Dental Program Acquires New 3D Imaging Technology
The Pediatric Dental Program at Nicklaus Children's Hospital has recently acquired the Planmeca ProMax® 3D, a state-of-the-art imaging system that provides clinical teams with 3D images capable of revealing the smallest details of a patient's teeth as well as the entire maxillofacial structure, while minimizing radiation exposure.
The unit captures 3D cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images that offer clinicians – including plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, otolaryngologists, endodontists, orthodontists and periodontists – optimal images for evaluating:
- Underlying bone structure
- Nerve pathways
- Surrounding soft tissue
