What is a 3D CT Scan?
Our office utilizes the latest technology, including the cone beam 3D CT scan. This type of scan offers a high-resolution three-dimensional view to allow us to make the most accurate diagnosis and plan treatment for the placement of dental implants, the treatment of pathology, the completion of bone grafting procedures, the treatment of facial trauma, and to address any additional dental conditions.
The cone beam 3D CT scan tells us a lot more than conventional X-rays and helps determine if you are a good candidate for implant surgery or other surgical services. The 3D CT scan eliminates surprises, prevents unnecessary procedures, and helps us better prepare for your surgery. The exact location of anatomical structures, the contours of the jaw bone, and the best sites for your implants before going into surgery are revealed in the 3D CT scan. This eliminates surprises during surgery, resulting in less operating time and fewer complications for you.
The cone beam 3D CT scan is very fast and is done at our office at the time of consultation. Your doctor will review the images with you on our large, flat screen, high-definition monitors. In comparison to the regular medical CT scans, the cone beam CT scan has far less radiation and is much less costly.
