Digital x-rays are excellent tools for creating a detailed view of one's teeth, jaw, and gums. However, they are only able to provide a two-dimensional scan, which could leave some irregularities left undetected. Made Ya Smile in Pearland, TX takes a comprehensive approach to improve your oral health by offering 3D oral imaging. This detailed technology is able to capture a 360° image of your skull, face, teeth, and bone, as well as other structures in your mouth and jaw. Our state-of-the-art cone-beam device gives our dentists access to a 3D image of your mouth, allowing us to view the oral structures and any underlying concerns in greater detail. 3D imaging can be used throughout the planning and recovery stages of dental treatment, such as crowns, dental bridges, dental implants, full-mouth reconstruction, and more. To learn more about our practice's cutting-edge technology, contact our office in Pearland, TX and speak to a member of our team.

3D imaging is a useful tool for any patient receiving a comprehensive dental exam or experiencing dental concerns, like discomfort or swelling. With this equipment, our Made Ya Smile team will be able to view a comprehensive, three-dimensional scan of your head, jaw, and mouth. This can allow us to detect abnormalities, diagnose an oral issue, or craft a unique treatment plan based on the condition of your mouth. Our 3D imaging technology uses low levels of radiation to capture a detailed image of your oral condition, so there is no need to worry about any side-effects. If you're a child or teen, 3D imaging is especially useful for tracking the progressive development of the jaw and face. If you have suffered any oral or facial trauma, this technology can be used to restore your wellness because it captures a full view of the head and skull as well as the mouth.
What to Expect
To perform the 3D cone-beam scan, we will ask you to sit in front of the imaging system. The small device will then circle around your head and take detailed images of your facial and oral structures as it does so. The scanning process typically takes less than a minute, and the images gathered will be transferred to your patient file. Because this device uses a small amount of radiation, you should inform us if you're pregnant or believe you're pregnant so we can take the steps necessary to guarantee your ultimate safety.
Depending on your oral condition and treatment needs, you may not require another round of 3D imaging for some time. If any issues are present, our dentist will develop a customized treatment plan to restore your dental wellness. The number of cone-beam scans you receive will be based on your unique needs. When traditional, two-dimensional digital x-rays aren't enough to provide our team with an overall view of your mouth, 3D imaging is an excellent way to receive a comprehensive viewing of your inner oral and facial structures.
Because 3D imaging can often be a part of one's annual dental examination, the costs for this scanning technology are typically covered by insurance. If you do not carry insurance, have any out-of-pocket costs, or want to ask about the insurance providers we accept, contact our Pearland, TX office. Our team at Made Ya Smile will do everything in our power to ensure that your dental care is accessible and as affordable as possible. We accept a range of payment methods, including medical financing through CareCredit® or our own in-house program.
