The Most Advanced Dental Imaging Technology
Dental treatments are successful when several factors align, including dentist expertise, patient cooperation, and technology. 3D imaging is a major dental technology advancement, offering a comprehensive and detailed view of the patient’s mouth, teeth, jaws, and face.
Dr. Michael’s Dental Clinic utilizes the latest in 3D imaging, the Carestream CS 9300 CBCT, to enhance patient care and experience. This technology improves diagnoses, communication between dentists and patients, and treatment planning efficiency.
The CS 9300 CBCT is a cone beam computed tomography system that provides a highly detailed 3D image of the patient’s mouth. This image is more informative than traditional 2D x-rays and helps dentists make informed treatment decisions.
Benefits of CBCT Scans in Dental Surgery
The CBCT is a crucial tool for oral and maxillofacial surgeons. It provides a 3D image of the patient’s mouth, giving a more detailed view than traditional 2D x-rays. This allows the surgeon to better understand the patient’s issue and plan the surgical procedure with improved predictability, quality, and safety.
The CBCT is often used for complex cases and for planning dental implant surgery. It ensures the most suitable type of implant is used and minimizes the risk of nerve damage or other structural damage during the procedure.
The CBCT is safe and captures images with minimal radiation exposure. Most people can have a CBCT scan, but it requires the patient to keep their head still. Small children or patients who cannot keep still may not be suitable candidates.
