Your oral surgeon may recommend pictures to be taken of your teeth and jaws to provide the best treatment plan possible. These high-quality images are obtained through three-dimensional scanning, also known as 3D scanning. 3D scanning provides your oral surgeon with the most comprehensive information about your condition because your anatomy is viewed from every angle. This way, any issues that may come up ahead of your procedure can be anticipated, reducing the chance of complications or unforeseen circumstances. 3D scanning is a simple process that is often performed at your consultation appointment.
3D Scanning Benefits
Your oral surgeon uses the benefits of 3D scanning technology to view your facial anatomy from several angles. This helps to outline the ideal treatment plan and determine the best path for oral surgery procedures such as dental implant placement, orthognathic surgery, facial trauma treatment, and more.
3D scanning is one of the most beneficial technologies to help you achieve the best possible outcome. Other benefits of 3D scanning include
- Reduced risk of surprises or complications during the procedure
- Comprehensive look at facial structure and condition
- Less radiation exposure compared to a traditional X-ray
- 3D scans are easy to share with your dentist
