While a traditional 2D X-ray is great for finding dental problems before they’re visible to the naked eye, sometimes, Dr. Tindal needs more information about a patient’s dental anatomy. That’s when he likes to use our Planmeca Romexis CT scanner.
With it, he can create a fully 3D X-ray model of a patient’s teeth, jaw, and surrounding oral structures. This kind of image is not only very interesting to look at, but it also helps Dr. Tindal formulate precise treatment plans for more complicated procedures. For instance, he can use this kind of image to create a personalized surgical guide for dental implant placement that not only helps him find the perfect locations within the jaw to position a patient’s new teeth, but also perform the procedure while avoiding sensitive nerves to ensure a faster and more seamless recovery.
