At Henderson Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we want to give our patients the best possible care. To do so, our office in Henderson, NV, is fitted with the most advanced and reliable diagnostic tools available. Our 3D imaging services create high-quality, three-dimensional images that give your surgeon far more detailed information about your condition than conventional X-rays.
3D scanning can help your treatment team create incredibly detailed images with substantially less radiation exposure than conventional X-rays. These images can be used to form the most accurate treatment plan possible for your procedure. If you are receiving dental implants, your scans may also be used to create custom surgical guides for your procedure. These surgical guides drastically reduce the chances of complications or improper implant placement during your procedure.
Benefits of 3D CT Imaging
3D imaging can make your entire treatment process go more smoothly by providing the most accurate possible images of your mouth. These images provide a lot of benefits for your surgeon and you as a patient. A few of these advantages include
- Improving the visibility of important structures and nerves before your procedure begins, drastically reducing the chances of damaging these structures during surgery
- Creating images that allow for virtual 3D modeling so that your surgeon can plan your procedure and create surgical guides weeks ahead of time
- Reducing patient exposure to radiation from multiple X-rays
