Why 3D Cone Beam Imaging


The health and safety of our patients is our highest priority, which is why we utilize a cone beam imaging system in our office. Unlike traditional x-ray systems, the Cone Beam system produces a very low dose of radiation, thus reducing unnecessary exposure. Some additional benefits of cone beam imaging include:
  • Visualize anatomy that cannot be diagnosed externally or from traditional x-rays
  • Create better, more effective treatment plans for many dental procedures
  • Assess benefits and risk of treatment options
  • Analyze the position and orientation of critical structures, such as inferior alveolar nerve, mandibular lingual undercut, nasopalatine canal and maxillary sinus prior to the procedure
  • Up to 10x less radiation exposure to the patient than traditional x-rays
  • Faster scan time (10-20 seconds vs several minutes)
  • Less expensive
