Our office is one of the few that offers the most accurate and detailed x-ray machine that gives 3-dimensional views of your jaw and facial structures, which is commonly referred to as a CBCT. This advanced technology can reveal infections, abnormalities and concerning areas that conventional x-rays do not. We thoroughly review this x-ray to ensure your jaws, teeth, bony structures of the face, nasal cavity and sinuses appear healthy. Common things that we can identify with this technology are: carotid artery calcifications (potentially life-saving when identified), infections around roots of your teeth, fractures in the roots of teeth, bone loss around teeth, deviated nasal septums, sinus infections, etc.
The other great benefit to having a 3-dimensional x-ray is to be able to digitally plan for implant placements. Merging the scans from our intraoral scanners with the 3-dimensional x-ray from our CBCT, your implant can be planned ahead of time! This leads to a faster surgery the day of implant placement with very high levels of accuracy. It’s safe to say that our office is well equipped and prepared to provide you with the highest quality treatment.
