CBCT Technology Loveland Co
IGDNC is excited to announce the addition of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) technology to our practice. CBCT is a special type of x-ray equipment used when regular dental or facial x-rays are not sufficient, or cannot be tolerated intraorally.
CBCT looks similar to traditional 2D panoramic images, except they allow the dentist to view and manipulate images in 3D. They provide better visualization and location of the hard and soft tissues and obtain crisp, clear, detailed images of your teeth, jaws, nerves, airway, and sinus cavities. These 3D images enhance our treatment and diagnostic capabilities in areas such as: dental implant planning and treatment, wisdom teeth removal, root canal therapy (endodontics), sleep apnea, and Temporal Mandibular Joint Dysfunction (TMJ).
CBCT technology is considered to be safe and state-of-the-art. They emit significantly less radiation than a traditional “CT” scan one might have in a hospital setting. They are quick, effective, and can even be utilized in taking traditional “bitewing” radiographs in persons who cannot tolerate intraoral x-rays.
