Cone Beam Technology, which features 3D imaging, will help them to better serve patients.

Everything’s better in 3D, especially when it comes to medical procedures. Drews Dental Services has upgraded their X-ray equipment recently to using cone beam technology — a method of 3D imaging. With this upgrade, it allowed the dentists at Drews to better serve each and every one of their patients.

According to Dentistryiq.com — a website catered to helping dentists worldwide to promote oral health — “cone beam imaging is radically transforming dentistry.” Cone beam imaging is a relatively new technology in the dentistry industry, but has already made a huge impact on how dentists gather information. The transformation has gone from two-dimensional to a 3D image, which allows dentists to see the structure of any given field. Eugene Antenucci, DDS is quoted on Dentsitryiq.com by claiming this imaging technology is “a quantum leap.”

Planmeca ProMax 3D Max is “a dedicated 3D imaging device,” according to the Planmeca website. This device has a new home right at Drews Dental Services’ office, where they can now require all different sizes of information to diagnose more accurately than ever. From the smallest specialized cases to an image of the entire skull, Drews Dental Services has the ability to obtain this information and data three-dimensionally with the Planmeca ProMax 3D Max.

Because of its three-dimensional ability, the Planmeca ProMax 3D Max is able to pick up details like never before for a multitude of diagnostics including endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analylsis. Plus, its profound anatomical understanding offers a wide array of volume sizes so a dentist can pinpoint details for a small case or look at the bigger picture with a full-skull scan.

To learn more about how the Planmeca ProMax 3D Max furthers the abilities of Drews Dental Services and how this state-of-the-art technology can possibly help you and your oral hygiene, reach out to the professionals at the office.
