What is 3-D dental imaging?

3-D dental imaging uses CT scan technology to rapidly create a three-dimensional view of the mouth and skull. It is most often used to plan dental implant treatments or other oral surgeries, but can also be used in the diagnosis of tumors and other oral illnesses.

You will stand for approximately 17 seconds while detailed images are taken of your mouth and jaw from all angles. These images are compiled into a high-quality 3-D image that your dentist can manipulate and zoom as needed. This process can dramatically improve the quality of planning required for major dental procedures such as implants, extractions and root canal treatments with only a fraction of the radiation exposure of traditional X-rays.
