Cone Beam 3D Imaging

What Is Cone Beam 3D Imaging?

Cone beam 3D imaging is a revolutionary technology in the field of dentistry, providing detailed three-dimensional images of your teeth, jawbone and soft tissues. Dr. Ken and Dr. Powell harness the power of this advanced diagnostic tool to plan and execute dental treatments with unprecedented precision. Unlike traditional X-rays, cone beam imaging offers a comprehensive view of dental structures, nerves and sinuses without the need for multiple scans.

Benefits of Cone Beam 3D Imaging

The precision of cone beam 3D imaging enables our dentists and team to diagnose conditions that might be missed with standard X-rays, plan dental implant placements with exactitude and evaluate the jaws and face for orthodontic treatments. This technology significantly enhances treatment planning, outcomes and patient safety by providing critical information about potential complications before any procedure begins. Furthermore, cone beam imaging is quick, painless and exposes patients to less radiation than traditional CT scans.
