Get 3D at the Dentist | Palm Harbor Dentist

When it’s time to visit the dentist for a checkup, the chances are pretty great that you will be getting some x-rays taken. Not only do they help your dentist find any issues that may be happening but can help to foresee any issues that may arise in the future. 3D ConeBeam Imaging is considered as such a technology that can help dentists do a lot more than ever before. The technology is fast, simple and completely non-invasive. All the patient has to do is sit in the dental chair. The dentist has a computer-generated view of the patient’s face, teeth and other important details from various perspectives. For dental practitioners, access to accurate and complete information is important in planning treatment. The use of 3D ConeBeam Imaging helps in providing that information, making it beneficial for both dental practitioners and patients alike.

Traditionally, dentists relied on x-rays focused on their patient’s teeth to create treatment plans. While effective, the process is not exactly foolproof and there have been many cases of unintentional lapses because of the limited information given out by x-rays.

With the 3D ConeBeam Imaging system, dentists have a more complete visual guide to study their patient’s case from just about any angle they can think of. Even better is that the scan data is easy to duplicate for storage purposes and to make it easier to send out to different specialists later on. Thanks to the more accurate, high-quality, detailed visual information produced by the imaging system, dentists have all the information they could possibly need to diagnose and plan out the proper course of action.

3D Images…at the Dentist? | Palm Harbor Dentist

It seems like everything is getting more realistic when it comes to the movies and shows we watch. The dinosaurs and aliens we seem like working actors because technology is so advanced, it’s difficult to tell the difference. But did you ever think this 3D technology was ever going to involve your dental visits? It’s true. Modern dentistry is slowly catching up to today’s technology and the use of 3D digital imaging being just one of the many new advancements.

It’s really great because it allows dentists a wide variety of perspectives of the face, neck and teeth, giving you a better diagnosis and making a more complete treatment plan. With 3D Cone Beam Imaging, dentists do a lot more than ever before. The technology is fast, simple and completely non-invasive, so there’s no need to worry. All you have to do is sit in the chair for a scan, and the dentist has a computer-generated view of your face, teeth and other important details from various perspectives.

The imaging system is basically an X-ray scanner, only it’s mounted on a rotating arm. While you sit in the chair, the scanner will move around your head to gather all the data necessary. There’s no preparation of any kind involved. The dentist can then call up any necessary view on a computer monitor. This accessibility makes it easier to see bones, teeth, airways, nerves, as well as tissues and see the relationship between them in order to create a more effective treatment plan.
