Our state-of-the-art surgical centers feature the latest innovative technology, including digital radiography. To support a higher level of patient care, our practice utilizes 3D cone beam imaging for diagnosis and treatment.

The 3D computer-generated scans provide an advanced and detailed image of existing teeth, bone, nerves, and tissue with three-dimensional and cross-sectional views. The Cone beam CT scan provides critical diagnostic information that is not available with conventional dental x-rays.

3D images provide more comprehensive information, which allows the doctors to do the following:

  • 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 type and size of the implants.

Virtual implant placement is also available with this technology, allowing the doctors to place implants with increased precision.
