Cone beam technology has revolutionized the field of dentistry, offering precise 3D imaging that provides invaluable insights for various dental procedures. This advanced imaging technique allows our dentist to see beyond what traditional X-rays can reveal, making it an essential tool at Melrose Dental Arts.
Cone beam technology is particularly useful in complex dental cases, such as implant planning, orthodontic evaluations and impacted tooth assessments. If you require a dental procedure that necessitates a detailed view of your oral structures, Dr. Ali Amiri may recommend cone beam imaging. It is especially crucial for treatment planning in cases involving precise measurements or assessing conditions that impact multiple dimensions within the oral cavity.
During a cone beam scan, you will be comfortably seated in a dental chair, while the machine rotates around your head, capturing multiple images that are reconstructed into a 3D image of your mouth and jaw. The procedure is painless and noninvasive, typically taking just a few minutes. After the scan, Dr. Amiri will discuss the results with you and determine the best course of action based on the detailed images.
Cone beam technology provides comprehensive, highly detailed images that aid in precise treatment planning, reducing the margin for error during dental procedures. Additionally, it minimizes radiation exposure compared to conventional CT scans while offering more information. Cone beam imaging is essential for improving the accuracy of diagnoses, ensuring better outcomes and enhancing the overall patient experience. It plays a pivotal role in modern dentistry, contributing to safer, more efficient and effective dental care.
