Typical dental x-rays just focus on your teeth, and for each x-ray picture, you need one exposure. So it would take many exposures to even begin to compare to a single 3D scan. But 3D imaging shows much more than simple “flat” x-rays. This new technology provides more complete visual information to study your case from every angle. Best of all, the original scan data can be duplicated anytime, to provide different specialists with images if needed later. And, there’s no film to get lost.
Whether you’re just beginning treatment or evaluating the results, 3D x-ray images give your doctors more of the high quality, detailed visual information they want for diagnosis and planning. More complete information is a vital key to improved patient care. And for you, it can mean more confidence and satisfaction in your treatment.
