3D Imaging and Panoramic X-Ray

Cone Beam technology provides a digital tomographic 3D view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas. The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.

We have the Sirona ORTHOPHOS SL Imaging Machine in our office, which brings new possibilities for treatment planning by providing data for:

  • Full jaw 3D images – used for dental implant treatment planning
  • Dental Implant Computer Guided Surgery
  • Wisdom teeth/impacted teeth evaluation
  • Endodontic evaluation
  • TMJ (jaw joint) evaluation
  • X-rays for those unable to tolerate an intraoral sensor
