3D Imaging Scans
The days of uncomfortable and hard-to-see black and white X-rays are thankfully long gone. And while impressions still have a place in orthodontic treatment, Advanced Orthodontics primarily utilizes state-of-the-art 3D Imaging Scans for a more accurate picture of your dental framework. Take it from Dr. Larrabee:
“These 3D scans allow me to provide my patients with the most accurate diagnosis and ideal treatment possible. This increase in accuracy allows me to provide stunning results for my patients, no matter their age.”
If you’ve ever had black & white X-rays done before, you probably remember how long it took and how uncomfortable the bitewings were – not a pleasant experience at all! Patients who use 3D Imaging Scans are exposed to less radiation and a much faster experience overall.
In the days of traditional X-rays, Orthodontists would have to take multiple x-rays of various angles of your face and jaw to ensure they got as many perspectives as possible. Unfortunately, this was not always accurate, and there was a lot of room for error. With 3D Imaging Scans, all you need is one scan, and the orthodontist can access all angles to diagnose hard-to-find impacted teeth, wisdom teeth, as well as root angles – potentially saving you money down the road!
Advanced Orthodontics is committed to utilizing the most up-to-date technology available in the orthodontic industry for the betterment and comfort of our patients. If you have any questions or concerns about 3D Imaging Scans, feel free to contact us.
