Cone Beam technology provides a 3D digital tomographic view of the patient’s area of interest.
A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With Cone Beam systems the doctor is able to get a full 360-degree view of the tooth and all surrounding areas.
The 3D Cone Beam scanner provides nearly limitless views of the teeth while using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago. It allows a detailed assessment, significantly sharper images than a conventional CT image!
It provides safety
The knowledge of the spatial relationships of neighboring structures is important, e.g. before a wisdom tooth operation, to determine the exact position of the nerve in the lower jaw.
In implantology, this method reliably determines bone availability and the operation can be planned predictably.
The success of a sinus surgery can be made visible, or the position of a hearing aid in the middle and inner ear can be presented for control purposes.
