Our state-of-the-art surgical facilities feature the latest innovative technology, including 3D cone beam imaging and digital impressions.
3D Cone Beam Imaging
To support a higher level of patient care, our practice utilizes 3D cone beam imaging for diagnosis and treatment planning. The 3D computer-generated scans provide a detailed view of existing teeth, bone, nerves, and tissue with three-dimensional and cross-sectional views, which provide critical diagnostic information that is not available with conventional dental x-rays.
Your initial consultation is much more comprehensive with 3D images, which allows the doctors to:
- Evaluate the quality, width, shape, and density of the bone where the dental implants will be placed.
- Determine the proper treatment approach for each individual patient.
- Determine the precise placement of implants, particularly in areas near critical anatomical structures, such as sinuses and nerves.
- Select the correct style and size of the implants.
While cone beam imaging gives the doctors information similar to that generated by a medical CT scan, the radiation dose that is about 1/30th that of medical CT scans.
