(Newswire.net — July 15, 2015) Tustin, CA –3D dental imaging is a new development in the field of dental care that is helping dentists and patients create better treatment options. According to Dr. Ramyar Elyassian, a leading periodontist in Orange County, California, one reason he uses 3D X-ray technology is to help his patients visualize their dental issues and understand the treatments he recommends. “Our 3D image scanner, which has been designed specifically for dentistry, helps with patient education. Patients can see dental anatomy in an accurate, real-life perspective that helps us explain what we are planning to do and why.”

However, the most important use of 3D imagining by this Orange County implant dentist as seen at http://irvinetustindentalimplants.com/ is for diagnosis. “The precise imaging permits us to diagnose from exact, undistorted, one-to-one images. This results in greater diagnostic accuracy and greater diagnostic confidence,” says Dr. Elyassian. He also says that 3D imaging offers him the ability to virtually place implants for a better outcome in about half the time of other techniques.

According to this dental implant specialist, the 3D CT scan imaging system has very low radiation exposure, with 100 times less radiation than traditional CT scans. This dental implant expert also adds that 3D scanning can be used in a wide range of procedures such as assessing the pathology of hard tissue, identifying root fractures and periodontal disease, and creating predictable dental implant placement through guided implant surgery or finding endodontic periapical lesions not seen on 2D dental X-Rays.

“Our office uses the 3D scanner here during normal appointment times, so there is no need for a special session or appointment,” notes Dr. Elyassian. “With our comprehensive, in-office dental evaluation, we are able to find 25 percent more abnormalities than with traditional 2D imaging. This procedure also costs less than a medical CT and offer greater diagnostic accuracy.”
