Advancements in technology have made dentistry more accurate and treatments substantially more effective. This is especially true with imaging technology as it has opened the door for better detection of dental problems. Dentalmed Associates has always been committed to using the best technology, the standard of care, to bring our patients the best treatment and our use of 3D dental imaging is another example of that.
CBCT is a form of X-ray that uses a cone-shaped beam to create three-dimensional images of the teeth and surrounding structures. This system forms images in real-time which are rendered directly onto a computer screen.
3D imaging allows for higher fidelity and resolution that could not be obtained from traditional X-rays. This means we are able to provide a more accurate diagnosis and identify certain dental health issues that would otherwise go unseen.
As you can imagine, advanced imaging has found a wide range of applications. For example, implants and extractions have become much easier to plan as we can get a highly accurate image of the treatment area. More complicated surgical procedures like maxillofacial and endodontic surgery have also benefited as we are able to receive precise measurements of root canals and features of the jaw.
