CBCT Imaging

Our office is pleased to offer digital CBCT/cone beam computed tomography imaging for patients who receive dental treatment.

Our newest technology, a CBCT/cone beam x-ray, provides quick, comfortable, and effective dental imaging for the most precise and accurate dental health diagnosis possible. This digital 3D data provides information to assist in:

  • Providing accurate measurements, including the shape and dimensions of your jaw
  • Detection of lesions that may indicate serious disease
  • Identification of gum disease
  • Locating the origin of pain
  • Diagnosis of candidates for dental implants
  • Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals, and nasal cavity
  • Determining bone structure and tooth orientation
  • Assessing the extent of a cracked tooth and pulp(nerve) and periodontal (gum tissue) status

You can take advantage of a more complete dental treatment with digital CT imaging.  Special features for patients include:

  • Better image quality and accuracy
  • One 20-second scan that provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
  • A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
  • Increased comfort with patients in an open environment with plenty of space
  • A means by which doctors can easily share the data with patients.  This is vital in order for patients to stay informed and be able to make educated decisions on their course of treatment
