At Southern Oral & Facial Surgery, we offer all of our patients the most accurate diagnosis of your oral and maxillofacial issues through utilizing the very best tools available to us. We use 3D imaging through cone beam 3D CT scan technology to ensure that all patients receive the most sophisticated diagnostic imaging. Our entire team strives to deliver the most accurate diagnosis of your oral and maxillofacial issue, and the 3D CT scan is a tool that helps us accomplish this goal.
The 3D CT, also known as CBCT, works by combining a series of several X-rays to form a cone and provide a high-quality image. 3D CT images are very important in allowing us to offer patients appropriate treatment. Our oral surgeons also use the 3D CT scans to plan and perform procedures properly, such as wisdom teeth removals and dental implant placements.
The 3D CT provides additional information that cannot be obtained through conventional methods, such as X-rays. The 3D CT can offer better visuals to eliminate surprises during treatment, prevent unnecessary procedures, and better prepare us for your upcoming surgery. All of these benefits result in shorter operating time and fewer complications for the patient. The cone beam 3D CT scan helps Dr. Clark and Dr. Young make an accurate diagnosis. They will plan the treatment for your condition based on the 3D CT results, identify the best surgical procedure, and ensure optimal results.
At Southern Oral & Facial Surgery, we utilize the 3D CT scan to offer every patient the best possible treatment and recovery. If you have not already had a 3D CT scan, you may receive one during your initial consultation with either Dr. Clark, Dr. Young,or Dr. Lewallen. We are always striving to offer every patient the most effective treatment for their condition that delivers the most comfortable experience possible. If you have any questions about the 3D CT (CBCT) scan, please feel free to ask our staff at both our Franklin, TN, and Thompson’s Station, TN, offices. We would be happy to answer your questions before treatment so you can rest assured knowing that the 3D cone beam scan is safe and effective when you move forward with your specific treatment plan.
