why dental technology mattersServing patients of Erwin, Jonesborough, and Greeneville TN

The world of dentistry has come a long way in recent years. Advances in dentistry have brought us 3D X-ray machines and 3D imaging. While this may not seem like a huge deal from a patient’s perspective, it should be! High-tech dental office in Greeneville, Tusculum Dental Care, wants you to know why these advancements are an essential part of your oral care.


While traditional X-rays are quite helpful in diagnosing dental diseases and problems between teeth or below the gum line, which otherwise would go undetected, 3D X-rays offer advantages that are unparalleled to outdated technology. We also can use this state of the art technology for developing cosmetic dental treatment plans, placing implants, and for orthodontic purposes.

Here are a few of the main benefits of 3D imaging in our Greeneville dental practice:

  • Increased Accuracy – 3D X-rays and imaging provide increased accuracy when diagnosing dental diseases and issues such as gum disease, tumors, cavities, broken or diseased teeth and more. We can see these issues better than before, which means that action can be taken in the earliest stages instead of waiting until the problem gets bigger, requiring more extensive treatment.
  • Less Radiation – 3D imaging is faster, which eliminates the need for multiple X-rays, and means patients are exposed to far less amounts of radiation than compared to traditional X-rays. In fact, 3D imaging emits the least amount of radiation possible.
  • Best Results – Yielding the best results, 3D imaging provides multiple views of the patient’s mouth. In short, 3D imaging means that we can provide better results for our patients, and in less time. Because 3D imaging shows more differentiation between the different tissues in the mouth, your dentist in Greeneville can catch problems that traditional 2D images simply cannot detect. This means better results and a healthier mouth for you!

Is 3D imaging safe?

Yes, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, even children can receive 3D imaging when necessary. At Tusculum Dental Care, we take every precaution necessary to lower you or your child’s risk of radiation exposure. If you have any concerns, however, please discuss this with us at your next appointment.
