3D Dental Imaging
As part of our commitment to provide our patients with the best possible oral healthcare, we have invested in a state-of-the-art 3D dental imaging system from Planmeca. This dental technology not only provides a wealth of information, but it does so with the lowest radiation possible, and that’s important to us. In fact, we are a Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ certified practice.
Our 3D imaging system allows us to see your anatomy in three-dimensional detail. It can be enlarged, rotated, and divided in any direction, thus revealing critical information not always seen in 2D images. Having this kind of technology at our fingertips allows us to diagnose and treat a wide variety of dental-related issues with accuracy and predictability.
This advanced technology allows us to provide dental implant treatment here in our office. Dental implants are the next best thing to a natural tooth. They feel and function like your own tooth and support the health of the jawbone.
Taking an X-ray image with our new Planmeca unit is also a very comfortable experience. You can either stand or sit in the unit while the imaging carousel revolves around your head. It takes only a few moments, and for those patients who have a gag reflex, this offers an excellent alternative to sensors inside your mouth.
This system is intelligent. It has features not found on any other system that help elevate our patient care. For example, patients who find standing still to be challenging, our system compensates for movement during the scanning phase. This eliminates the need to retake an image.
If you’d like more information about our Planmeca 3D imaging system, please ask one of our staff members. We’re excited about this technology and continuing commitment to provide you with excellent dentistry and patient care.
