Dental 3D CT scanning provides a quick, detailed examination of your face, jaws, and teeth with no pain involved. The benefit of this scanning method over more conventional X-ray techniques is that it allows for the creation of three-dimensional, high-definition, and extremely accurate images. Patient safety is our top priority at Palmetto Oral & Facial Surgery, which is why we use cutting-edge technology like 3D CT images to better understand your condition and accurately visualize critical anatomical structures with the least radiation exposure possible. Having this three-dimensional information is crucial in making proper diagnoses and treatment recommendations.
Cone beam CT scans are critical in evaluating bone for implants, facial trauma, some cysts and tumors, locating important nerves in your jaw, and determining the location and position of wisdom teeth. Through the 3D cone beam CT scans, we can get the most accurate images without exposing our patients to the higher levels of radiation that come with conventional medical CT scanning technology. This expert imaging allows us to provide you with the most accurate diagnosis, properly prepare our team for your procedure, and avoid any surprises and unnecessary surgeries during treatment. These advantages often result in shorter operations and less risk of post-surgical complications. We always prefer to know as much as possible before surgery rather than learning during surgery. If you have not received a 3D scan prior to your consultation, you may receive this extremely beneficial image in our office.
