We are proud to provide a guideline for 3D scanning. Dental Implant Centre Colchester renders Sirona ORTHOPHOS XG 3D, a prominent edge 3D scanner to the citing dentists. The 3G scanner is a top standard dental imaging technology that has pandemic, Cone Beam 3D imaging and voluntary cephalometric arrangements.


This facility is for the dental practitioners who intend to make reference of patients to Dental Implants Centre Colchester for excellent visualisation with 3D CBCT before the dental implant surgery, oral surgery, orthodontic treatment or related oral symptoms.


The patient will be pre-examined by an experienced and skilled dental expert before undergoing a 3D CBCT scan. This will ensure that the correct positioning is carried out prior to the image exposure and that any radiographic stent is correctly placed during the procedure.    

3D imaging is a powerful tool that provides a more accurate approach to treatment planning. The 3D image allows medical experts to have a close look at the anatomical figures with three dimensional reformations and cross-sectional views.

Colchester Dental Implant Centre avoids reporting on radiograpghs and scans provided for citing dental experts. To participate in the irmer 2000 regulations, all scans and radiographs are needed to be rechecked and reported by the recommending expert or by a radiologist. We heartily suggest to report upon all scans and radiographic analizations to eliminate the probability of circumstancial pathology.
