Patient safety is our top priority at Boise Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center. 3D CT scanning technology is a digital imaging technique that provides a quick and painless visual examination of your teeth, jaws, and facial structure. Unlike conventional X-ray/radiographic methods, the 3D CT allows for the creation of images that are high definition, three-dimensional, and extremely accurate. 3D CT images allow us to visualize critical anatomical structures and to understand your condition better. This type of visualization helps tremendously when making recommendations for treatment.
3D 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.
Utilizing 3D cone beam CT scanning allows our surgical team to obtain important information for treatment without exposing our patients to the higher levels of radiation that come with conventional medical CT scanning technology. This expert imaging allows us to make the most accurate diagnosis possible to prevent unnecessary procedures, eliminate any unexpected surprises and better prepare our staff for the upcoming surgery. As a result, this provides patients with a shorter operating time and fewer complications.
At Boise Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Center, we work hard to ensure that patients receive the highest level of quality and technology possible to ensure optimal clinical results and recovery after the procedure.
