Now, it is obvious that Galileo won’t exactly be at your dental appointment. In fact, his scientific works have little to do with your dental health. With new technology being introduced every day, the field of dental medicine isn’t one to be exempted from the many benefits brought about by new machines. 3D dental imaging, such as the Galileo 3D CT scan, present a clear set of advantages for both dental practitioners and patients alike in improving the overall clinical experience.
3D scans, in a way, provide a live feed of a patient’s dental anatomy from various angles. The various perspectives allow for a better view of the structure of the bones, making it easier to locate root fractures and canals. Even more importantly, 3D scans provide dentists the ability to gain more accurate measurement of their patient’s dental structure. These scans can be used in both diagnosis and treatment planning to increase its possibility of success and allows dental practitioners to be more confident in preparing for various dental procedures, such as extractions, root canals, implants and so on.
The use of 3D dental scans also creates a more engaging environment where dental practitioners and professionals can assess their patient’s dental health, while at the same time the patient can also ask questions about what they see on the screen. This allows for constant communication between patient and doctor, allowing for a more comfortable dental visit for the patient, which may help put them at ease, especially those who suffer from dental anxiety.
