Advantages of 3D Dental Imaging Vs. Traditional X-Rays
3D dental imaging (also known as Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT) allows Dr. Hosseini to see more anatomy, and with more clarity than traditional film-based dental x-rays. The focused x-ray beam reduces scatter radiation, resulting in better quality and a lower dose of radiation. With an enhanced visualization of your teeth, bones, and surrounding hard and soft tissue, Dr. Hosseini will understand more about your diagnosis and treatment plan.
Fast, Accurate Images with Enhanced Patient Comfort
Dr. Hosseini has invested in this technology to see more of your teeth and surrounding structure as it relates to your dental anatomy. Traditional dental x-rays are cumbersome and may cause a gagging reflex. 3D scans are much more comfortable, much less invasive, and provide a more relaxed and enjoyable treatment experience. The accuracy, precision, and clarity of images produced by 3D scans allow Dr. Hosseini to provide a better diagnosis and helps prepare for a wide range of dental procedures, such as:
- Accurate placement of dental implants
- Extraction planning for impacted teeth
- Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals, and nasal cavity
- Determining bone structure and tooth orientation
Ideal for Implants and Sleep Apnea Devices
3D scans produce precise, anatomically accurate images of both hard and soft tissues with exceptional detail and clarity. These images allow Dr. Hosseini to plan and place dental implants exactly at the right position with perfect alignment and height. 3D scans are equally useful in creating anatomically-precise oral devices that position the mouth in such a way to help prevent snoring.
