3D Dental Imaging Technology in Santa Barbara
At See Me Smile Dental, we are committed to using the latest dental technology to provide you with the best dental care experience. Fortunately, we have many modern advancements in dental equipment and tools, now available, to facilitate this care.
At the heart of our dental process is the utilization of advanced scanning and imaging techniques. ("Imaging" refers to methods of taking "pictures" of your internal anatomy.) These high quality imaging technologies enable us to know exactly what treatment you may need.
Traditionally, anatomical imaging could only capture flat or two-dimensional (2D) pictures. With recent advancements, we now have 3D imaging that gives us a much better idea of what is going on inside your mouth, teeth, and even gums.
In modern dentistry, images can be captured either inside (intraoral) or outside (extraoral) the mouth. Some of our intraoral cameras are quite tiny and do not cause discomfort when used.
