Three-dimensional (3D) CT scanning technology with Planmeca is a digital imaging method that provides a rapid and painless examination of your face, jaws, and teeth. Unlike conventional radiographic techniques, the 3D Imaging CT allows for the creation of images that are three-dimensional, high definition, and extremely accurate. These images allow us to visualize critical anatomical structures and to better understand your condition. This helps tremendously when making treatment recommendations. Three-dimensional CT scanning may be necessary to determine the location and position of impacted teeth, characterize several different types of tumors, locate important nerves in the jaw, or evaluate cases of facial trauma. Unlike other doctors, we never place any dental implants without this kind of imaging.
Patient safety is our top priority at Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center. Utilizing 3D CT scanning allows our surgical team to obtain important information for treatment without exposing our patients to the higher levels of radiation provided by conventional medical CT scanning technology. This expert imaging allows us to make the most highly accurate diagnosis possible to eliminate surprises during your treatment, prevent unnecessary procedures, and better prepare our staff for the upcoming surgery. As a result, this generally provides patients with a shorter operating time and fewer post-surgical complications.
At Indianapolis Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we work hard to ensure that we provide our patients with the highest level of quality and technology possible to ensure optimal clinical results and recovery after the procedure.
