What Is This Technology?
3D dental imaging technology is a diagnostic tool that gives dentists a detailed look at your teeth, gums, and the underlying bone structure. We use Cone Beam Computed Tomography or CBCT machine. The scan provides a detailed 3D image of your mouth.
This is a much more detailed view compared to traditional X-rays, which allows our dentists to find the root cause of your problem easily. The imaging process doesn’t take a lot of time and can shorten the treatment duration by a considerable margin.
What Are The Benefits?
In increasing number of dentists are adopting this particular diagnostic tool because it allows them to help their patients better. Here are some of the biggest advantages of this tool:
- The imaging equipment is able to scan the entire mouth instead of just a small section of it.
- 3D dental imaging is much more precise, which reduces the possibility of errors during the diagnosis process.
- The 3D imaging technology provides an in-depth look into a patient’s mouth. This allows our dentist to determine the root cause of the problem and form a more accurate diagnosis.
- It is easy to carry out an in-depth scan of a specific area of the patient’s mouth.
- Dentists can control the quality of the image, which is an added advantage during the diagnosis process.
- The scanner Can Pass Soft Tissue Like Gums And Skin Easily To Provide An Inside Look.
- Patients Aren’t Exposed To As Much Radiation As They Would Be If The Dentist Used An X-Ray.
- A Single Scan Produces Multiple Images.
All Of These Advantages Make The 3d Scanner An Ideal Choice For Modern Dentistry Procedures.
What Are Its Applications?
3D imaging technology is used in various treatments as a diagnostic tool. Whenever the dentist requires in-depth information regarding the patient’s teeth to provide treatment, they use 3D imaging. Here’s a look at the applications:
- Implants – A dental implant needs to be placed in the right position for the best results. 3D imaging technology can help with this process. Dentists can determine the right position for the implants during a single fitting session, which saves a lot of time and effort. Our dentist can install the implant with a much higher degree of accuracy thanks to imaging
- Restoration Treatments – If a patient requires extensive restoration or correction, a 3D imaging tool is essential. This imaging technology allows our dentist to plan a complex restoration process accurately. We use this technology in many different kinds of treatments like root canals, bone grafts, inlays, onlays, etc.
