Planning to get a dental implant? To increase the comfort level for the procedures you get in our practice, we at Montpelier Family Dentistry use a 3D CT scan. They are a good alternative to x-ray counterparts and also comfortable as well as safe.
When is the purpose of using a 3D CT Scan?
We utilize 3D dental imaging for certain reasons like to determine root canal issues, dental cavities, and, very importantly, dental implant surgery.
Through these images, the dentist can get a better view of the anatomical structure of patients and determine treatments accordingly.
In the dental field, these scans are also used for the following purposes:
- Find the location of nerves
- Locate exact position to place implants
- Check the situation of impacted teeth
- Create an entire surgical treatment plan
- Measure the jawbone density
- Diagnose and check tumors
