Three-Dimensional Dental X-raysWe are excited as one of the first dental practices in our area to utilize 3-D cone beam CT digital imaging. Imagine a three-dimensional X-ray that is more accurate than traditional X-rays, is much faster, and does all this with much reduced radiation exposure.
A primary advantage of ultra cone beam images when diagnosing and evaluating treatment options is the dentist’s ability to see the patient’s anatomy in 3-D, instead of flat, two-dimensional images. This allows for much greater accuracy for any dental treatment, especially dental implant placement and oral surgeries. The process takes only a few minutes, and images are captured in multiple cross sections, which allow us to make accurate bone measurements.
