3-D Cone Beam Imaging (CBCT)
Dental x-rays are invaluable aids for accurately diagnosing problems and determining the safest, most appropriate treatment. When Dr. Levy plans dental implant placement, however, he needs an image that includes more detail than a two-dimensional digital x-ray can provide. Cone Beam Computerized Tomography, also referred to as CBCT, is leading-edge technology that gives Dr. Levy a 3-D view of all the structures of your mouth.
When planning dental implant placement, CBCT helps our periodontist determine the quality and quantity of bone and the position of teeth, nerves, sinuses, tissues, and airways. This is invaluable information because accurate planning ensures that we place your implant in the optimal depth and position. Planning your procedure with cone beam technology shortens treatment times, helps minimize invasive procedures, and improves long-term outcomes.
