3D CT Scan For Dental Care - Panneton Dental Group
3D CT Scan
The PreXion 3D Cone Beam CT Scanner is a revolutionary dental imaging system that provides three dimensional, high-resolution dental images. The PreXion CT Scanner provides detailed images with significant and precise information compared to a traditional x-ray film. PreXion 3D is an open-environment scan taken in a seated position, with scanning time less than 40 seconds, and significantly lower radiation compared to traditional CT Scans (up to 95% less radiation).
This computerized technology produces clear and extremely detailed 3-dimensional pictures of the jaws, illustrating the actual makeup of the teeth and jawbone. What's more, we have a CT scanner at both our Southlake and Arlington dental offices, making advanced care more convenient for our patients.
What are the benefits of having a digital 3D CT Scan?
The CT Scan has numerous benefits, primarily when planning for dental implants. The 3-dimensional scan aids in evaluating the facial bone to assess the feasibility of placing dental implants. Also, the images produced help assess the location of the nerves, sinuses, and nose to prevent involvement when placing the dental implants. This 3-dimensional diagnostic tool helps evaluate any abnormalities or pathology that may be present in the bone. Once this three-dimensional scan has been taken, it is used to construct a biomodel of the teeth and jaws. With PreXion's clear and 1:1 scale images, accurate measurements assure that the optimum implant is placed. Our patient treatment is enhanced with this powerfully computed tomography technology and its precise measurement tools.
