CBCT 3D Scanner
When it comes to living a healthy life, few things are as important as ensuring that your teeth remain strong and healthy. In fact, you need your teeth to work well in order to do things as vital as speaking or eating. You also want to be able to do these things without fear or pain, which means that staying up to date with us and coming in for regular visits. Not doing so can lead to oral health problems that might be costly to fix – and this is especially burdensome when you realize that these issues could have been detected right away using the advanced technology currently available to dentists. At Canyon Oral & Facial Surgery, we are proud to be able to offer CBCT 3D scanning to our patients.
What is CBCT 3D scanning?When it comes to finding problems in your teeth, X-rays and CT scanners have long been the tool of choice. The images generated by scanning your teeth have been invaluable in helping us to see exactly what is going on inside of your teeth, and enable them to detect issues that might not be visible to the naked eye alone. Today, there is an even more useful option out there.
3D scanning, unlike traditional CT scanners, works with CT technology that produces cone beams. This enables us to receive crystal clear and precise digital images of your teeth while reducing the amount of radiation to which you are exposed during the process. This is possible because 3D scanning can be used to scan a more specific area of the mouth than ever before, which makes finding potential issues much easier than it has been in the past. This also means that we can provide treatment options that are more specialized and precise.
What are the benefits of using CBCT 3D scanning?Using 3D scanning helps us to provide better care for your specific dental needs. The 3D imaging makes it possible to carefully scan your teeth and find even small issues that would otherwise be hidden away. This also makes it possible to treat your issues with more precision than was possible in the past thanks to the clear images the 3D scanner provides. Additionally, because we direct the scanner to a specific portion of your mouth or jaw, we can get images that are more detailed and that offer a more comprehensive glimpse of the area.
3D scanning also means that you spend less time in our office waiting for a diagnosis and a treatment plan. The anatomical detail that is displayed in these images helps us quickly and accurately map out a treatment plan that will fix the issue in question, which means that you will end up sitting in the chair for a much smaller amount of time than if we used other imaging means.
