Dental Exam Using 3D CT Scanning Lloyd Hannis|3D dental implant planning, dental exam, dental implants, english speaking, lima dentist
A thorough and in-depth dental exam takes about one hour and includes state of the art 3D imaging and high-resolution photos of all of your teeth. Why? Would you consider getting a knee or hip replacement without an MRI or a CT Scan? Probably not. Similarly, a proper and extensive dental exam should be taken seriously, using advanced technology and 3D imaging because this gives you a correct diagnosis with no margin for error, and makes sure that you are totally informed of all of your treatment options.
It is important to consider that a dental 3D CT scan provides a 3D image of the mouth and jaw that is much more detailed than traditional, flat dental x-rays such as bitewings or a panoramic and provides much better information for a higher standard of care.
The scanning process only takes about 9 seconds and provides our doctors three-dimensional and cross-sectional views of existing teeth, bone, nerves, and tissue.
Of course, if you are looking for dental implants and surgical procedures, then 3D scanning is even more important. This scan takes just two or three minutes to load and specially integrated software allows the doctor to check the best areas of bone for implant placement, where bone graft and tissue regeneration should be done, which implant size is best and the angle it must be placed at.
Every treatment plan is personalized and the doctor can offer different options if the first doesn’t fit with your plans.
Advantages of 3D CT Scanning:
- Examine cross sections of a patient’s bone structure to analyse the quality, volume, and density of the bone that will anchor the dental implant
- Determine all possible treatment approaches with risk factors for each individual patient
- Locate the precise placement and depth of implants
- Determine the proper type and size of the implants
- Locate and avoid sensitive areas such as nerves and sinuses
- Less radiation compared to a medical CT Scan
