Cone Beam

When a better, three-dimensional image from teeth to tissue is required.

Our new, Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray device. It is used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient. This latest technology produces three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.

Dental Cone Beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning of orthodontics and dental implants. Cone Beam CT Imaging is also useful for more complex cases that involve:

  • Surgical planning for impacted teeth.
  • Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
  • Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity.
  • Detecting, measuring and treating jaw tumors.
  • Determining bone structure and tooth orientation.
  • Locating the origin of pain or pathology.
  • Cephalometric analysis.
  • Reconstructive surgery.
  • Accurate and safe placement of dental implants.
