Periodontist and Dental Implant Specialist

In the past, patients would have to visit a hospital or outpatient facility to obtain a three dimensional x-ray to fully evaluate the remaining jaw bone present in a patient's mouth. In approximately the year 2006, a technological advancement was introduced when those three dimensional images could be obtained in a dental office setting. The three dimensional x-ray image produced by a cone beam computerized tomographic (CBCT) machine is actually more accurate for what dentists need than the medical scanning machines.

Cone Beam CT Scans

Advanced radiography is essential to ensuring the safety and success of complex dental surgery. Cone beam digital CT scanning allows us to take 3-Dimensional, low radiation, high resolution CT scans of your facial anatomy. We can then view these images from different angles, take precise measurements, and easily share 3-D data with other doctors.

Cone beam imaging is also ideal for patient comfort. It offers an "open-environment" design that reduces anxiety limiting discomfort and exposure to radiation.

Precision Implant Placement

A key to dental implant safety and success is advanced radiography. A CT scan ensures that every possible precaution has been made to reduce the risk of involvement of the nerves in the lower jaw, and the sinuses and nose in the upper jaw. This helps to reduce chair time and the possibility of complications. Until recently, CT scans were only done in hospitals or medical facilities.
