A 3D CT scan is an innovative digital imaging method that provides a quick and painless examination of your teeth, jaws, and face. Unlike the more conventional radiographic techniques, the 3D CT offers the creation of extremely accurate, detailed images that are three-dimensional. These images allow us to visualize critical anatomical structures and to better understand your condition. This helps us to make the most accurate diagnosis and treatment recommendations. 3D CT scanning may be necessary to determine a variety of oral conditions, like the location and position of impacted teeth, locate important nerves in the jaw, evaluate cases of facial trauma, or identify and characterize several different types of tumors.
Patient comfort and safety are our top priority. Through the use of the most advanced 3D CT scanning, the team at Pikes Peak Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center is able to obtain important information for treatment while reducing radiation exposure to our patients. 3D CT scanning allows us to make the most accurate diagnosis possible in order to eliminate potential surprises during your treatment, prevent any unnecessary procedures, and better prepare our staff for the upcoming treatment. As a result, this tool generally provides patients with a shorter operating time and fewer post-surgical complications.
At Pikes Peak Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we work hard to provide our patients with the highest level of quality and technology possible to ensure optimal clinical results and recovery after the procedure.
