NEW in 2018 Dental Cone Beam Technology at Gledhill Dental
We've invested in a 3-D imaging machine that makes regular X-rays seem like child's play, and takes you into the enhanced realm of modern dentistry. Best yet, it's all in full color. Not every dentist can provide this level of thorough dental care, and we are pleased to offer this improved technology at our practice.
Dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient.
Dr. Gledhill and the Gledhill Dental team may use this technology to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan.
Benefits of using a Cone beam CT include:
- The focused x-ray beam reduces scatter radiation, resulting in better image quality.
- A single scan produces a wide variety of views and angles that can be manipulated to provide a more complete evaluation.
- Cone beam CT scans provide more information that conventional dental x-ray, allowing for more precise treatment planning.
- CT scanning is painless, noninvasive and accurate.
- A major advantage of CT is its ability to image bone and soft tissue at the same time.
Please visit with any member of our team to learn more about the use of this cutting-edge technology.
