At Dr. Aki Shirakura and Associates, we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of technology to benefit our patients. We use the most up to date and safest equipment to ensure the best care. One of the main ways we do this is with our 3D Imaging x-rays.
What is 3D Imaging?
3D Imaging is the most efficient view of your entire mouth and jaw. It allows us to see everything in order to diagnose you the most accurately. Traditional dental X-rays can capture two-dimensional (2-D or flat) views, while a 3D image captures anatomical structures with less distortion, more clarity, and unlimited perspectives of areas of interest. Making it the safest most accurate diagnostic method.
What is the benefit of 3D Imaging?
The most important benefit of 3D imaging is it lowers the amount of radiation by 77% compared to traditional x-rays. It is equal to the amount of radiation you would be exposed to on a flight from New York to California!
