3 D Cone Beam
At Gould Family and Sports Dentistry, we offer 3D digital imaging using a state-of-the-art Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Machine. It produces vivid 3D images of the oral and maxillofacial structures. Your dentist is then able to provide the best diagnostic information for your treatment. If you are considering dental implants or have an infection, these images allow your dentist to carefully and expertly develop a treatment plan with your overall health as our top priority.
There is no special preparation for 3D imaging and it’s completely painless. Patients stand stationary for a few moments while the cone beam system rotates around the outside of the head. Hundreds of pictures form using that brief scan. These high definition images very accurately depict your teeth and jaws, showing your dentist the location of nerves, sinus, and other vital structures. With the aid of this technology, we can develop a comprehensive, individualized plan. Not all dental offices are equipped with these 3D cone beam machines, however we feel that it is important to invest in the latest technology in order to provide outstanding care for our patients.
