Faster, more accurate diagnosis with cone bean scanner at your Carmel, Indiana dental office
The Dental Cone Beam Scanner, also called the cone-beam computed tomography systems (CBCT), is a state of the art medical equipment used to better diagnose, plan treatments, and evaluate conditions of dental patients.
It rotates around the patient’s head to capture data that will be used to construct a 3D image of the teeth, mouth, jaw, and neck.
Dental professionals have been using cone beam scanners to create a dental implant treatment plan, repair abnormal teeth, assess the condition of the jaw and mouth, diagnose and treat gum disease, evaluate the cleft palate, assess for cavities, particularly those that are harder to spot, and diagnose root canal and dental trauma.
Why use Cone beam scanners
Cone beam scanners are non-invasive and they produce accurate 3D images that help produce better results and added comfort to patients.
They are used to help determine the correct size and placement of the implants.
Cone beams also help minimize pain and speed up healing because they allow a better view of the nerves and bone structure. Your dentist can then create a customized plan to protect your nerve endings.
Cone beam scanners also make it possible to catch dental issues earlier, when they can be treated with less complicated and less expensive procedures.
