The Benefits of 3D Imaging Technology

3D dental imaging (also known as Cone Beam Computed Tomography, or CBCT) allows your dentist 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 image quality and a lower dose of radiation. With an

enhanced visualization of your teeth, bones, and surrounding hard and soft tissue, your doctor will

understand more about your diagnosis and treatment plan.

Your dentist 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 your dental professional 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

Your dentist will thoroughly analyze the images. SIDEXIS 4 Software allows your dental professional to compare historical images from your record side-by side with your new 3D scans, providing you with a “before and after” view of your procedure, so you can visualize the results. 3D technology is yet another way Lake Nona Dental Group is doing everything possible to offer the best possible care for our patients.
