For the past few decades, medical technology has witnessed major improvements at an incredible rate, one of them being the implementation of 3D dental imaging.
Dental imaging has been used by orthodontists for years to evaluate and record the size of craniofacial structures. Orthodontists commonly use 2-dimensional (2D) static imaging techniques, but with 2D imaging, it is not possible to obtain the deepness of structures accurately.
At Hallmark Dental Group, Saint George, UT, we employ 3D dental imaging or ConeBeam CT scanning that elevates dental imaging to the next dimension, giving an accurate picture of the mouth from all perspectives and in fine detail. 3D images, with their precision and accuracy, thus help our dentists identify potential problems & outline customized dental treatment plans.
With the 3D imaging system, your dentist can create either a 2D or a 3D image of the mouth, along with the scans of your tissues, bones, and teeth. The dentist can zoom in on the scan, view it at any angle, and look through the scan deeply. This enables the dentist to have a superior view of what they are diagnosing and visualize the patient's teeth, gums, roots, bones, and nerves precisely and in detail.
Dentists use 3D imaging in a variety of dental procedures, that includes the following:
Using a Cone Beam Computed Tomography(CBCT) machine, the dentist takes pictures of your teeth and jaw. This machine enables the dentist to better view your teeth by creating a 3D image to accurately plan effective treatment or diagnose oral health concerns. With a 3D scan, the dentist can see your teeth, muscles, nerves, and infection more accurately. 3D scans also help dentists catch minor issues before they grow into a problem.
