3D Digital CT Scan San Diego

Dental x-rays can now be taken using sensors to transmit the image directly into computer. Digital x-rays are faster, have less radiation and are environmentally friendly since no chemicals are used for developing the images.

A 3D Digital CT Scan gives us an in-depth, comprehensive view of your mouth, including your teeth, jawbone, jaw joint and the sinuses. It gives us valuable information about a variety of oral conditions, including:

  • Position of wisdom teeth      Sirona_Galileos
  • Jaw-joint problems
  • Sinus problems
  • Receding bone levels resulting from periodontal disease
  • Abscesses
  • Dental implant planning, and positioning to avoid vital structures
  • Possible Cysts / Tumors of the jaws

Advantages over 2D Imaging (Panoramic):

  • More information – in 3D – showing the exact position of nerves, sinuses and other vital structures
  • Better planning – quality and quantity of bone can be assessed
  • Improved detail
  • More conservative treatment
