Our 3D Imaging
Here at David G. Johnson DDS, PC, we strive to provide all of the newest advances in technology to optimize our ability to provide superior endodontic care. To meet this goal, we have obtained a CBCT system for our office to ensure that we are able to provide the most accurate, effective treatment possible. 3D imaging can provide many different benefits to endodontic treatment.
What is a CBCT machine?
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography. These machines are able to provide information about many different aspects of oral health, including tooth structure, nerve pathways, bone health, soft tissues, and more. To obtain an effective 3D image, the machine rotates completely, taking hundreds of images in a matter of seconds. These images are then compiled in order to reconstruct a 3D image of the tooth structure and other components that make up oral health.
The Benefits of CBCT
There are many benefits to the use of CBCT machines for endodontic purposes. These machines provide improved accuracy, which helps to ensure the best diagnosis possible for potential issues. This goes a long way toward optimizing your oral health and allowing us to provide the most effective, superior treatment available. CBCT machines create lower radiation levels than traditional x-ray machines, which provides additional protection for your health. They are also a painless method to obtain a 3D image. The exceedingly fast and comfortable process ensures the least inconvenience for patients. Obtaining a CBCT image requires no special preparation and is a noninvasive process.
Our 3D imaging services go a long way toward enhancing the accuracy of the image. This helps us to provide the best services to protect the health of your smile. Through the use of 3D imaging, we can obtain the best possible image with a painless, noninvasive, fast, and comfortable process. To learn more about our 3D imaging services, contact us at David G.
