A Blend of Innovation, Convenience, and Detailed Results
The people of Central Illinois mean a lot to us, and we want to provide exceptional care to every patient, every time. 3D cone beam computed tomography, or CBCT, helps us get the most comprehensive images of your mouth and jaws, which in turn help us develop an accurate and detailed treatment plan. It’s likely that you will need scans taken even if you have previously had X-rays taken because the three-dimensional images give us a more detailed picture of your condition and is viewable from every angle.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
Both the patient and our team benefit from utilizing 3D images during treatment. Other advantages include:
- Instant images resulting in quick and effective treatment
- Fast, noninvasive scans
- Decreased radiation exposure (as opposed to X-rays)
- A clear look at your entire facial structure
The Advantages of 3D Scans and Oral Surgery
Making sure you feel comfortable, safe, and properly cared for is our highest priority. Our practice also utilizes surgical planning software for the fabrication of surgical guides. This is immensely useful when developing treatment plans for dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, trauma treatment, and corrective jaw surgery.
Using 3D imaging, we can provide you with excellent care, personalized treatment, and optimal results. Our offices are also equipped with TRIOS® intraoral scanners, developed by 3Shape. This award-winning scanner is used to create surgical guides for implant placement, as well as planning for orthographic and reconstruction. You can read more about TRIOS on the official 3Shape website.
