3D Scanning

3D scans, also known as cone beam CT scans, utilize state-of-the art technology to capture three-dimensional representations of your bone structure.  This can provide Dr. Johnson with vital information to assist them in planning your oral needs.  Common conditions that may benefit from cone beam scans include:

  • Planning for dental implants or bone grafting
  • Difficult tooth extractions, particularly third molars (wisdom teeth)
  • Suspected pathology such as infected or cracked teeth
  • Impacted teeth

Patients can take advantage of a more complete dental treatment with our Planmeca 3D imaging.  Special features for patients include:

  • One, 20-second scan that provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
  • A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
  • Increased comfort — patients are seated in an open environment with plenty of space
  • A more cost-effective imaging system
  • Doctors can easily share the data with patients, so patients stay informed and are able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment

Our office is pleased to offer cone beam 3D imaging for patients receiving dental treatment. Come and see for yourself what it’s like to receive a more advanced, patient-friendly dental experience.
