3D X-Ray Imaging

We offer the most leading-edge technology when it comes to your orthodontic treatment.  Officially known as Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) our office can generate a full 3D radiograph image of the face and jaws.

The magic of CBCT technology is actually in the computer software. Nothing has changed with the actual x-rays used. As the x-rays pass through the patient and reach the sensor, the computer software assembles all the information into one three-dimensional model. The image is then manipulated to look at areas of interest from any vantage point and offer a more personalized and precise treatment regime.  Not only do 3D x-rays take less time and use less radiation, they also acquire enough data in one single scan to create many different images. 

 

Our 3D x-ray is similar to a medical CT scan, however, it is faster and requires much less radiation.  Medical CT scans of the head take between 3 and 5 minutes while our machine scans in less than 10 seconds and uses up to 100 times less radiation! Learn More!

You Bet!  We will NOT miss a thing when it comes to diagnosing and treatment planning.  3D imaging is critical in understanding tooth positions and allows us to communicate effectively where surgery may be required.  We can gain the information needed to treat the most complex cases!

Dr. Olson can generate a 3D model of the teeth, a panoramic image, cephalometric images, a TMJ series and an airway analysis to name a few… all without re-exposing the patient to more radiation.   We are excited to have this new, and superior addition to the Olson Orthodontics office!
