At our practice, it is important that every patient receives the safest and most accurate assessment of their oral health and anatomy so that Dr. Williams can develop personalized treatment plans and detailed surgical guides for the most exact and least invasive surgeries possible. We accomplish this with the use of three-dimensional digital imaging using Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT. CBCT technology goes far beyond traditional X-rays to provide three-dimensional, high-definition, and extremely accurate images with the lowest level of radiation possible. This technology also allows us to instantly and easily share your images with your referring doctor so that the entire medical team involved in your care can collaborate effortlessly. If you haven’t received 3D imaging before your initial consultation, you may receive it in our practice.
Whether you are undergoing wisdom teeth removal, precision dental implant placement, or many of the other procedures we provide at our practice, 3D digital diagnostic technology may be used to plan your surgery.
Benefits of 3D Imaging
3D imaging technology provides comprehensive digital information about your individual anatomy and condition, with far more detail than traditional X-rays. Benefits of 3D imaging include the following:
- Exposure to a fraction of the radiation compared to traditional X-rays
- Extremely detailed digital images of your anatomy and condition, viewed from every angle
- Improved diagnostic capability for efficient surgical planning and an easier, safer, and less invasive surgery
- Images that are instantly available for your oral surgeon to view and share with other members of your care team
3D digital imaging is an important tool that oral surgeons use to plan efficient and precise procedures for the very best surgical results.
