Cone-beam CT technology delivers anatomically correct 3-D images that enhances our diagnosis and treatment planning. One CBCT scan provides information normally obtained from all other 2-D radiographs and more.
Using the most advanced dental technology possible is just as important as staying up-to-date on the latest treatment techniques. Because our practice is dedicated to providing you with the safest and most convenient orthodontic treatment options available, we are proud to use Carestream Cone Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT) imaging technology.
Carestream CBCT is a digital, 3D imaging system that allows us to provide quick, comfortable, and effective orthodontic imaging for precise diagnosis, treatment planning, and the evaluation of certain conditions. The data gathered is used to reconstruct a 3D image of your anatomy: dental (teeth); oral and maxillofacial region (mouth, jaw, and neck); and ears, nose, and throat (ENT).
You can take advantage of a more accurate, comfortable orthodontic treatment with CBCT imaging. Special features include:
- A scan that takes only 20 seconds provides enough data for a complete diagnosis
- A safer diagnosis with less radiation than traditional CT scanners
- Increased comfort: the scan is taken in an open environment with plenty of space
- A more cost-effective imaging system
- Data is easily shared, so you can stay informed and be able to make educated decisions on your course of treatment
