What is Cone Beam Computed Tomography?
Cone beam computed tomography, is a three-dimensional radiographic imaging device designed specifically for dental specialists.
However, with the cone beam three-dimensional scan, Dr. Miski can capture and accurately analyze complete three-dimensional views of bone structure and tooth orientation. Therefore, its purpose is to optimize the diagnosis, treatment, placement and viewing the anatomic landmarks in three dimensions.
When planning a case, you can imagine the huge diagnostic advantage, this technology offers, in seeing teeth, jaw and nerves in three dimensions in precise measurements. The technology assists in determining whether there is sufficient bone present or whether important nerves are a safe distance away. Therefore, we feel that the acquisition of this technology was a tremendously important benefit for our patients.
