3D X-Rays are far superior to standard 2D X-Ray imaging. As we mentioned above, the Sirona 3D X-Ray imaging can be used in the planning and implementation process of dental implants. The technology allows the doctor to virtually plan out the implant process in 3 dimensions on the computer, before ever performing the procedure in the patients mouth! This reduces the number of surprises that could be encountered during the surgical process.
3D X-Rays may not be necessary for all implants and other dental procedures and each patient will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
