What to Expect

Similar to dental x-rays, 3D imaging is usually a part of your normal dental examination. The actual process is comparable to having x-rays taken, but when using 3D imaging, the imaging system will automatically move 360-degrees around your head. The entire process takes approximately less than a minute for a complete mouth view. The pictures are then uploaded for Dr. Gombert to examine and see whether you're suffering from any dental problems that may need therapy. Since the imaging procedure can expose individuals to radiation, women that are nursing or pregnant should inform Dr. Gombert beforehand. Additionally, kids should minimize radiation exposure and only undergo 3D imaging if needed and recommended by a specialist.

Follow-Up

There's not a need for an official follow-up after undergoing oral imaging, but it's strongly suggested and highly recommended that patients keep bi-annual teeth cleanings and annual dental checkups to maintain optimal oral health. A meticulous dental wellness regimen is also just as imperative, such as cleaning your teeth twice a day and flossing every day to help keep your teeth healthy and strong.

Insurance Coverage

When used as a part of a yearly or bi-annual oral cleaning or exam, 3D imaging is normally covered by many insurers. Our skilled team will get in touch with your insurance company and inform you whether there are any out-of-pocket fees which aren't covered by your benefits.
