To get the most accurate depiction of your teeth, jaw, and overall oral condition, the dentists at Midlothian Dental Arts will use CT scans and 3D imaging technology. These innovative systems allow us to get the most advanced view of your dental health.
We utilize cone beam 3D imaging technology to create a three-dimensional image of the entire mouth and jaw area. This information helps us to better evaluate bone density, volume, and health. It is particularly helpful for dental implant placements since we can get an accurate view to determine the exact placement of the implants.
Other areas in which 3D imaging is used include:
- Checking on abnormal teeth
- Evaluating teeth alignment
- Analyzing dental and facial trauma
- Detecting endodontic problems
- Diagnosing tooth decay
- Viewing the head and neck as a comprehensive whole
- Assessing a TMJ disorder
- Evaluating the jaws and face
Cone beam 3D imaging is a state-of-the-art unit that minimizes radiation exposure without compromising quality. From these images, Dr. Abbott is able to evaluate and diagnose any issues, as well as plan the most effective treatment.
