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.
