Cone Beam Technology
At Crosstown Dental of Palmyra, we offer 3D digital imaging using a state-of-the-art Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Machine. In the last decade, a lot of advancements in imaging have happen! A CBCT Machine produces brilliant 3D images of all oral and maxillofacial structures. These precise images deliver the best diagnostic information so that your dentist has the ability to treat you at the highest level. Patients needing dental implants or those with an infection, this technology allows your dentist to safely and efficiently develop a treatment plan that keeps your health and well-being as our top priority.
In addition, no special preparation for 3D imaging is required and best of all- it’s pain-free. Patients stand stationary for a few moments while the cone beam system rotates around the outside of the head. This brief scan results in hundreds of images. These high definition images very accurately depict your teeth and jaws, showing your dentist the location of nerves, sinus, and other vital structures. Your dental team can develop a comprehensive, individualized treatment plan. Although not all dental offices are equipped with these 3D cone beam machines, we feel that it is important to invest in the latest technology in order to provide the best care for our patients.
