Frequently Asked Questions About Advanced Dental Technology

Is a CBCT scan safe?
Yes. While CBCT scans do involve some radiation exposure, they expose patients to less radiation than a traditional CT scan.
What other advanced dental technologies do you use?
We have invested in numerous specialized tools and technologies including electronic apex locators, microscope-integrated cameras for recording video and for capturing photographs during the procedure, ozone irrigation, digital medical records, noise-canceling headphones, ultrasonic devices, flatscreen television monitors in every operatory, and WiFi.
What does a CBCT scan show?
On top of providing a detailed visualization of a tooth, a CBCT scan provides a complete image of all of the structures of the mouth and jaw, including hard tissue anatomy, alveolar bone, nerve canals, sinuses, and more.
When might a CBCT scan be necessary?
Studies have proven that CBCT has a significant influence on the examiner’s treatment plan. In fact, 3D imaging identifies up to 40 percent more previously undetectable (with traditional 2D) lesions. We will use this innovation to aid our accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment of the root canal system. This technology is especially useful to diagnose a root fracture, evaluate tooth resorption, or to look for deterioration that might otherwise remain undiagnosed.
