Dental Cone Beam Scanning in Champaign, IL
One of the most exciting recent technological advances in dentistry is the advent of 3D dental cone beam scanning. This technology takes a series of images of a patient’s mouth, and recreates these images as a virtual 3D model, very similar to a CT scan in a hospital, with minimal radiation. The system allows Dr. Eric Martin to see angles and aspects of a patient’s mouth, teeth, and bones that conventional two-dimensional x-rays cannot detect. As a result, patients get accuracy, better diagnostics, increased safety, and fantastic results. Here are the many benefits offered by dental cone beam scanning:
- Is currently considered to be the gold standard of 3D imaging, offering the dentist a detailed view of your teeth and gums in high-resolution images.
- Identifies the different types of nerves, bones, and tissues in the mouth, which is something that 2D technology and x-rays cannot provide. The dentist can accurately determine a patient’s bone density, which is useful in evaluating a good candidate for dental implants.
- Increases patient safety, reducing the risk of inevitable complications that may arise during certain dental treatments.
- Identifies abnormalities and conditions in the mouth that may be unknown to you, such as infections, cysts, tumors, and many more.
- Offers a fast and convenient way to check the health of your teeth and gums. The process is done within seconds; thereby minimizing radiation exposure to a great degree.
- Offers a non-invasive scan of your mouth so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. All you need to do is relax and allow us take care of you.
