What Is Oral Imaging?
Two-dimensional dental x-rays can be very useful in giving our dentists an idea of your bone and jaw health, but there are times when a more advanced examination is needed. At Say Cheeze Dental, our dentists can use 3D oral imaging to get a 360-degree view of your teeth and jawbone, allowing for a more in-depth assessment of any oral health conditions you may have. Not only can 3D oral imaging help us to assess any potential dental problems, but it also helps evaluate and explain what changes could be made. This state-of-the-art technology allows for a speedier diagnosis and more precise treatment options. The 3D images collected can even be used to make more specific dental onlays, inlays, implants, etc. This imaging technique allows us to help our Apex, NC patients make informed choices pertaining to their dental treatments.
What Can I Expect During My Visit?
Just like with standard 2D imaging, 3D dental imaging will usually be performed as a part of your yearly dental exams at our Apex, NC office. The whole process takes approximately 30 seconds for a complete mouth view. The pictures are then uploaded for your dentist to review and see whether you are experiencing any dental problems that may necessitate therapy. Because the imaging procedure can expose individuals to radiation, women that are nursing or pregnant should inform our team beforehand. Additionally, children should reduce radiation exposure and only receive 3D imaging if needed and approved by a professional.
