Cone Beam Computed Tomography (3-D X-Ray Technology)
Computed Tomography (CT scanning) has been available for medical diagnosis for an extended period of time. Cone Beam technology has allowed the development of similar devices in dentistry with much lower radiation exposure (similar or less than routine dental x-rays) and very precise imaging. This is performed in the office and the results are available within minutes allowing for the most accurate diagnosis and treatment planning. In addition, where appropriate, virtual surgery (implant placement) can be used and computer generated guides can be fabricated to allow for extremely precise outcomes.
