Without question, reading traditional xrays requires a bit of imagination.
Here is an xray on a new patient we saw last week. This patient had a root canal on a molar about 10 years ago. It didn’t stop hurting, so they redid the root canal. The pain still didn’t go away, but he decided to live with it because they couldn’t find anything wrong. This xray doesn’t reveal what is causing his pain.
Now enter 3D xrays. Take a look at the video below when I looked at his 3D image.
That says it all, doesn’t it? Our patient is now pain free all because of a simple technology that could show us inside a tooth. This patient had been hurting for TEN years!
3D xrays are becoming more popular in dental offices and without question is a better diagnostic tool when examining a patient!
