Cone Beam Imaging
CT Scanners for Advanced Dental Services
Before creating a dental treatment plan, your doctor may require an image of your teeth and bone, such as an X-ray. Dental X-rays; however, are rendered in two dimensions and therefore do not provide the entire picture. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) produces high resolution, 3-D images. These CT scans, as they are more commonly known, render an accurate representation of your bone, teeth, and nerves. CT scans are one of many advanced technology dental services available at the office of Dr. Paul Denemark, board certified periodontist.
Medical Benefits of CBCT Advanced Technology Dental Services
When you schedule a consultation for tooth restoration or to learn about dental implant cost, a CT scan provides Dr. Denemark the information necessary to create an accurate treatment plan. CT scans display the location of the nerves, tooth roots, and sinus cavities. These scans also depict the jaw bone and its density. This vital information allows Dr. Denemark to plan the placement of your dental implants with greater precision, reducing the risk of complications during the procedure.
Patient Benefits of CBCT Advanced Technology Dental Services
- CT scans are performed quickly, as they are completed in under a minute.
- CT scans are performed comfortably. Patients can stand or sit during the scan.
- CT scans render less radiation exposure, safeguarding patient health.
