What Are The Advantages of 3-D Computer Imaging in Orthodontics?

Ever since the development of x-rays and CT scans, 3-D computer imaging has become essential for viewing and analyzing the oral cavity. The technology behind 3-D computer imaging is highly advanced and is revolutionizing orthodontic care.

In this blog article, we are discussing a couple of advantages orthodontists receive from the use of 3-D computer imaging.

Clearer Diagnosis and Improved Patient Care

3-D Computer imaging provides invaluable information when searching for transposed teeth, facial clefts, or other jaw ailments. With 3-D computer imaging, orthodontists have a much clearer idea of the patient’s anatomy and what treatment will work best for them.

This information is advantageous for patient treatment because it gives the doctor pictures of the patient’s mouth before treatment. 3-D computer imaging allows doctors to keep a clinic patient file containing their 3-D cat scan, x-ray, and other details.

Not only does 3-D imaging provide information about patients, but it also provides doctors with reference points so they can review the effectiveness of treatment plans.

Do All Orthodontists Use 3-D Computer Imaging?

Not all orthodontists have access to 3-D computer imaging technology. 3-D x-rays and Digital Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) equipment is very expensive and therefore hard to come by.
