"I have been a patient of Dr. Gombert's for several years now. The staff is great and so is the care. I had extensive work done recently (two implants, veneers, crowns, gum lasering) and I waited several years because I have always been afraid of veneers. My teeth turned out great and Dr. Gombert is a perfectionist. He sent two of the veneers back because he wasn't satisfied with how they looked. This is a major investment and it's your smile. I was very grateful to have a dentist how cared as much about the final outcome as me."- E.C. / Healthgrades / Jan 19, 2020
3D oral imaging may be utilized to identify a large array of dental issues for individuals of any age. For kids, it's equipped to monitor developments and changes in dental and facial growth.

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.
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.
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.
