Modern advances in 3-D x-rays and medical imaging have provided a huge benefit for our Dentist's ability to serve their patients with more accurate diagnosis's, even in complex situations.
3-D X-Ray Imaging At Westside Dental Centre
3-D imaging allows us to see the precise location of the impacted tooth. 3-D X-Rays eliminate any of the uncertainty that may exist as to the position of the teeth and surrounding structures, something that was a bit more of a challenge with only 2-D X-Rays. We’re proud to offer this service right here at Westside Dental Centre.
A Great Leap Forward
Previously, patients had to be referred to a hospital or an outside radiology clinic to have 3-D X-Rays taken. Now you can save on time, money and energy, having this done quickly and professional in our offices. This state-of-the-art technology helps us diagnose potential issues more accurately, thus providing options for treatment with unprecedented confidence. Westside Dental’s 3-D imaging system gives us a wider range of options for diagnosis and dental treatments in our office, lessening the number of visits you’ll need to make.

An Example of Where & How 3-D Helps
3-D X-Rays are far superior to standard 2-D X-Ray imaging. An example of this is how 3D X-Ray imaging can be used in the planning and implementation of dental implants. The technology allows us to plan out the implant process virtually, before performing the procedure live in-person. This reduces the risk associated with procedures and increases the accuracy. While 3-D X-rays might not be needed for all implants or other dental procedures, each patient will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
Saving Time & Cost
Our system can create a 3-D image of your entire jaw in a matter of 20 seconds - much less time than it would take for you to receive a standard set of eighteen X-Rays. This way we get you in and out of our office more quickly and on with your day, while also allowing diagnosis of any problems more accurately and efficiently than with previous systems. These machines are safe, highly accurate, less invasive, and more affordable given the cost and time savings overall.
Frequently Asked Questions
The frequency of your dental exam will depend on your unique dental health care needs. Many patients visit the dentist every six months. At a minimum you should visit the dentist at least once per year. How well you care for your teeth, whether you have any issues that need monitoring and the status of your general health can all influence the required frequency of your exams. The goal is to catch any trouble signs early.
Talk to your dentist about your oral health care needs and the frequency of your dental exam.
The BCDA has produced a patient fact sheet to help you understand some of the things your dentist may look for during your exam. What is included in a dental exam or at each visit is not the same for everyone. Factors such as age, dental health status, level of general health, medication use and lifestyle choices may influence what is covered. Ask your dentist if you have any questions about your exam or what your dentist is looking for during your exam.
The early stages of dental disease do not have any symptoms. Dental disease is not reversible so prevention and early detection is extremely important. Your dentist is trained to catch early signs of conditions affecting your mouth to stop the progression of disease and prevent small problems from becoming larger ones.
