3D Imaging

3D imaging technology has advanced the oral surgeon’s ability to diagnose and treatment plan various clinical situations with a higher level of accuracy than regular X-rays. This technology is available at our Toronto location. The images are interpreted by our Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist, Dr. Ernest Lam, who is the Director of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology at University of Toronto.

The CS 9300 system gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help us diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our new 3D imaging system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and dental treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits.

Our new 3D scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. Applications of this technology include: dental implant treatment planning, corrective jaw surgery planning and pre-operative simulation, localization of impacted teeth and surrounding anatomy, as well as diagnosis of various lesions within the jaw bones.

The CS 9300 system brings the latest 3D technology to Crescent Oral Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail aids in treatment planning and help us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. We can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
