Dentsply Sirona 3D imaging provides a traditional 3D digital tomographic view of the patient’s area of interest. While traditional x-rays are only two-dimensional, 3D imaging allows our team to visualize a full 360-degree view of the tooth and surrounding areas.
3D imaging scans can also be an essential component of dental implant treatment planning. Using a 3D reconstruction of your jaws, our doctor can virtually place your dental implant on the screen to determine the best positioning, angulation, and need for bone grafting before surgery. This virtual planning considers multiple aspects of implant placement when planning your treatment, resulting in optimal aesthetics, function, and longevity for your final restoration. Seeing a 3D model on the screen allows patients to understand their procedures better and visualize the end result.
