3D Cone Beam computed technology is a modern form of x-ray equipment that produces three-dimensional images of your teeth, jawbone, nerves, and soft tissues in a single span.
At Coast Family Dental, we prefer to use 3-D imaging for diagnosis because it offers many advantages for the patient, including:
Higher Diagnostic Accuracy
Cone Beam Imaging can catch problems that would otherwise be difficult to notice with traditional x-ray imagery. Imaging can adequately assess and identify issues like subcutaneous infections and unhealthy tissue or bone anatomy.
With a more comprehensive view of your oral layout, your dentist can recommend the best solution for your problem. It also improves the speed and accuracy of more intensive treatments like a root canal, implant installation, and wisdom teeth removal.
Superior Comfort and Convenience
You don’t have to bite down on a mould or piece of plastic. Cone Beam Imaging can scan your whole head without you needing to do anything. This imaging is beneficial for patients with sensitive teeth or gums.
This diagnostic tool is also very fast, usually only needing a few seconds to complete. Regular x-rays, meanwhile, may take up to 10 minutes.
Minimal Radiation Exposure
While rare, repeated prolonged radiation exposure can cause cancers, organ damage, and other health risks, which is why medical professionals are on the constant lookout for better technologies.
Unlike traditional full-body CT scans, Cone Beam Imaging emits substantially less radiation and reduces the dosage by up to 98.5%.
Going to third-party imaging centres to get your CT scan can be very expensive. With Cone Beam Imaging provided by your dentists, you can eliminate the middleman and save you money.
