3D and Cone Beam CT scan
A dental cone beam (CB) CT scanner uses x-rays and computer processed x-ray information to produce 3D cross-sectional images of the jaws and teeth.
This will give us detailed information which cannot be obtained from normal x-ray examinations.
Through the use of a cone shaped x-ray beam, the radiation dosage is lower, and the time needed for scanning is reduced.
It is a smaller, faster and safer version of the regular CT scanner.
If you are being considered for dental implants or other special procedures, it enables us at Available Dental Care to assess the exact shape of the bone. These scans can be very helpful in guided implant surgery, high resolution guided endodontics, impacted wisdom surgery and Orthodontics.
Bite wing radiographs use x-rays to show details of the upper and lower teeth in one area of the mouth. Each bite wing shows a tooth from its crown (the exposed surface) to the level of the supporting bone.
Bite wing x-rays can also help determine the proper fit of a crown (a cap that completely encircles a tooth) or other restorations (eg, bridges).
Bite wing x-rays detect decay between teeth and changes in the thickness of bone caused by gum disease and can also see any wear or breakdown of dental fillings.
