CBCT 3D Imaging Technology
CBCT 3D imaging technology is quickly becoming the standard of care for implant placement, cracked teeth, pathology, and more, all while being easier to use and more comfortable for patients than traditional 2D X-rays.
Three-dimensional imaging enables us to see all dimensions for more comprehensive identification of dental problems.
CBCT imaging is also much faster. We can see the images within seconds, so we can give you the answers you need sooner rather than later.
During CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) imaging, an X-ray tube and detector panel rotate around the patient to capture data with a cone-shaped X-ray beam. This data is then used to reconstruct a 3D image of the teeth, mouth, jaw, neck, ears, nose, throat, soft tissue, and overall bone structure as necessary for each patient.
Adam Fienman, DDS, can use CBCT technology for a number of purposes, including:
- Dental implant placement surgery
- Bone quality studies
- Root canals
- Impacted and supernumerary teeth
- Airway analysis
Like CT scans or other imaging techniques, this dental technology does involve some radiation, but it’s minimal. In fact, the amount of radiation experienced during a CBCT scan is similar to that of a typical cross-country airplane flight. The benefits of CBCT scans far outweigh any risks associated with radiation. Comprehensive dental care can actually prevent some forms of cancer, as well as offer a multitude of other benefits.
Our West Bloomfield dental office is proud to provide this service to enhance patient care. By investing in this modern technology as well as many other diagnostic tools, we are making investments into your lifelong oral health.
