3D Cone-Beam for Implants
If you are in need of a dental implant, your dentist may utilize a 3D cone beam during your dental implant treatment. Dental implants are a popular way to replace missing teeth. They are a permanent solution that can help restore your smile and improve your oral health. Traditional x-rays can be used to place implants, but they can sometimes miss small changes in the bones or surrounding tissues.
A dental cone-beam CT (computed tomography, or CT) is a specialized type of x-ray machine that may be used instead of conventional dental or facial x-rays when additional information is required. This technology may be used by your doctor to generate three dimensional (3-D) pictures of your teeth, soft tissues, and nerve pathways in one scan. This technology allows your dentist to get a clear picture of the area around the implant site and detect any changes that may have occurred since your last x-ray.
Using a Cone Beam for dental implants has many benefits, namely that it allows your dentist to place the implant very precisely. This is important because accurate placement reduces the risk of complications and leads to a quicker, more comfortable recovery.
