Three-dimensional scanning (3D scanning) ensures you receive the most comprehensive treatment possible. These high-quality images of your teeth and jaws allow your oral surgeon to view your condition from all angles and anticipate any challenges that may arise. 3D scans help your oral surgeon design the best treatment plan for you. They are performed at your consultation appointment and are beneficial for several different treatment plans.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
Everyone’s facial anatomy is different. 3D scanning provides detailed information that X-rays cannot, and allows your oral surgeon to approach your condition from every angle. 3D scanning assists in the treatment of many oral surgery procedures such as dental implant placement, orthognathic surgery, facial trauma treatment, and more. With 3D scans, patients can achieve their best result by allowing the most efficient treatment possible.
Benefits of 3D scanning include
- Improved pre-surgical planning
- Lower risk of surprises during the procedure
- Complete view of facial anatomy
- Decreased radiation exposure compared to X-ray
- More efficient treatment
3D scanning provides a comprehensive view of your face and jaws. Once the 3D scans are taken, the high-quality images will be ready for your oral surgeon to review at once. The images are gathered into a single movable image so that your oral surgeon can plan the most effective treatment.
