3-D CT scanning technology is a digital imaging method that provides a rapid and painless examination of your face, jaws, and teeth. Unlike conventional radiographic techniques, the 3-D CT allows for the creation of images that are 3-dimensional, high definition, and extremely accurate. These images allow us to visualize critical anatomical structures and to better understand your condition. This helps tremendously when making treatment recommendations. 3-D CT scanning may be necessary to determine the location and position of impacted teeth, characterize several different types of tumors, locate important nerves in the jaw or evaluate cases of facial trauma. Unlike other doctors, we never place any dental implants without this kind of imaging.
Patient safety is our top priority at Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City. Utilizing 3-D CT scanning allows our surgical team to obtain important information for treatment without exposing our patients to the higher levels of radiation provided by conventional medical CT scanning technology. This expert imaging allows us to make the most highly accurate diagnosis possible in order to eliminate surprises during your treatment, prevent unnecessary procedures, and better prepare our staff for the upcoming surgery. As a result, this generally provides patients with a shorter operating time and fewer post-surgical complications.
At Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center of Panama City, we work hard to ensure that we provide our patients with the highest level of quality and technology possible to ensure optimal clinical results and recovery after the procedure.
