3D dental scans, also known as CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography), are the latest technology in medical imaging and allow dentists to get a thorough picture of what is going on in your mouth.
When undergoing a 3D scan, an x-ray arm rotates around your head and takes many pictures in various angles that then get sent to the computer and converted into 3D format. With this type of imaging, dentists are able to get a clear three-dimensional picture of all the vital structures in the oral cavity; teeth, bone, sinuses, nerves, vessels, etc.
3D scans are very useful in diagnosing and treating patients because of their extreme precision, accuracy and details. When treatment planning for surgery, sinus lifts, jaw reconstructions and implants, 3D scans are a great tool and have become a standard of care in our clinic.
