Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Understanding the unique composition of your smile is vital to a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. At Maplewood Dental, you can enjoy the latest in digital X-ray technology-cone beam 3D Imaging. Unlike flat, two-dimensional X-rays, cone beam images provide a 3D digital replica of the bones and tissue of your face, teeth, jaw and head. Your computerized image is easily manipulated, allowing your dental team to zoom in specific areas to view your scan from various angles and to ultimately understand the complete makeup of your smile. This understanding is extremely useful in implant dentistry as it pertains to treatment planning and guided surgeries. Further, the modality aids in diagnosis of pathology and in cases of dento-facial trauma. Best of all, your cone beam scan is painless, takes only ten seconds and safely operates with a lower dose of radiation than a traditional CT scan with a scanner rotates around your head in one complete circle. Enjoy a truly customized treatment plan based on your exact dental needs.
