A CT machine, or computed tomography machine, is an advanced diagnostic tool that uses X-ray technology to create detailed 3D images of the inside of the body. In dentistry, CT scans are used to create high-resolution images of the teeth, gums, jawbone, and surrounding tissues. This allows us to accurately diagnose a range of dental issues, from impacted teeth and bone loss to tumors and other abnormalities.
Having a CT machine in a dental practice is extremely beneficial because it allows us to see things that may not be visible with traditional X-rays. For example, CT scans can provide a detailed view of the jawbone, which is important for dental implant placement. They can also be used to evaluate the health of the roots and nerves of teeth, detect infections or abscesses, and assess the extent of damage from trauma. In addition to providing more accurate and comprehensive diagnostic information, CT machines also offer more comfort for patients than traditional X-rays, as the scanning process typically takes just a few minutes and doesn’t require the patient to hold uncomfortable bite-wing films in their mouth. They also emit less radiation than traditional X-rays, making them safer for patients.
An IO scanner, or intraoral scanner, is a device used to create digital 3D models of a patient’s teeth and gums. It works by using a wand-like device to capture images of the inside of the patient’s mouth, which are then assembled into a 3D model using specialized software.
Having an IO scanner in a dental practice is incredibly beneficial for a number of reasons. It eliminates the need for messy, uncomfortable dental impressions, which are traditionally used to create models of a patient’s teeth and gums. Instead, the IO scanner allows dentists to create accurate digital impressions quickly and easily, without causing any discomfort to the patient. In addition to being more comfortable for patients, IO scanners also provide more accurate impressions than traditional methods. They are able to capture even the tiniest details of a patient’s teeth and gums, allowing our team to create restorations that fit more precisely and feel more comfortable.
