Imaging allows dentists and oral surgeons to assess your teeth. If you are experiencing pain or if you need surgery, your dental team will use imaging to determine the severity of your problem and find the best possible solution. At Katy Cypress Oral Surgery and Implant Center, we use different types of imaging to examine, diagnose, and treat our patients. Keep reading to learn about our most popular options.
X-rays are a popular tool in many dentist’s offices because they are quick, accurate, and relatively inexpensive to work with. Getting an x-ray is also a comfortable experience, so even patients with claustrophobia or dental anxiety can get an x-ray without discomfort. At Katy Cypress Oral Surgery, we go beyond the basic x-ray and offer panoramic imaging. This type of x-ray allows us to clearly see all tooth surfaces and also get a look at the jawbone, eye sockets, and sinus cavities.
3D CT Scan
X-rays aren’t the only imaging tool we use. For patients who require more complex imaging, we offer a 3D CT scan. This can be helpful for patients who need dental implants, oral or maxillofacial surgery, or people who need additional imaging after an X-ray.
Additional Diagnostic Tools
Imaging is just one of the many tools we use to diagnose and treat our patients. Call us at 281-667-0607 to learn more about our personalized, comprehensive care.
