3D Cone Beam Scan Mountain View
At Smiles Dental Care, we use the most advanced dental technology to achieve healthy, beautiful smiles for our patients. With high-definition 3D scans, Mountain View dentists Dr. Bill Hall, Dr. Tiffany Chan, and Dr. J. Janice Chou can plan your dental implant procedure or other dental treatment more precisely and efficiently than ever before. The latest cone beam CT technology at Smiles Dental Care allows us to view all of your teeth and the surrounding bone in 3D. Compared to traditional x-rays, cone beam CT scans lead to much more effective identification and diagnosis of oral problems.
What is Cone Beam CT 3D Imaging?
With Smiles Dental Care’s cone beam CT technology, an x-ray head will encircle your head for about ten to twenty seconds. Dozens of small, extremely low-dose x-rays are taken from different angles. The “cone” in cone beam CT means the x-rays are focused to the precise area of interest. This minimizes greater exposure and allows higher resolution with less radiation. A powerful computer then combines these different images to create a 3D model of your teeth and jaws, or even your condyles (if you’re experiencing jaw pain and need TMJ treatment) or airway (for sleep apnea cases). On the cone beam CT software, Mountain View dentists Dr. Bill Hall, Dr. Tiffany Chan, and Dr. J. Janice Chou view your teeth and bones from every angle–even from the inside. Dentists Dr. Bill Hall, Dr. Tiffany Chan, and Dr. J. Janice Chou then measure precise distances and angles and thoroughly plan all dental surgery on the cone beam CT software before actually beginning your treatment.
Thanks to our in-office cone beam CT scans, Dr. Bill Hall, Dr. Tiffany Chan, and Dr. J. Janice Chou are among the few Mountain View dentists who can better identify small issues before they become large and virtually plan treatment before beginning your dental surgery. The dentists also use these crisp 3D cone beam images to clearly explain your condition and treatment, so you will be well informed and comfortable with your treatment options.
