Relaxing and Anxiety-free dental experience
We offer different types of sedation that would best suit your needs.
CBCT images provide invaluable information that is not contained in conventional 2-dimensional films. The quality of CBCT images is comparable to conventional medical CT scans but at a fraction of the radiation dosage. This ensures that radiation exposure is kept to a minimum.
Uses for CBCT Imaging
The CBCT scanner allows us to see things a traditional X-ray cannot show. It can be used to diagnose, and create treatment plans for, a variety of different oral health issues:
- The best placement of dental implants after you have suffered tooth loss.
- A better view of the condition of your jawbone. We can see bone resorption and determine if a bone graft is necessary prior to implants.
- Examining the condition of your sinus cavities and nasal passageways. With the ability to see your sinuses, we can better determine the need for a sinus lift.
- A close view of the nerve passageways.
- Root canal treatment. CBCT imaging allows us to see the internal anatomy of your teeth, which cannot be done with a traditional X-ray.
- Finding and evaluating the condition of impacted teeth (wisdom teeth or other teeth).
- Diagnosing pathological diseases that are not evident on a traditional X-ray.
- The condition of your jaw in the case of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
- Evaluating tumors in your jaw.
- Reconstructive jaw surgery.
Benefits of CBCT Imaging
CBCT imaging provides a number of different benefits:
- The procedure is pain-free and non-invasive.
- High quality, high precision images.
- Precise 1:1 measurements that no other form of dental X-ray can offer.
- With a 3-dimensional image, we are provided with multiple angles. This allows for a better, more accurate diagnosis.
- A single scan shows bone, soft tissue and your nerves.
- We can manipulate the image, which allows us to zoom in on target areas.
- With the image right on the computer screen, you can see what we see. This allows you to understand the diagnosis, and why we are making certain recommendations. It also allows you to become more actively involved in your own dental care.
