Cone Beam Dental Imaging
Cone Beam dental imaging Viewing anatomically accurate and precise images, complete with bone, nerves and tissues, improves diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment, and exposes possible problems that may be undetectable with traditional 2-D imaging methods.
There are many advantages over traditional CT scans. First, with cone beam CT scanning the patient is subjected to far less radiation, because we use a focused beam with a physically larger sensor allowing us to capture all the axial slices covering the face and the jaws in one scan. Since we capture the entire volume with one scan, there is no redundant overlap of slices, resulting in major reduction of radiation.
