At Los Angeles Center for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we use the most advanced and reliable tools available to plan and execute your treatment plan. With advanced 3D scanning technology, our oral surgeons can get high-quality 3D images of your entire mouth and jaw. If additional imaging is needed to supplement the scans taken by your dentist or doctor, we can perform 3D imaging in just a few minutes during your initial consultation appointment.
These images allow your oral surgeon to understand your condition fully before proceeding with surgery. Your surgeon will be able to locate important nerves, bones, and other structures before your procedure begins. The images are so accurate that we can use them to create custom surgical guides, eliminating the need for you to be present during the bulk of the treatment planning process.
Benefits of 3D Scanning
Our 3D CT scanner offers a variety of benefits over traditional X-rays, including the following:
- More detailed images
- Substantially less radiation exposure for patients
- Fewer surprises or complications during surgery
- More accurate treatment planning for jaw surgeries, dental implants, etc.
