Dental Imaging in Buffalo, NY
Are you looking for a dental office that provides dental imaging? At Precision Endodontics, we have one of the newest and most advanced 3D Cone Beam CT machines on 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.
Better Dental Imaging Means Better Results
Effective diagnosis is a key to effective treatment. Standard diagnostic devices, like X-rays and digital X-rays, only tell part of the story. In years past, that meant additional exploratory procedures on top of corrective ones. With cutting-edge Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanners, dentists and endodontists can use 3D images to plan corrective procedures more effectively.
About Our CBCT Technology
CBCT technology is truly cutting edge. In addition to bone and hard dental structures, these devices image nerve pathways, soft tissues, and other areas in a single pass.
Compared to conventional CT scans, which rely on high-output X-ray tubes, CBCT dental imaging uses much less radiation while performing essentially the same task. A cone-shaped X-ray beam quickly moves around the patient, generating multiple views (images) that offer sharp insight into the issues to be addressed and the best possible corrective action. There is no image overlap and the views are transmitted directly onto a solid-state sensor.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scans are most commonly performed prior to:
- Placing dental implants
- Working on impacted teeth
- Endodontic procedures
What Are The Benefits of CBCT Dental Imaging?
The sharp images are the biggest advantage. For now, CBCT dental imaging is the closest thing to a 3D printer. This precision imaging saves time during the actual procedure, often resulting in both a better result.
Also, a CBCT scan is completely non-invasive and performed in the open. Furthermore, once the procedure is over, no radiation lingers inside the patient’s body.
