Advanced Imaging for Dental Diagnosis and Treatment


Introduction to Cone Beam CT in Dentistry

Aesthetic Family Dentistry is committed to providing our patients the latest in dental diagnostic technology. Our Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), also called Cone Beam CT, is a cutting-edge imaging method. It offers numerous advantages over traditional dental X-rays. With the ability to produce 3D images of your teeth, jaw, and surrounding structures, Cone Beam CT has revolutionized dental diagnosis and treatment planning.

For advanced diagnosis of your dental issues, you can meet with our Port Jervis team by calling (845) 209-2500.

Benefits of a Cone Beam CT

Cone Beam CT technology has revolutionized dentistry by offering enhanced visualization of dental anatomy. This innovative imaging technique produces high-resolution images, enabling us to make accurate diagnoses with greater confidence. 

This imaging allows us to examine the teeth and surrounding structures from various angles and cross-sections. With this information, we can provide meticulous treatment plans that can lead to better patient outcomes. Additionally, this scanning procedure has a lower risk of radiation exposure compared to traditional CT scans. Cone beams are a safer, more accurate tool for dental diagnosis.

The Cone Beam Computed Tomography Process

The Cone Beam Dental CT scan is non-invasive and painless, and it typically takes only a few minutes. During the scan, the machine rotates around your head, capturing multiple images from different angles. These images are then reconstructed into a 3D model that provides a comprehensive view of your dental structures.

Cone Beam Dental CT Patient Benefits

Patients choose Cone Beam CT scans for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Comfort
    Unlike some traditional imaging methods, Cone Beam CT scans are non-invasive.
  • Lower Radiation Dose
    Cone Beam CT scans typically expose patients to less radiation than conventional CT scans.
  • Speed and Convenience
    The entire scanning process is fast, often taking less than a minute to complete.
  • Improved Diagnostic Accuracy
    The detailed 3D images allow for better detection and evaluation of dental conditions.

The Role of 3D Imaging in Dental Diagnosis

3D imaging technology plays a crucial role in modern dentistry. It provides a comprehensive view of the teeth and jaw, enabling us to identify issues that may not be visible with 2D imaging. This technology is particularly useful in complex cases and procedures, including implant placement, root canals, and orthodontics.


Dental Cone Beam CT Safety

Your safety is our top priority. Cone Beam CT scans are designed with patient safety in mind. The machines use a lower dose of radiation than other methods. Our dental professionals are trained to follow strict safety protocols to significantly reduce your exposure.

Cone Beam Technology for Oral Surgery

The precision of Cone Beam technology is particularly beneficial in oral surgery. It allows for accurate planning of surgical procedures, such as dental implants and wisdom tooth extractions. With Cone Beam CT’s accuracy, we can help reduce the risk of complications and improve recovery times.

Cost of Dental Cone Beam CT Scan

The cost of a Cone Beam CT scan varies depending on the imaging complexity and the patient’s diagnostic needs. Our team is committed to providing competitive pricing on all our services. We will discuss all costs and payment options with you before the procedure.

Cone Beam CT vs. Traditional Dental X-rays

Traditional dental X-rays are useful for many diagnostic purposes, but Cone Beam CT scans offer a more detailed view of dental structures. This precise imaging allows for more accurate diagnoses and treatment plans, particularly in complex cases.

Applications of Cone Beam Imaging in Orthodontics

In orthodontics, Cone Beam imaging provides invaluable information for treatment planning. It allows orthodontists to see the exact positioning of teeth and roots. This advanced technology also reveals the relationship between the teeth and the jaw, resulting in more effective and efficient treatment plans.

Recovery Time After a Cone Beam CT Dental Scan

After cone beam imaging, no recovery time is required. The scan is quick and painless, and you can resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
