The added dimension offers a “surgical view” that adds precision to treatment planning and implementation. With low radiation cone beam technology provides us with a three-dimensional, digital image of structures beneath the surface of the teeth and gums. This unprecedented view includes teeth roots, internal canals, and bone structure. With the Cone beam’s precision scans, we no longer rely only on two-dimensional X-rays for diagnosis and treatment planning with this technique the dentist is better equipped to:
- Uncover the cause of a patient’s previously undiagnosed pain
- Assess airway space and snoring
- Contribute to precision dental implant placement, making the surgery less exploratory and invasive; reduced trauma to surrounding tissue means that you can recober more wuickly after the procedure
- Assess patients with malocclusions for orthodontic needs
- Pinpoint disorders of your TMJs (temporomandibular joints) that cause headaches, teeth clenching or grinding (bruxism), or other serious issues that can negatively impact your oral health.
