Unlock the Diagnostic Power of 2D and 3D Imaging
You can’t treat what you can’t see. Fortunately, 2D and 3D imaging technologies allow dentists to see more of the patient’s anatomy, helping them diagnose and treat with greater diagnostic accuracy and predictability than ever before. Browse our extensive selection of digital dental solutions, from panoramic and cephalometric dental X-ray machines to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) units — from brands such as Dentsply Sirona, Planmeca, DEXIS and more — to find the right 2D or 3D imaging option that best suits your practice’s needs.
2D vs 3D: What’s the Difference?
Both 2D and 3D imaging technologies have their advantages in dentistry, and using them together can provide a more precise, comprehensive picture of a patient's oral health.
A 2D image, such as a traditional panoramic or cephalometric dental X-ray, captures a two-dimensional view of the patient’s teeth and surrounding structures. This allows clinicians to better evaluate cavities, abnormal growth, bone loss, teeth alignment, cysts, tumors, a child’s developing teeth and more.
3D imaging using a CBCT machine captures three-dimensional images of the patient’s teeth, maxillofacial skeleton, soft tissues and nerves, all in a single view — often revealing anatomical details not visible through a traditional dental X-ray. A CBCT scan can uncover factors such as developmental abnormalities, periapical and periodontal findings, TMJ issues and more, all while allowing clinicians to expand into more specialty procedures such as implants, orthodontics and endodontics.

Why I Use KaVo 3D Imaging
When a doctor decides to invest in 3D imaging, it’s typically for a very specifi c reason, such as implant dentistry. However, Dr. Patrick McGann is one of the many dentists who has learned that the KaVo cone beam unit, with its comprehensive diagnostic capabilities, is valuable in treating a far greater number of patient cases throughout his practice.
