One of the ways that we use technology to enhance the effectiveness of your dental care is through the use of cone beam 3D imaging. This technology gives our dentist and team a three-dimensional image of not only your smile but also your mouth, jaws, head, ears, nose, neck and throat. Cone beam imaging can be used to:
- View the head and neck
- Evaluate the face and jaws and analyze the structure of the face
- Evaluate facial trauma
- Identify TMJ disorders
- Plan an orthodontic treatment and evaluate its progress
- Detect teeth that may need root canal treatment
- Diagnose tooth decay, damage or other oral health problems
- Plan a dental implant placement
The cone beam can provide our dentist and team with significantly more information than X-rays. One of the biggest advantages to using cone-beam 3D imaging is that we can understand the relationship between your smile and the surrounding tissues and structures. This can be extremely useful not only in locating problems and creating diagnoses but also in planning your treatment. If you would like to learn more about how we use this technology to improve your smile, we invite you to call our office and schedule an appointment with our dentist.
