What is Cone Beam CT Scans?
Cone beam 3d imaging technology allows us to develop a three-dimensional image of the nose, neck, ears, throat, mouth, jaw, and teeth. While traditional x-rays capture a two-dimensional image, 3d imaging captures clearer images of the oral and facial structures and how they function. With 3d imaging, we can see all facets of a damaged tooth and all aspects of the complete smile. The technology allows us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments best suited to your needs.
