Dental Cone-beam Computed Tomography
Cone-beam computed tomography is a type of dental x-ray equipment that can be found in out-patient offices. It works to produce 3-D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone when a regular dental or facial x-ray is insufficient. The purpose of these x-rays is to provide more detailed images of the jaw, and other bony structures of the face, like nasal cavities and sinuses. It does not provide all the details a conventional CT scan would, though, like details of soft tissue, muscle, and nerves.
Our doctors utilize this modern dental technology to be able to place precision dental implants as well as perform other dental restoration procedures. CBCT scanner technology allows for safer, more effective, and more precise dental treatments that help to ensure our Sun City West patients receive the highest standard of professional dental care possible.
