Benefits of your dentist using advanced technology in our Brentwood office
Over the years, there have been a number of exciting advances made in the field of dentistry. One that we are particularly happy about is the development of 3D imaging, which benefits both dentist and patient immensely.
3D imaging is used today in a number of applications, ranging from cosmetic treatments to the design of a treatment plan for missing teeth, to a real-time guide in the dental implant procedure. Your dentist
likes this technology
in our Brentwood
office because it allows us to view everything that is happening in the mouth immediately, including the teeth, bones, and areas of soft tissue and the airway. You might like this technology because it is quick and painless.
We believe that our patients deserve the highest level of care, which is why we have added this diagnostic tool to our practice. Collecting images with 3D cone beam technology provides us with the most accurate information available, which better guides your dentist
in the development of a treatment plan. Using this and other technology
in our Brentwood
practice increases our efficiency and leads to optimal results of treatment.
3D imaging is similar to digital photography, using similar technology to record images. The benefit to this new and improved technique is that there is no need to bite down on dental film, a process that produces discomfort and takes several minutes to complete. When we snap digital x-rays, you simply sit comfortably while our scanner makes a circle around your head. Fast and comfortable, this innovative process is also safer, as there is less exposure to radiation than with traditional x-rays. Further benefit comes from the fact that all images are digital, which means they are stored electronically, and are immediately accessible at all dental appointments.
3D imaging in dentistry is ideal, for this process requires no advanced preparation and no discomfort to the patient. Quick, simple, and painless, allows your dentist a panoramic view of all the areas of the mouth and jaw, which facilitates planning and leads to the best possible care. When you understand that we have every detail of information needed to know your facial structure and oral details precisely, you can feel more confident in the care you receive.
