Dental 3D Imaging Q & A

What is dental 3D imaging?

Dental 3D imaging offers a quick and comfortable way for Dr. Kaplan to get a comprehensive picture of your oral anatomy and structures.

An X-ray arm rotates around your head, capturing multiple images that are sent to a computer. The images are incredibly clear and concise, leading to more accurate and customized treatment.

Why would I need dental 3D imaging?

Dr. Kaplan may order dental 3D imaging to:

  • Assess the quality of your jawbone where an implant will be placed
  • Measure the density of your jawbone where an implant will be placed
  • Determine the most effective placement for an implant
  • Decide on the size and type of implant
  • Diagnose tumors and diseases in the early stages
  • Determine where nerves are located
  • View the exact orientation and position of each tooth
  • Detect and view impacted teeth

Dr. Kaplan uses dental 3D imaging when he feels it will enhance your diagnosis and treatment.

What are the benefits of dental 3D imaging?

Dental 3D imaging revolutionizes diagnosis and treatment for both the provider and the patient.

Dr. Kaplan can zoom in, rotate, and view your 3D images from just about every angle. He can evaluate your oral health and tooth structure from different depths. Dental 3D imaging shows both hard and soft dental structures, giving your doctor a full picture of your oral health.

The 3D scans are easier for you to tolerate; there’s no need to bite down on a film while the image is taken. The procedure is short and effective.

The 3D imaging allows Dr. Kaplan to visualize your teeth, roots, gums, nerves, bones, and airways. He can see how these structures relate to each other. 

Dental 3D imaging requires less radiation than traditional X-rays. It takes just about 10 seconds to get a complete scan. You do need to hold still as the scan takes place.

As a result of dental 3D imaging, you get a precise diagnosis and highly customized treatment plans to keep your teeth healthy.
