Cone beam x-ray technology produces a high resolution, three-dimensional, color image with unprecedented detail. We can zoom through the image to view bone and soft tissue with incredible accuracy. We can see images from every angle, including the biting surfaces of teeth. This can be used to create a 3-D model to be used for planning and eliminate the need to take a traditional impression.
The precision of the 3-D image is extremely useful in placing implants, planning orthodontic treatment, locating root canals, evaluating problems with the jaw joints, and diagnosing possible cysts, tumors, or infections at earlier stages.
Cone beam x-rays help us plan your treatment with increased accuracy and a more detailed diagnosis. It’s a technological advancement that helps us improve your oral health.
