3D dental imaging is a full head and neck computerized tomography (CT) scan that allows the dentist to see the physiology and structure of the teeth in more detail. These thorough 3D scans will aid in the detection of future issues and the creation of highly personalized therapies to maintain your teeth healthy. A single scan can highlight the interconnectedness of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth, which can help in treatment planning and administration.
A cone-beam CT scan provides a three-dimensional view of the various portions of our patients' necks and heads, providing far more information than a standard two-dimensional x-ray. Unlike traditional x-rays, CT scans can distinguish between a variety of tissues, including bone, teeth, nerves, and soft tissues. The CBCT scanner spins around the patient's head to acquire up to nearly 600 individual images, which are subsequently pieced together to view as one continuous image during 3D dental imaging.
In our office, we use one of the newest and highest quality CT scan machines in the market (KaVo OP 3D). This CT scan unit has got multiple awards in innovations for panoramic, cephalometric and 3D imaging.
The KaVo OP 3D has won the German Innovation Award in 2018, which represents an externally recognised sign of innovation and quality.
A 3D dental cone beam CT scan is quick, painless, and non-invasive. From start to finish, a 3D panoramic scan of your head, neck, and jaw should take roughly 14 seconds. You will be asked to stand by your dentist, who will then position you so that you are properly centered. To help you stay placed and comfortable, you'll be requested to stand as still as possible while clutching the machine's grips.
