CT Scans and Cone Beam Imaging systems generate 3D, high definition x-rays within seconds. The panoramic images are remarkably clear, which helps with diagnosing and treating dental ailments. These scans allow us to quickly assess your dental needs and get you back out enjoying your life in less time than you might expect from traditional imaging equipment.
The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why we refer our patients to a Cone Beam imaging center. Unlike traditional x-ray systems, the Cone Beam system produces a very low dose of radiation, thus reducing unnecessary exposure.
The Cone Beam is used in many dental procedures. It can be used to determine a treatment plan for dental implants, helping determine size and placement of the implant. It can also be used to diagnose and treat periodontal disease. Cone Beams give us a clear view of facial nerves and bone structure, which allows us to plan a customized procedure to protect your nerve endings. Such advanced technology allows us to minimize pain and speed healing!
Our office utilizes Carolina OMF Imaging for the reading of our cat scans. Carolina OMF Imaging also assists with treatment planning, recommending the best placement for implants.
