Chances are you’ve had regular two-dimensional X-rays at the dentist, which are useful for spotting problems such as cavities or infections. But for some dental procedures such as orthodontics and implants, we need more information to give you an accurate diagnosis and plan your treatment. We’ll let you know if we need three-dimensional images of your teeth.
3D X-rays give a much more complete picture of your teeth, bones, nerve pathways and soft tissue. All you need to do is sit in a chair, and the machine will do the work. In a single scan, our 3D X-ray machine will rotate around your head and take a series of 2D images that are then combined to create a 3D image where we can view your dental anatomy from a variety of angles. It’s quick and accurate, and you won’t feel a thing.
