What is Cone Beam CT Scans?

Cone beam 3d imaging technology allows us to develop a three-dimensional image of the nose, neck, ears, throat, mouth, jaw, and teeth. While traditional x-rays capture a two-dimensional image, 3d imaging captures clearer images of the oral and facial structures and how they function. With 3d imaging, we can see all facets of a damaged tooth and all aspects of the complete smile. The technology allows us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments best suited to your needs.

As we strive to offer better care for our patients, we have chosen to invest in a CBCT imaging unit from Planmeca. This powerful device offers 2D digital panoramic imaging, extraoral bitewings, and periapical images as well as a variety of 3D field-of-views and many exclusive advancements that provide us with incredible images and a wealth of diagnostic information. 

Low Dose Cone Beam CT

With this 3D imaging unit, we have an unprecedented degree of control in limiting radiation exposure to patients. Most notably, it offers Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol.  This allows us to drive radiation levels down lower than traditional dental x-rays, without sacrificing image quality.
