3D Imaging

What is 3D dental imaging?

Dental technology has advanced at a dizzying rate over the past few decades, and today’s dentists and oral surgeons have tools at their disposal that would have been simply unimaginable just a few short years ago. 

Dental imaging is no exception. Today’s imaging platforms offer unprecedented insight into the soft and hard tissues within your mouth. At Pinnacle Peak Oral Surgery & Dental Implants, Dr. Kim uses the CS 9300 Select system, an imaging tool that can improve a range of dental procedures through 3D imaging. 

The system uses cone beam CT scan technology to create unbelievably clear images. 

What is 3D imaging used for?

Dr. Kim uses the CS 9300 3D imaging system to enhance numerous procedures, including:

  • Wisdom teeth extraction
  • Placing dental implants
  • Evaluating temporomandibular joint disorder treatment options
  • Diagnosing complex pain cases

This advanced imaging tool helps Dr. Kim determine the cause of your oral health symptoms and structure a precise treatment plan. 

What are some advantages of the CS 9300 system?

The crystal clear clarity of the images is a top reason to choose the CS 9300 system. Also, because the system is used to diagnose numerous conditions, you enjoy a faster diagnostic path and money saved in the form of not having to run all over town to multiple appointments. 

The system is also incredibly versatile. Dr. Kim can select the field of view to suit your specific set of needs, which means you won’t be exposed to unnecessary radiation. This is a system that can be customized for you, versus one that forces you and your oral surgeon to conform to the limitations of the imaging system. 

What’s the next step after 3D imaging?

It depends on who ordered the imaging. If Dr. Kim recommended 3D imaging as part of your diagnostic plan, then he reviews the results and advises you on your best course of action. 

If another medical professional ordered your 3D imaging, they receive the results as quickly as possible. Because the images are digital, they can be easily shared with your entire oral health team. 

When you require specialized care, Dr. Kim uses his vast network of professional contacts to help you find a provider who can meet your needs. He also coordinates with the rest of your team to ensure you’re getting the care you need to thrive, both within and outside of Dr. Kim’s office.
