Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Our Cone Beam 3D Imaging machine offers our patients images quickly. Our dentists are able to diagnose our patients better, catching problems sooner than they would be able to with only traditional imaging. It allows us to view your teeth, roots, airways, and even sinuses in less than ten seconds. We are also able to monitor TMD.
By using Cone Beam 3D imaging, we are able to diagnose and treat our patients quicker so that they don’t have to spend as much time in our office. We can view the images in just a few seconds instead of minutes, so we can start treatment right away!
Instead of traditional X-ray film, digital X-rays use electronic sensors to capture images. The system then saves and displays your images instantly on a computer.
This technology completely eliminates the need to process film and does not require the disposal of environmentally harmful chemicals and waste products. Digital X-rays reduce patient exposure to radiation by up to 90% compared to traditional X-rays.
Who needs digital X-rays?
Digital X-rays help your dentist diagnose and create customized treatment plans by showing information not visible during a regular dental exam. Digital X-rays can show what’s happening between teeth, under the gums, and in the jaw. Without X-rays, dental issues can go undetected until they become a larger problem. Digital X-rays commonly reveal the following oral health concerns:
Tooth decay between teeth
Fractures in fillings
Improper tooth root positioning
Cysts and abscesses
Problems inside the tooth
Problems below the gum line
The team at City Dental Clinic uses high-quality digital X-ray scans to diagnose and treat dental problems at early stages when they’re easier and less expensive to treat.
How often do I need dental X-rays?
The City Dental Clinic team only recommends X-rays when they’re medically necessary, based on your dental examination and symptoms. If you’re a new patient, you may have digital X-rays performed so your dentist can have baseline images to examine the hidden areas of your mouth and to compare against changes at future visits. Each patient is unique, but many patients have digital X-rays taken every three years.
Are digital X-rays safe?
Radiation exposure from digital dental X-rays is minimal and considered safe. Combined with precautions taken by the City Dental Clinic team, including having you wear a lead apron to protect your body during the X-ray, digital X-rays are extremely safe for most patients. You should let your dentist know if you are pregnant.
