Cone Beam CT Scanner
Cone-beam computed tomography systems are radiographic systems used by dental professionals to analyze and reconstruct 3D images of a patient’s teeth, jaws and surrounding anatomy. The information obtained by means of CBCT imaging is useful in both diagnosis and precise treatment planning when two-dimensional diagnostic films are insufficient. Dental CBCT is useful for multiple types of analyses as well as the assessment of maxillofacial disorders or pathology. It is also most useful in surgical planning, including the accurate placement of dental implants.
Digital x-rays are one of the most important new advances to our office. We are not only able to reduce your exposure to radiation but also increase the diagnostic proficiency. In addition to increased diagnostics we reduce the amount of harmful chemicals and other waste materials associated with traditional x-ray technology. The reduction in waste was a big consideration when deciding to invest in digital technology. We pride ourselves in being ‘green’ and environmentally responsible.
