
Comfortable: Depending on the 3D scan model, you will remain seated or stand upright in this “open environment scan.” Patients benefit from greater comfort while dynamic pictures of your face and mouth are captured and transferred to a computer and displayed on a mapping tool. It can then be used for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment planning of your dental implants.
Very Safe: One of the biggest advantages of 3D Cone Beam imaging is the safety it provides with minimal radiation exposure. With a cone-beam rather than a medical “spiral CT,” the beam is focused to only one tooth. Radiation exposure is ten times less than past spiral 3D scans that require you to lie down in a tube.
More Precise: The precision of the 3D scan allows your dentist to conduct a virtual surgery before they even touch your mouth. This can reduce the number of surprises encountered during surgery and allows your dentist to view every minute detail of your nerves, bone arteries, sinuses, bone depressions, and more.
Fast and Convenient: 3D CAT scanning technology can take multiple pictures in just seconds. Not only do patients enjoy a faster x-ray experience, but they can do it without having to drive to an off-site x-ray lab or hospital/
