3D Imaging

3D imaging dental technology at Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery and Dental Implant CenterBeing able to see exactly what is going on in your mouth and how all the intricacies of your teeth, bone, and soft tissue structures come together is of the utmost importance when formulating treatment plans. At Reno-Tahoe Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we don't leave anything to chance, and that is why we use 3D imaging in every treatment process. By using the latest advances in cutting-edge dental imagining technology, we can see exactly what the issues are and make precise plans on how to fix them.

What Is 3D imaging?

There are many different types of 3D imaging technologies that are available for a huge variety of different uses. When we refer to 3D imaging technology, we are referring specifically to our GENDEX CB500 cone beam system. This system is essentially a very specialized digital x-ray machine. You are probably used to dental x-ray machines, as most dentists take a series of x-rays of your mouth at least once a year. The GENDEX CB500 is probably similar to the x-ray machine that you are familiar with at your dentist's office.

The difference between the x-ray machines you are used to and the CB500 is the GENDEX CB500 allows patients to stand and takes less time to do its business. There is a positioning lever that (when bitten) allows patients to stand in the correct spot. Once the patient is positioned correctly, we can initiate the scan. The most interesting part of the CB500 (and most cone beam scanners) is the way it takes a 3D image. It will swivel around your head in a steady line, taking a full, 360-degree orbit of your mouth, or whatever it is positioned to scan.

By taking a long, panoramic, 3D image, it gives us a very in-depth view of every crevice of your mouth and the tissues therein. Using this image, we can pull up both 2D and 3D images of any angle of the mouth. We can look at the images as one might the progressive pages in a book, and include things like nerves, bone, and soft tissues.

The best part is this functions using digital x-ray technology which exposes patients to a very small fraction of the radiation that normal x-ray technology does. Because the image is taken digitally, we can view it immediately on a computer monitor and share our finding with you in a similar fashion. All this in stunning high-definition, allowing us to view any part of the image in close-up detail.
