Drs. Morgan and Morio use the latest diagnostic technology available for unmatched visualization of anatomical detail to form your unique surgical treatment plan. The state-of-the-art 3D technology we use gives our oral and maxillofacial practice the ability to diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, our 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. This innovative technology enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits and allows us to share 3D images with your referring doctor quickly and easily — allowing your medical team to collaborate on your care and improve your oral surgery experience.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
Every treatment plan is designed to suit a patient’s particular condition and anatomy. To aid with this, we use 3D scanning, which offers comprehensive digital information about our patient’s condition with far more detail than traditional X-rays can provide. This cutting-edge technology is beneficial to many oral surgery procedures including dental implant placement.
Benefits of 3D scanning include
- Reduced radiation exposure over traditional X-rays.
- Incredibly detailed images of your anatomy and condition.
- Condition can be viewed from all angles, including all surrounding areas.
- Improved diagnostic capability and treatment plans.
- Lower risk of surprises during the procedure.
- Digital X-rays are instant — images are immediately available for your oral surgeon to view and to share with other members of your medical team.
3D scanning is a very valuable tool that allows for the most efficient treatment possible by providing high-quality, three-dimensional images of your anatomy for extremely detailed information about your condition.
