3D CT scanning is a type of dental x-ray image that enables us to see bone, soft tissue and even nerve pathways in one detailed view. Most often, these images are needed prior to surgery or when creating a treatment plan for implant patients.
The iTero digital scanning device can be used to take highly-detailed images and scans of your teeth. These digital-based impressions can be used to create restorations like veneers, crowns, bridge work and even dentures.
