Our dentists and team use state-of-the-art dental technology to ensure that your treatments are tailored to your individual needs. Among the technologies used in our office is cone beam 3D imaging. This advanced imaging system allows our dentists and team to gain a more complete understand of your mouth, including your supporting oral structures. Cone beam 3D technology allows our dentists and team to view a three-dimensional reconstruction of your entire orofacial region, including your mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose and throat.
The picture captured by cone beam imaging is much more comprehensive than that provided by standard X-rays. This makes cone beam technology highly effective in diagnosing and evaluating dental conditions, and an invaluable tool in treatment planning, especially for oral surgical procedures such as implant placement. Other ways cone beam imaging may be used include:
- Evaluating the jaws and face
- Viewing the head and neck comprehensively
- Diagnosing dental problems, including tooth decay
- Diagnosing endodontic problems
- Planning root canal therapy
- Analyzing dental and facial trauma
- Evaluating the progress or orthodontic treatment
- Assessing a TMJ disorder
- Examining abnormal teeth
