At Stamford Dental Group, we feel that an investment in technology is an investment in our patients. We’ve made it a priority to stay current on the most recent dental advancements, integrating the right tools into our practice. This enables us to provide a more comfortable patient experience and more reliable, precise, and effective outcomes.
Cone Beam CT Technology
As an advanced type of digital radiography, cone beam technology provides the dentist with a three-dimensional, digital image of structures beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. This unprecedented view includes teeth roots, internal canals, and bone structure. CBCT (Cone-Beam Computed Tomography) scans are similar in detail to traditional medical CTs, but taken in a fraction of the time. This extremely precise image is also done with a fraction of radiation of a medical CT.
CBCT scans can be used to plan root canal or orthodontic treatment, place implants more precisely, pinpoint TMJ disorders, and much more. Since you’ll have access to the cone beam technology in our office, you won’t need a referral to a radiology lab. Your scans, diagnosis, and treatment will be conveniently done at our office. When we see the detailed 3D renderings of your teeth and jaw, treatment can be more targeted and, thus, more effective.
TRIOS® 3D Scanner
TRIOS® 3D Scanner enables both dentists and orthodontic specialists to obtain detailed 3D digital impressions of a patient’s teeth and occlusion to deliver the most precise, efficient, and comfortable care. A guided scanning process using an ergonomically designed wand captures and integrates multiple intraoral images from every angle to generate highly accurate 3D impressions. The TRIOS® 3D Scanner provides a far more pleasant office experience for the patient than the conventional methods of taking dental impressions. Compatible with multiple digital systems, the TRIOS® 3D Scanner allows for the seamless and efficient generation of dental models for the custom fabrication of dental prostheses such as crowns as well as orthodontic aligners. With the TRIOS® 3D Scanner, the practitioner consistently obtains the most precise information for more predictable results and better outcomes of care.
