3D Scanning

3D Scanning

State-of-the-Art Technology in Dentistry

One of the most advanced and reliable tools available in the oral surgery field today is the 3D scanning system. Our 3D CT scanner creates three-dimensional images of the mouth in high definition. This enables us to give the most accurate and individualized treatment plan possible to our patients. Knowing the exact anatomy of your mouth by using the 3D scanner allows us to create customized surgical models and guides to prepare for many treatment options, including dental implant procedures. In addition, this technology gives the oral surgeon the liberty to examine the precise condition of the mouth without the patient being physically present.

We will likely take 3D scans during the consultation appointment, which is also when you will meet with one of our skilled surgeons, go over your treatment options, and come up with the ideal treatment plan to improve your oral health and confidence.

Advantages of 3D Scanning

When you visit your general dentist, he or she will typically take 2D X-rays, which show a flat display of your facial structures. Traditional X-rays are great for checkups, but diagnosing and treating complex cases require a more detailed view. By using this technology in our practice, our surgeons are able to instantly view your facial anatomy from virtually any angle, as well as other benefits which include:

  • More accurate images than traditional X-rays
  • Greater knowledge of the patient’s anatomy, which reduces the chances for unexpected surprises during surgery
  • Quick and easy sharing of digital files between the oral surgeon and other dental care professionals, saving the patient time and unnecessary visits to various offices
  • Less exposure to radiation than X-rays
  • More accurate diagnosing produces more predictable results and surgical outcomes
