3-D Cone Beam Imaging (CBCT)
The digital x-rays we take are invaluable when we’re diagnosing problems like decay and gum disease. But there are cases where we need a more comprehensive view, and that’s when we turn to 3-D cone beam imaging or Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT).
Using 3-D dental imaging is on its way to becoming the new standard of dental care. This leading-edge technology provides our dentists with a 3-D image of the structures of your mouth. Dr. Clemmons can view details like the positioning of your teeth and roots, and the location of structures like your sinuses and nerve pathways
With the aid of 3-D cone beam imaging, we can plan orthodontic treatment, and perform procedures like dental implant placement and root canals with a high degree of accuracy and positive long-term results.
