3D Orthodontics is not science fiction!
The i-CAT FLX Cone Beam 3D Imaging System certainly feels like the future! Dr. Greg Greenberg at RxSmile Frisco Orthodontics is continuing his trend of staying on the leading edge of orthodontics by yet again, investing in technology that puts him ahead in his field and gives his patients the best possible care. This award-winning technology uses a cone-shaped beam to scan and capture a high-definition 3D full model of your mouth, rather than a series of flat images normally used by an orthodontist.
3D Orthodontics imaging gives a safer diagnosis, with less radiation than standard digital x-rays, adds increased comfort for patients who are seated in an open environment with plenty of space, and allows views of all anatomies such as bone, teeth, tooth orientation, tooth and nerve relation, airways and sinuses. This increased visualization is extremely important, not just for dental or orthodontic needs, but also for TMJ and airway analysis, orthodontic and oral surgery planning. In a few seconds, one scan provides Dr. Greenberg with enough data to diagnose and develop a treatment plan for your beautiful smile!
Getting the full 3D picture
Not all orthodontists are created equal. Dr. Greenberg uses 3D orthodontics imaging because it’s far superior to traditional digital 2D x-ray for evaluating the full facial and dentition in exacting detail in order to give a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for orthodontic issues. Not only that, but having the higher level of detail allows measurement of sinus and airway passages in order to automatically compute the total airway volume, and view segmented areas of constriction to aid in the treatment planning of obstructive sleep apnea and other airway disorders. With our 3D orthodontics imaging system, you’ll be able to visualize everything needed to move your teeth before you start orthodontic treatment.
The bottom line is that the more anatomical information available, the better Dr. Greenberg can diagnose and develop an effective treatment plan. This advanced, patient-friendly dental imaging system is designed to provide greater flexibility in scanning, planning, and treatment. Three-dimensional radiography captures information not possible with 2D x-ray. It may feel like it belongs in a spaceship, but when your goal is to provide the best possible orthodontic care to your patients, sometimes the sky really is the limit.
Our goal at RxSmile Frisco Orthodontics is to provide you with the most up-to-date treatment options so you can make informed decisions about your teeth.
