3D scanning is a new type of digital imaging done with cone-beam computer tomography, or CBCT for short. This device uses a light shaped like a cone to take thousands of images of a section of the mouth. Each image serves as a layer which the computer uses to build upon and create a detailed profile with more fidelity than traditional imagine options. As a result, this type of scan enhances treatment capabilities and outcomes for patients.
3D scanning technology has a wide range of applications in both treatment and diagnosis. For example, scans can be used to determine the cause of a dental issue and decide whether extraction is necessary. This technology has also been beneficial in creating prosthetic restorations like dentures, dental crowns, implants, and veneers.
