It’s called 3D ConeBeam Imaging. It’s fast, simple, and completely painless – patients just stand or sit in a chair for a single, 10-second scan. From that scan, the doctor can quickly see computer-generated views of the bones of the face, the teeth, and other details from any angle.
It’s important for your dentist to have accurate and complete information to plan your treatment. 3D ConeBeam Imaging provides that information, with a host of advantages for you and your doctors.
Typical dental x-rays just focus on your teeth, and for each x-ray picture, you need one exposure. It would take many exposures to even begin to compare to a single 3D ConeBeam scan. But 3D ConeBeam Imaging shows much more than simple “flat” x-rays. This new technology provides more complete visual information to study your case from every angle. Best of all, the original scan data can be duplicated anytime, to provide different specialists with images if needed later. And, there’s no film to get lost.
