Cone Beam CT Scan
Our practice utilizes state-of-the-art, full-cranial cone-beam CT (computed tomography) technology that provides highly accurate 3-D radiographic images for the diagnosis, planning and treatment of oral surgery, orthodontics, implantology, TMJ analysis, airway assessment, and other dental procedures. Undistorted, anatomically correct views of the jaws, teeth and facial bones along with cross-sectional, axial, coronal, sagittal, cephalometric and panoramic views are easily generated. Three-dimensional images enable a level of anatomical accuracy and patient care not possible with 2-D technologies. This is all accomplished with a fast scan time that mimimizes radiation exposure and reduces likelihood of patient motion. It is an open scanner, making it easy and comfortable for patients who dislike confined spaces. As an additional benefit with this scan there is no need for anything to be placed in the mouth like traditional dental x-rays.
With the addition of cone-beam CT technology in our office, our practice is committed to providing innovative, high-quality, patient care. We are also able to send your scan to a radiologist for further interpretation and review.
