3D SCANNING OF THE JAWS
Our high resolution 3D scanner is a new generation Cone Beam CT scanner, specifically intended for examination of the
jaws and skull. The scan time may be as little as 10 seconds, and the patient is examined in a seated position rather than
lying down, so patient comfort is much improved.
The scans set a new standard in planning for Dental Implant Surgery, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, ENT Surgery,
Endodontics, Periodontics and Orthodontics.
This data can also be processed by our sophisticated software to identify and select a particular anatomical region.
We can then view this as a high resolution 3D image.
2D PANORAMIC RADIOGRAPHY
This examination produces a 2D image of all your teeth and jaws (including buried teeth), and is useful for planning
Dental Treatment, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, or simple Dental Implant Surgery.
