3D scanning allows us to achieve the most advanced treatment possible. 3D scanning produces images of your teeth and jaws in the highest quality to review all angles of your condition. This also helps reduce the risk of surprises during surgery. When your condition can be viewed from all angles — especially the ones that are not visible on the surface — you can expect a more successful treatment. 3D scans are performed during your consultation appointment and play a key role in designing the treatment plan that is best for you.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
Every patient’s facial structure is one-of-a-kind. That means that every treatment should be designed to suit a patient’s unique facial anatomy. 3D scanning gives your oral surgeon important information about your condition that X-rays are unable to provide. This technology is beneficial to several oral surgery procedures, such as dental implant placement. 3D scanning allows for the most efficient and effective treatment possible.
Benefits of 3D scanning include
- Reduced radiation exposure over traditional X-rays
- Condition can be viewed from all angles, including what is not visible
- Improved treatment plans
- Lower risk of surprises during the procedure
- Images are immediately available for your oral surgeon to view and begin planning the best course of treatment
