Took me a while to post a review, but I was recently thinking back about how terrible my cracked tooth was and how much Dr. Carmichael did for me. He's the pro you want."- D.G. / Google / Jun 26, 2021

Who Is a Candidate for 3D digital Imaging?
Our oral surgeons utilize 3D imaging to identify and gain a better understanding of a wide variety of dental conditions among patients. For teens, this dental technology lets us monitor changes and developments in dental and facial structures and is utilized during orthodontic treatments to make certain that teeth are shifting and aligning properly. Advanced 3D imaging is also employed when planning for and performing surgical tooth extractions, dental implant placement, and corrective jaw surgery, or to evaluate head, neck, and facial pain or trauma. Digital dental technology further enhances the treatment planning process, providing Dallas, TX patients the best possible option for monitoring and treating oral concerns.
What to Expect With 3D Digital Imaging?
At PURE Oral Surgery, the 3D imaging process is very similar to having x-rays taken except that the imaging machine will rotate 360-degrees around your head. The entire process is generally comfortable and only takes about 30 seconds to generate a full-mouth view. When the process is complete, the images are instantly transmitted to our computer system and easily viewed by our surgeons. Since digital imaging can expose patients to radiation, women that are nursing or pregnant should let a member of our team know beforehand so special precautions can be taken. Your 3D images will be stored in your digital patient chart and utilized by our team to diagnose, plan treatments, and perform treatments for oral conditions.
What to Expect After 3D digital Imaging?
Once your 3D images are taken, they will be displayed on our computer monitor. One of our caring oral surgeons will review your images with you, taking special care to point out any areas of interest or concern. These images may be taken periodically to monitor your condition throughout the course of your care, or to evaluate your treatment or healing progress. By utilizing 3D digital imaging for Dallas, TX patients, our skilled team can also minimize trauma to surrounding tissues during treatments and reduce the risk of complications during surgical procedures.
