3D X-ray procedures
A precise view of the health of your teeth
Thanks to the latest technology, we now have the opportunity to take three-dimensional images of the mouth area of our patients using digital volume tomography (DVT).
More insight, less radiation exposure
The special feature of the 3D X-ray procedure is that the finest detail is visible thanks to the perfect image quality, whereas we would not usually be able to see this. 3D technology offers new perspectives and insights into the oral region. And even better: there is very low exposure to radiation; indeed, this is 80% lower than with CT.
Advantages of the 3D X-ray procedure
Zahnfleischbluten bei der täglichen Zahnpflege sowie Rötung und Schwellung des Zahnfleisches können die ersten Anzeichen für eine Parodontitis sein. Gehen Sie dann am besten sofort zum Zahnarzt. Durch die Früherkennung haben Sie die besten Chancen auf Heilung.
3D X-ray - the safety advantage
3D technology offers us a completely new dimension in terms of safe diagnosis. We can use it to pre-plan surgical and implant procedures. 3D X-ray procedures are the ideal examination method in many other areas too, for example, for:

So-called digital volume tomography (DVT) is used with the 3D X-ray procedure. This prepares X-ray images - as you will know from traditional computed tomography. The special feature of DVT is that it moves right around the jaw area and therefore captures a great many individual images. The computer calculates a three-dimensional, high-resolution image of the skull from these individual images. The dentist sees the pathway of the jaw and facial nerves, the situational relationships of the teeth, the composition of the bone as well as dental and jaw diseases.
Yes, that's right. The radiation exposure is eighty per cent lower than with traditional computer tomography. This is due to the fact that the DVT generates X-ray images with an extremely short length of exposure. The radiation dose is therefore much lower.
On the one hand, much lower radiation exposure, and on the other hand, the perfect image quality. You can see even the most minute detail on the 3D images. This enables precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
