Dr. Elham Amini is now utilizing 3D imaging techniques, Orthophos S to provide her valued patients with a detailed view of the mouth and skull. The advantage that 3D imaging holds over regular dental x-rays is that bone structure, bone density, tissues, and nerves can be viewed clearly.
Lower radiation exposure and excellent images are associated with more efficient data management. When working digitally, Dr. Amini has the ability to discuss your diagnoses, treatment methods, and provide a better safer and faster dental solution.
Orthophos S imaging can be completed in less than half a minute. The main purpose for Orthophos S imaging is to accurately plan dental implant treatment and other oral surgery.
Dental implants are the most sophisticated replacement for missing teeth, but have historically proven to be time-consuming to place. Orthophos S imaging vastly reduce the time it takes to place implants. It is thought that in the near future implants will be placed in a single visit because of this unique type of imaging.
How is the Orthophos S 3D imaging used?
Orthophos S imaging are advantageous because it will allow Dr. Amini to magnify specific areas of the face. In addition, Dr. Amini can easily view cross-sectional “slices” of the jaw, which makes planning treatment easier and faster.
Here are some of the main ways in which Orthophos S 3D imaging are used in dentistry:
- Assess the quality of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
- Determine where nerves are located.
- Diagnose tumors and disease in the early stages.
- Measure the density of the jawbone where the implant will be placed.
- Pinpoint the most effective placement for implants, including the angle of best fit.
- Plan the complete surgical procedure in advance, from start to finish.
- Precisely decide on the appropriate size and type of implants.
- View exact orientation and position of each tooth.
- View impacted teeth.
How are Orthophos S 3D imaging performed?
Orthophos S imaging are quick and simple to perform. A Cone Beam Imaging System is at the heart of the Orthophos S. The cone beams are used to take literally hundreds of pictures of the face. These pictures are used to compile an exact 3D image of the inner mechanisms of the face and jaw. Dr. Amini is able to zoom in on specific areas and view them from alternate angles.
Previous patients report the Orthophos S is comfortable because they have an option of a sitting or standing position at all times. Additionally, the scanner provides an open environment, meaning that claustrophobic feelings are eliminated. The Orthophos S is an incredible tool that is minimizing the cost of dental treatment, reducing treatment time and enhancing the end results of dental surgery.
