At Oxford Family Dentistry, Dr. Stefan Speck and his professional team are dedicated to providing patients with high-quality dental care. Our dental office uses modern technology to diagnose and treat patients in Oxford, PA. We use modern technology integrated into our Oxford Family office so we can quickly find and treat dental problems. Digital scanners make it easier for us to view the mouth structure and take detailed images. We use these images to educate our patients and create customized treatment plans.
3-D CBCT Scans
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is often used to help plan out dental restorations, orthodontic treatment, oral surgeries, and more. We may take these modern, detailed x-rays at regular visits to keep track of the placement and health of your teeth and gums. To take this scan, the patient stands in the middle of the x-ray machine as it rotates around them, taking 3-D images.
This CBCT scanning tool helps us see accurate, three-dimensional images of the teeth, gum tissues, nerves, and bone. CBCT scanners also allow our team to find healthy bone tissue for patients who are receiving dental implants. 3-D CT scans help us determine whether a patient requires bone grafting to prepare for implantation.
i-Tero scanners are digital intraoral scanners. They offer a more comfortable alternative to messy dental impression trays. Using a handheld i-Tero scanner, we can take precise digital images of the teeth and gums. We can also show patients images of their mouths on a screen in real-time. This is a great education tool so patients can fully understand their own oral health.
Additionally, using an i-Tero scanner, we are able to map out our patient’s orthodontic treatment. For patients with misaligned or crooked teeth, we will take a scan of their teeth prior to treatment in order to follow their progress.
