When it comes to providing holistic dental care, the more the dentist can see the condition of a damaged tooth and the surrounding issues, the more precise and complete the treatment administered. The 3D cone beam CT is a special type of X-ray machine that has proven to be useful in cases where regular facial or dental X-rays are insufficient.
The procedure does not require any special preparation, which means that our patients in Newbury Park, Thousand Oaks, won’t have to spend more time in the dentist’s chair during diagnosis than they need to. And more importantly, you get to enjoy better treatment planning for faster healing and recovery.
Cone beam CT can be used to produce detailed images of the bone tissue that are needed to examine jaw diseases, facial bone structures, dentition, sinuses, and nasal cavity. It is mostly used to develop a treatment plan for orthodontic problems, but can also be used for:
- Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) Precise placement of dental implants
- Reconstructive surgery
- Detecting, measuring, and treating jaw tumors
- Cephalometric analysis
