It is crucial for our team to have the most detailed information available about your oral health to develop and carry out your treatment plan for the very best long-term results. To this end, Abbotsford Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Centre is outfitted with state-of-the-art diagnostic tools such as cone beam CT technology for highly accurate three-dimensional images. When detailed 3D diagnostic images are employed in surgeries, patients not only experience a more precise result, they often have a faster recovery because their procedure was less invasive. Taking the guesswork out of the surgery allows your oral surgeon to provide you with the best experience possible.
3D imaging is used to diagnose and develop treatment plans for a wide variety of procedures, from assessing the exact position of impacted teeth in wisdom teeth extractions to placing dental implants. If you haven’t received recent 3D imaging before your initial consultation, you may receive it in our practice. Our imaging is digital; therefore, the amount of radiation exposure you will receive is just a fraction of what is received from conventional X-rays. Digital imagery is also helpful for quick sharing with your referring doctor, allowing your medical team to collaborate easily on your care.

Benefits of 3D scanning include the following:
- Reduced radiation exposure (in comparison to traditional X-rays).
- Detailed images of your anatomy and condition.
- Multi-angled viewing of your anatomy.
- Improved diagnostic capability and treatment plans.
- Lower risk of surprises during the procedure and no guesswork.
- Instant results! 3D images are immediately available for your oral surgeon to view and share with other members of your care team.
3D scanning provides high-quality, three-dimensional images of your anatomy for the most detailed information available about your condition.
