Who Is a Candidate for 3D Oral Scans?
3D oral scans at Made Ya Smile are safe for patients of all ages, and the high-quality images that are created are an important part of diagnosis and treatment planning at our practice. Our advanced scanning tools emit very low levels of radiation and can capture a detailed 360-degree image of your oral cavity. This information can be especially helpful when providing treatment for children and adolescents because it can help our team accurately monitor jaw development while planning the best timing of certain treatments such as orthodontics or tooth extractions. There are also several benefits for our adult patients if they need fillings, crowns, root canal therapy, and other potential treatment needs. Individuals who have suffered facial or oral trauma can also benefit greatly from this technology.
How Does 3D Oral Imaging Work?
Our patients have regularly commented that the advanced oral scanning process used to create their 3D oral scans is fast, comfortable, and surprisingly efficient. To create your scans, our team will ask you to sit precisely in front of our advanced system as it rotates around your head while taking a series of images. This process usually only takes about 40 seconds or less. The collected images are instantly transferred to our computer system and stored on in your medical file. Once our team can review your scans and analyze them, we will present our findings and point out any potential sources of interest or concern. A very small amount of radiation is emitted by our device, so we do ask that you keep our staff informed if you happen to be pregnant or suspect you could so that we can take the right precautions.
What Happens After the 3D Imaging Process?
Our experienced team is proud to offer our patients from the Rosenberg, TX area the ability to treat their dental needs and concerns using comprehensive high-quality scans. The 3D imaging technology we use in our office allows our team to have an enhanced view of your mouth and helps us to see all of the important details that would be impossible to visualize using only our eyes. This innovative approach also enables the ability to determine your dental needs from a comprehensive perspective that was not as easily approached using traditional x-rays. Your specific dental needs and treatment plan will play a role in deciding how often 3D oral scans need to be taken, and we will be sure to have a conversation about this as a part of developing your customized treatment plan.
