Here at Oral & Facial Surgery of New Mexico, our staff uses top-notch surgical tools and imaging devices to provide the patient with the most accurate diagnosis possible. Dr. Bryce B. Heiner uses the CS 9500 system to create precise 3D scans through cone beam CT technology. This 3D scanner presents our oral surgeon with crystal-clear, detailed digital images, unlike a traditional scanner.
Our team uses 3D scanning technology for procedures at all three of our office locations in Las Cruces, NM, Roswell, NM, and Alamogordo, NM. 3D imaging is valuable for procedures such as the placement of dental implants, complicated wisdom teeth extractions, pre-prosthetic operations, orthognathic (jaw) surgery, and various other treatments.
Benefits of 3D Imaging
A 3D scanner generates high-quality images and allows our oral surgeon to identify all our patients’ oral surgical needs. Additionally, the CS 9500 machine limits the amount of radiation exposure for each patient compared to a traditional X-ray. Some of the benefits of 3D imaging include the following:
- Allows Dr. Heiner to plan your treatment even when you’re not in the office
- Increased accuracy of the images, which limits any surprises or complications during treatment
- Significantly less exposure to radiation
- Easy to share images with your other physicians
With the use of 3D imaging at Oral & Facial Surgery of New Mexico, our oral surgeon can analyze your imaging results and plan your procedure without your presence at the practice. This convenience is valuable to patients who do not always have the luxury of making multiple appointments with our friendly staff beyond their oral consultation and surgical treatment appointments.
