3D Imaging for Oral Surgery
The cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems gives our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice state-of-the-art technology to help diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence.
Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing the patient’s exposure to radiation. Our 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatment in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The cone beam CT scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits the patient’s specific treatment needs. This helps limit the patient’s radiation exposure, as we are focusing specifically on the area of concern.
The cone beam CT system brings the latest 3D technology to Dakota Valley Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of the patient’s case. We use this innovative technology to seamlessly share 3D images of the area of concern with the patient and the patient’s referring dentist/doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on the patient’s care, improving their experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
