Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery uses state-of-the-art 3D dental imaging to aid their surgical procedures. Learn about the benefits of 3D imaging for the patient as well as the surgeon.
Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery uses state-of-the-art dental technology to offer 3D dental imaging. 3D imaging allows oral surgeons to view a patient’s mouth in a way that an X-Ray or CT scan cannot, and with the 3D imaging capabilities oral surgeons can more accurately diagnose their patients. Ultimately, the surgeon is able to provide a more effective treatment plan and conduct an easier procedure which leads to faster recovery times for the patient.
Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery has locations throughout the Lowcountry with offices in Charleston, North Charleston, Summerville, Mt. Pleasant and Bluffton, SC. Their first office opened in 2005 and they have continued to grow since. With four oral surgeons, one aesthetician and a team of the most qualified medical practitioners, Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery takes great pride in their practice.
3D imaging is one of the latest dental technologies, and it has proven to greatly improve the process for oral surgeries. It uses a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) machine which can take a high-quality 3D image of the patient’s mouth. This allows the dental surgeon to clearly see the patient’s entire mouth and skull in greater detail than ever before.
3D imaging has tremendous benefits for the patient as well, and Charleston Oral and Facial Surgery has recently released a blog post discussing this. These benefits include:
· Less exposure to radiation
· Ensured accuracy of the image
· Ensured accuracy of the diagnosis
· Safer surgery procedures
· Shorter scan times
· An improved ability to assess bone quality
· State-of-the-art surgical guides
