Family Dental of Lincoln is pleased to feature 3D panoramic X-rays at our practice. This advanced dental technology allows our dentists to more closely examine your teeth for developing problems and quickly provide any necessary treatments. We invite you to call 773-561-5106 for more information about 3D panoramic X-rays in Chicago, Illinois, and to make your appointment.
3D panoramic X-rays are a type of imaging technology used to provide our dentists and team with a comprehensive, detailed view of a patient’s oral structures. Unlike traditional 2D X-rays, a panoramic X-ray will provide a complete image of your entire mouth and supporting structures, including your teeth, gums, jawbone and surrounding oral tissues.
Panoramic X-rays use a rotating arm to capture the images of your mouth. The machine takes multiple images and combines them to create a single, detailed 3D image. This process provides a more comprehensive and accurate view of a patient’s dental health, making it easier for our dentists to diagnose and treat dental issues.
The captured images are especially useful in diagnosing and treating dental problems that are not visible with a standard dental exam, such as impacted teeth, problems in your supporting bone, jaw joint problems, abscesses, cysts and tumors. Our dentists may also use panoramic X-rays to understand your oral anatomy and to help plan and evaluate the progress of your care, including:
- TMJ treatments
- Orthodontic treatments
- Dental implant placement
- Tooth decay
- Dental or facial trauma
- Oral cancer
- And more
This technology is safe, convenient and comfortable for patients, and it is an excellent diagnostic tool for our dentists to use when helping you improve your oral health and smile.
