Buffalo Endodontist Examines the Benefits of the Cone Beam CT Machine
We have one of the newest and most advanced 3D Cone Beam CT machines in the market. The Carestream 8100 allows us when necessary to take 3 dimensional images of the tooth and jaw to aid in diagnosis and treatment. We have the ability to see root fractures and extra root canals with this technology.
Some cases are difficult to diagnose, and some patients have had prior root canal treatment, so we have to determine why the first procedure didn’t work.
- One new technology we use is a Cone Beam CAT Scan Machine, a low-radiation machine that takes a 3D image and visually turns the tooth so we can look inside it and see any root fractures.
- If other canals or anomalies exist that weren’t treated before, we need to work on those.
- Because of the Cone Beam CAT Scan Machine’s 3D imaging capability, your dentist may refer you to us for a 3D image to guide him in placing an implant.
- The 3D image also offers your dentist more information about anything that may be questionable in your jaw or tooth.
