3D Imaging Q & A

What is 3D imaging?

If you think that you might have gum disease, tooth decay, or bone loss, Dr. Bikhazi and her team can find out for sure using 3D imaging procedures. 3D imaging is a type of dental X-ray that gives your provider a more in-depth view of your teeth, gums, and bone — especially structures underneath your gumline.

This helps them determine which, if any, dental treatments you need to get your best oral health.

What are the benefits of 3D imaging?

Some of the many benefits of 3D imaging at Dr. Bikhazi’s office include:

  • Highly accurate results
  • Noninvasive, painless procedures
  • Fast treatment times
  • Patients exposed to far less radiation

Because 3D imaging exposes you to much less radiation than traditional X-rays, it’s very safe. Dr. Bikhazi has a mobile service in her office that offers 3D imaging.

Why would I need 3D imaging?

If you need gum disease treatment — gum grafting, bone augmentation, or implant placement — Dr. Bikhazi will first recommend 3D imaging to determine how much periodontic care you’ll need. She’ll then design a personalized treatment plan that matches your needs.

What should I expect during the procedure?

During 3D imaging procedures, you relax in a comfortable dental chair. While you bite down on a dental device, a machine takes pictures of your teeth, gums, and jawbone. The procedure is fast, painless, and highly effective. Dr. Bikhazi receives your results immediately and discusses them with you.

What do my results mean?

The results of 3D imaging procedures determine which treatments, if any, are right for you. Dr. Bikhazi reviews the available treatments with you and helps you choose one that best matches your lifestyle and preferences. She answers questions you might have, and she always listens to what you have to say about your care.

The team at Dr. Bikhazi’s office offers custom-fitted dental implants, as well as crowns, bridges, and dentures to give you a gorgeous smile. They also provide bone grafting, gum grafting, and laser treatments to restore your oral health.
