Getting A Clear Picture
Dental 3D imaging refers to the use of advanced technology to create three-dimensional images of your teeth, gums, and jaw bones. This type of imaging provides a more comprehensive and accurate view of your oral anatomy, and at AMOS we use them for a variety of diagnostic and treatment planning purposes.
The most common type of dental 3D imaging is cone beam computed tomography (CBCT), which produces detailed, high-resolution images in a single scan. With this type of imaging, our doctors can get a clear and comprehensive view of your mouth, jaw, and facial bones.
Our fully digital AMOS offices offer you the opportunity for a streamlined experience, and give our doctors the capability to treat you effectively and efficiently. With AMOS, there’s no need to keep track of complicated paperwork and records.
3D imaging tools bring the latest technology to AMOS, providing our doctors with unmatched visualization of anatomical detail. This aids in treatment planning, and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. At AMOS we can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
During the scan, you will be positioned near the machine, which uses an X-ray beam to capture multiple images of your mouth from different angles. The scan process is typically quick and non-invasive, lasting only a few minutes. Once the images have been captured, they are processed by a computer to create a three-dimensional model of your oral structures which will be reviewed by your doctor to diagnose any dental problems and plan treatments accordingly.
