Truly one of the most important imaging and diagnostic breakthroughs in modern dentistry, cone beam CT provides 3D images of the jaw structures and teeth, with extraordinary accuracy and detail. It has become the gold standard for patient care in implant dentistry.
The 3D images enable us implant to plan our surgery so we are able to avoid causing damage to nerves and to vital structures, including blood vessels and the sinuses.
Virtual surgery can be performed and evaluated before actually surgery takes place. And since we have our own 3-D Dental Scan machine, we can, during a delicate surgical procedure, stop to take an additional scan, if warranted. This gives us the ability to maintain the safest possible conditions, even in the most difficult surgical situations.
Barbetseas Dental Clinic is one of the few dental practices to provide in-office cone beam CT and panoramic x-rays. Most practices have to send their patients to an outside imaging center.
This equipment defines “state of the art”. Our cone beam CT, operated by our expertly trained staff, offers maximum convenience, safety and precision. These 3D films of the jaws and the surrounding structures may, in some instances, allow us to detect potential problematic lesions of the head and neck.
