3D Imaging

CBCT machine in dental exam room at Boise Endodontics in Boise, IDDental 3D imaging, also known as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), is a cutting-edge technology that has revolutionized the field of dentistry. Unlike traditional dental X-rays, which produce two-dimensional images, 3D imaging provides detailed three-dimensional views of the teeth, jawbone, and surrounding structures. This advancement allows dental professionals to gain a comprehensive understanding of a patient's oral anatomy, facilitating accurate diagnoses and treatment planning.

The process of dental 3D imaging involves a specialized CBCT scanner, which emits a cone-shaped beam of X-rays around the patient's head. The scanner rotates 360 degrees, capturing a series of images that are then digitally reconstructed into a precise 3D model. This technology offers a more comprehensive view than standard X-rays, making it especially valuable for complex dental procedures such as dental implant placement, orthodontic assessments, and endodontic evaluations.

The benefits of dental 3D imaging are numerous. Its high level of accuracy and detailed visualization enable dentists to identify hidden dental issues, such as impacted teeth or root fractures, that might be undetectable with traditional X-rays. Additionally, the ability to assess bone density and quality aids in determining the suitability of a patient for dental implants. By improving diagnostic accuracy and treatment planning, 3D imaging contributes to more successful outcomes and reduced risk of complications during dental procedures.
