Understanding the Advantages of 3D Dental Imaging

understanding the advantages of 3d dental imaging

Here at North Brand Dental, we like to stay ahead of the game when it comes to the techniques and tools we use in our practice. We are constantly working on ways to make our patients experience with us pleasant and easy. Recently we have implemented a new 3D imaging technology that allows us to provide our patients with a more comprehensive evaluation and consultation process. We are one of the only practices in the greater Los Angeles area to implement an intra-operative navigation system. This allows us to precisely place the implants at the most desirable position. With the advent of any new technology, it’s important for dental professionals to consider not only cost and risks, but also the benefits of switching. In the case of 3D dental imaging, the advantages are clear, granting practitioners and patients alike a better clinical experience. Our surgical center features the latest state-of-the-art technology including 3D imaging and digital impressions. Our 3D cone beam imaging systems allows us to support a high level of patient care, as this system offers 3D computer generated scans in order to provide a detailed and advanced look at the teeth, nerves, bone tissues, with cross sectional and 3D views. This provides critical information that won’t be available with traditional dental x rays.

A dental 3D scan allows clinicians to view dental anatomy from different angles. A 3D scan can help gain a better view of bone structures, such as adjacent root positions, in order to locate canals and root fractures, as well as provide the ability to more accurately measure anatomical structures. These scans also supports a wide range of diagnosis and treatment planning, making them extremely flexible. Further, they increase the possibility of treatment success, granting practitioners greater predictability and confidence in preparing for extractions, performing root evaluations, and placing implants.

3D dental imaging also delivers the power of repeat-ability, providing fast and accurate imaging that’s consistent—and thus, reliable. Using a 3D dental scanner equips dental professionals with a comprehensive view, letting them see specific conditions in the region of interest to determine whether a treatment is necessary. Because details show up so clearly, patients can be more confident in a dentist’s decision. In addition, the use of dental imaging technology often creates a more comfortable and engaging dental visit for the patient.
