CBCT, which stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography, is an advanced imaging technique that has revolutionized the field of dentistry and oral healthcare. With it, our dentist can capture three-dimensional, high-resolution images of your teeth, jawbone and facial structures. This technology allows us to obtain comprehensive and detailed views that are not possible with traditional digital X-rays. By utilizing a cone-shaped X-ray beam, CBCT scans provide a clear and accurate depiction of the oral and maxillofacial regions, enabling us to diagnose and plan treatments with precision.
At our office, patient safety and comfort are of utmost importance. CBCT scans are quick, non-invasive and emit minimal radiation, ensuring that our patients are exposed to the lowest possible dose. Another advantage is its ability to reduce the need for invasive procedures. With the detailed information provided by CBCT scans, Dr. Cristina Anderson can better plan and execute dental root canals, orthodontic treatments and complex oral surgeries. This leads to more predictable outcomes, shorter treatment times and improved patient satisfaction.
Furthermore, this technology enhances our ability to detect and diagnose various dental conditions, including impacted teeth, root canal infections, jaw joint disorders and bone abnormalities. By identifying these issues early on, Dr. Anderson can initiate timely interventions, prevent further complications and provide our patients with appropriate treatment options.
