The 3D scanner or Dental CT allows a more accurate diagnosis of the dental structure, so improving the treatment plan for each patient. To use it, only the patient has to undergo a radiological test (when it is essential or highly recommended to do it).


3D scanner applications

The 3D scanner is designed especially for complex cases in which the treatments require an exhaustive diagnosis. They are usually cases in which it is important to know the bone structure as well as the root state of the tooth.



The main treatments in which the 3D scanner is used are the following:


  • For dental implants: essential for successful placement of dental implants.
  • For orthodontics: uses such as canines included, teeth outside the bone, extractions ...
  • For periodontics: fundamental in cases of bone loss.

The 3D scanner allows dentists to know in detail the diagnosis of patients. It offers greater comfort and speed in your treatment, since in a few minutes the scanner is performed and the results are obtained. These can be seen on television or computer screens, and this way the explanations of our specialists are easier.
