Our dentists and team are dedicated to leveraging cutting-edge dental technology to ensure that you receive the highest quality of dental care possible. We take pride in employing cone beam 3D imaging technology, which plays a pivotal role in enhancing the precision and effectiveness of our dental services. Cone beam 3D technology, or CBCT scanning, is an advanced imaging system that provides our dentists with a comprehensive, three-dimensional reconstruction of your oral and craniofacial anatomy, including your teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose and throat.

We employ 3D CBCT imaging for a wide array of purposes, such as:

  • Planning Dental Implant Placement: It aids in meticulously planning the precise positioning of dental implants for optimal functionality and aesthetics. While we only offer implant restorations, our dentists do work closely with trusted specialists to provide your implant placement and these images aid in that procedure.
  • Evaluating the Jaws and Face: We use it to assess the condition of your jaw and facial structures, enabling us to identify any anomalies or issues.
  • Viewing the Head and Neck Holistically: This technology provides a holistic perspective of your head and neck, allowing for a thorough evaluation of any concerns.
  • Diagnosing Tooth Decay and Dental Problems: It is invaluable for the detection of tooth decay (cavities) and other dental problems at their early stages.
  • Detecting Endodontic Problems and Planning Root Canal Therapy: We rely on it to pinpoint endodontic issues and plan effective root canal therapy.
  • Analyzing Dental and Facial Trauma: It helps in the assessment of dental and facial trauma, facilitating accurate treatment planning.
  • Monitoring Orthodontic Treatment Progress: It enables us to track the progress of orthodontic treatment with precision.
  • Visualizing Abnormal Teeth: It aids in visualizing and diagnosing abnormalities in tooth structure or alignment.
  • Assessing TMJ Disorders: For patients with TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, this technology provides valuable insights into their condition.
