Digital x-rays and CT-Scans are powerful tools for diagnosing.
Digital imaging and CBCT scans have revolutionized the field of dentistry by providing accurate and detailed images of the teeth, jawbones, and surrounding tissues. These technologies allow dentists to detect dental problems at an early stage, which can prevent more serious conditions from developing. Digital imaging is also an invaluable tool for treatment planning and monitoring the progress of dental treatments.
CBCT scans, short for cone-beam computed tomography systems, are a variation of traditional computed tomography (CT) systems. In the dental profession, CBCT systems rotate around the patient, capturing data using a cone-shaped X-ray beam. This technology provides three-dimensional images that are critical for diagnosing conditions such as impacted teeth, jaw tumors, and facial trauma. Overall, the value of digital imaging and CT scans in dentistry cannot be overstated, as they enable dentists to provide better care and improve patient outcomes.
At Sandy Dental, our Acteon X-Mind Prime panoramic machine is CBCT enabled, which means that we provide all your digital imaging needs right in our office. We also offer other professionals the ability to refer their patients to us for CBCT imaging. When their patient comes to our office, we provide the scan and then give them a copy of their results on a CD, which they can take to their dental professional for evaluation and treatment.
