What Are 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.
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.
What Can Cone Beam CT Scans Be Used For?
At Sierra Gate Family Dental, we may use cone beam 3D imaging for:
- The placement of dental implants
- A comprehensive view of the head and neck
- Diagnosing and evaluating the extent of tooth decay
- Diagnosing endodontic problems
- Planning root canal therapy

Planmeca Ultra Low Dose
Planmeca Ultra Low Dose – a proprietary low dose 3D imaging protocol that enables CBCT imaging with an even lower patient radiation dose than standard panoramic imaging. The pioneering protocol is based on intelligent low-dose 3D imaging algorithms that decrease effective patient doses significantly without a statistical reduction in image quality – helping clinicians everywhere adhere to the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).
