With typical 2-D X-Rays, factors such as the focal position in the mouth, the skill of the operator, and sometimes even the quality of the film or sensor all affect the outcome of the final image. This final image is meant to diagnose a dental issue, but it is superimposed with the anatomy in front of and behind it and often fails at telling your dentist what the dental problem may be.
Cone Beam X-Rays allow your doctor to isolate anatomical problems and properly analyze the structures in all 3 dimensions so that you get the dental treatment you need the first time. Often, patients that have had non-specific problems for years were finally saved by getting a properly done diagnostic 3-D Image, or Cone Beam X-Ray performed. If you ever want to see what your skull actually looks like, ask us, we can show you!
Routine X-rays shouldn't hurt. Routine X-Rays shouldn't take 20 minutes. Routine X-Rays shouldn't miss. Our Cone Beam X-rays are fast, supremely diagnostic and don't require as much squirming in the seat as conventional x-rays and they do it at a fraction of the radiation of current dental standards.
Cone Beam Technology will soon be the standard of care in dentistry. It's another thing that we do that is the best thing to do for our patients. Faster, cleaner, more comfortable, a more efficient use of your time and money!
