3D Oral Imaging in Houston, TX

While digital oral x-rays can collect two-dimensional pictures of your teeth, 3D oral imaging provides a full 360-degree view. 3D imaging allows Dr. Palmer to identify and evaluate potential oral health issues or damage to your jaw, skull, teeth, and mouth. 3D digital imaging provides the team at Palmer Dental Group of Houston with a blueprint of each patient's complete dental health. In addition to identifying possible dental concerns, it can also help evaluate and explain recommended treatments. The 3D images obtained could also be used to create custom dental crowns, onlays, inlays, and implants. 3D oral imaging enables our Houston, TX patients to make informed decisions pertaining to their dental health.

3D imaging is often performed as part of your routine dental examination. The process is very similar to having x-rays taken, but with 3D imaging, the imaging system will rotate 360 degrees around your head. 3D imaging takes about 20 – 40 seconds to capture a comprehensive view of your mouth. The images are then uploaded for Dr. Palmer to examine and determine if you have any dental conditions requiring treatment. Because the imaging process can expose patients to radiation, women who are nursing or pregnant should let the Palmer Dental Group of Houston team know beforehand. Also, kids should minimize their exposure to radiation and only receive 3D imaging if needed and recommended by a specialist.

3D oral imaging offers many benefits for patients in Houston, TX. Modern technology has now made it possible to take comprehensive dental x-rays in less than a minute. Other advantages of 3D digital imaging include:

What truly stood out to me was their attention to detail and their genuine care for their patients' well-being.
