3-D Cone Beam Imaging
Digital x-rays are valuable because they show us a two-dimensional image of your teeth, allowing us to diagnose conditions early before they cause pain and damage your oral health.
Sometimes, however, specific procedures require a more detailed image, and 3-D cone beam imaging (CBCT) provides valuable information that we would not be able to see in a traditional x-ray.
CBCT allows Dr. Elnahass to see a complete 3-D image of your mouth that we can view from 360 degrees. It zooms through tissue to show gum structure, teeth, and sinuses, measures the thickness of bone, and determines the orientation of nerves.
These state-of-the-art images provide such highly detailed information that we use them to plan implant placement, tooth extraction, root canals, and orthodontic treatment with fewer risks and greater precision.
