Digital scanning allows you to visualize the oral cavity in detail. The device reads the reflection of light from objects and transmits the data to a computer, where a special program converts the information into a three-dimensional 3D image.
The result of intraoral scanning:
An accurate, multifunctional three-dimensional model of the dentition and soft tissues.
A digital image is more convenient to use than a plaster cast, because:
In-depth computer diagnostics (CBCT) using the Carestream 9600 dental CBCT scanner provides complete information about the state of health of bones and soft tissues in the jaws and nasopharynx.
The scanner for cone-beam computed tomography of teeth and jaw is located in a separate special office. It should be noted that it is namely CBCT that is used at Meerhof, since this type of X-ray scanning gives a lower radiation load than the classic multi-spiral CT (MSCT).
During the procedure, the assistant helps the patient to fix the head correctly in one position. The scanner spins around him at 360 degrees, collecting voluminous information transmitted to the computer.
The result of X-ray tomography:
The data allows the doctor to give you the correct diagnosis and choose the best tactics for treatment.
