3D Imaging: The Standard in Endodontic Care
The future of dental imaging has arrived, right here in our Pasadena office!
3D imaging is increasingly becoming the standard in endodontic care. In fact, from the endodontist’s office to the general practitioner’s, 3D imaging is rapidly changing the way that dentistry is performed.
3D Pictures for 3D Structures
The structures of the mouth and teeth, including the root systems, are three dimensional, yet traditionally they have been photographed in a two-dimensional manner. With the invention and increasing availability of 3D radiographs, we are now able to take dental patient care to the next level at our Pasadena Endodontix practice by providing better outcomes than ever before!
Similar to medical CAT Scans, CBCT, also known as Cone Beam Computed Tomography, and 3D dental imaging devices work by rotating around the patient while taking hundreds of pictures per second from different angles. A computer then takes those images and combines them to create a three-dimensional model in the form of a digital picture.
Complex Canals: A Better View
Not surprisingly, 3D imaging gives us a much better view of what is going on inside of your teeth. For example, we are able to see complex canals in much better clarity and with more contrast than ever before. The images also provide a better view of periapical lesions and additional anatomical structures in the axial, coronal, and sagittal sections.
Here are some of the benefits of CBCT 3D Machines:
- Less Radiation than with CAT Scans
- Compact Machines
- Allow for Better View of Root Canals
- Precise Diagnoses
- More Predictable Treatment Plans and Prognoses
We are proud to provide the newest in technology for our patients to ensure the best care possible!
